transparent windows: GeekBind Preference Pane
Authored by: tbolt502 on Jul 20, '04 10:57:35PM

Windowshade looks well useful ...

The GLPed "GeekBind 2.0" preference pane recommended in the hint above is also well worth looking at. Very flexible and easy to use.

I did not find any documentation, but it is straight forward to use:
- unzip & drag the "GeekBind.prefPane" file into your Library (I assume either system or user will work)
- in the System Preference in the "GeekBind" panel, set a key binding (keyboard short-cut) for "increase alpha of window" & "decrease alpha of window" options. You can then use these two key binding to increase or decrease the transparency of any window under the mouse.

There are some other options for other window actions with key binds. I have not gone through all of it, but the alpha (transparency) looks the mosty useful. (Not as many features as WindowShade, it what GeekBind has seems useful.)

Too other significant bouses:
- GLP!
- keyboard based
