Choose Native Mode and select KMD. When using Agama you can make a z-transaction only in Native Mode.

Hint: You can also choose MNZ or BTCH instead of KMD. BTCH and Monaize blockchains sync much faster to 100% than Komodo.

Click Transparent funds and select an address with funds.

Hint: If you use a t-address (starts with R) to make a t->z transaction, the transaction can be seen at Komodo explorer and it's transparent. What you don't see is the z-address - where the funds ended up - but what you see is the amount transferred to an unknown z-address and the amount that transferred back to the t-address (origin). If you want to make a private transaction you need to make a z->z transaction. So first you need make a transaction from your t-address to your own z-address. Then you can send funds from your z-address (starts with z) and make a z->z transaction.

Example of a t->z transaction at explorer.
