I believe it is Windows only.

Did you turn on transparency in IDE Settings | Appearance | Transparency section? I don't think it's turned on by default.

ok i see the setting now. When I use it the screen that I float turns gray and I can't see anything. Doesn't really matter I don't really float screens.

thanks for the help

I don't use them either, but I've been playing with it from this discussion. I've attached a screenshot of what it looks like on my machine. What does yours look like?

Ouch. What version of Windows do you have? I'm on Win2k ServicePack 4.

i've also enabled direct draw in my idea.lax file....maybe that's it...dunno

yeah, I've got

in my idea.lax file. I guess that might be it. If not, I'm at the end of my rope. I would suggest filing a tracker report if you've got the time. Even if you don't care about this features, someone else with your config may think it's indispensible.
