Thanks mouser. That did it. Yes, might stick that in the Help file or make it easier to figure out how to do that. It would've taken me a good while (infinity?) to figure that out.
Help file talks about transparent layers, but not transparent initial background.
Saw the background style & Inner Chessboard earlier - couldn't figure out why it didn't apply it to 1st background. BTW, that setting is under "Preferences
> More Interface Options," for those keeping score at home.
1) Since there are several background settings under the "More Interface Options," & the transparent setting is under resize (??), shouldn't they all be together, or some reference to each other if kept as is? I'd think they should have their own section - "Background Options," because they're really not "for the UI." That's just me.
2) The "Enable / Disable Toolbar Buttons" window is too small & not expandable / no horiz. scroll, so some options descript. get cut off.
3) Is the color of the side toolbar's background controlled by SSC or Windows (Vista)? It's gray & some tool icons are fairly gray or grayish blue. If it's Windows, I need to change it in Color & Appearance.
Just as was looking in SSC, following your directions, got a Window error:
Access violation at address 008713AE in module 'ScreenshotCaptor.exe'. Read of address 059F1780."
Not sure if it's related, but at that time, couldn't close the SSC Prefs window - frozen. Had to close SSC. No errors in Event Viewer.
Got couple other questions - will put in diff post.
