Using Semi-Transparent Panel Windows

Panel window can be semi-transparent when they are floating. This makes the panel windows a little like a HUD (Head Up Display) in a game.

Panel transparency is only available if the panel is floating and the "Enable transparent panels" option is enabled inside the Options > Preferences: Display. See: Display Options.

When a panel window is transparent, you can click through it to the text below it, as long as you are not click­ing inside an object within the floating window.

To adjust the transparency amount, click on the transparency button in the panel’s window-control toolbar.
