desktop calendar transparent problem.

Postby Chernsha » Mon Jan 16, 2017 11:41 pm

hi ,
I would want to ask how to set up a transparent desktop calendar so that the calendar can be transparent to see the Windows OS Wallpapers .
I do not want to use the upper right corner of the transparency bar,
because the text in the calendar will also follow the transparency into a blurred look.
And when I set the transparency for the calendar cell, there is always a background color in the desktop calendar.
How I can set up the vueminder to show as the wallcal3 or desktopcal appearance?
Thank you.

Hi Chernsha, welcome to the forums. You can adjust the transparency level via the slider bar. You are correct, the text will also be semi-transparent. If you configure your calendar appearances (in the Calendar Properties of the main window) to have higher contrast between the text color and background colors, it will help make the text more readable on the desktop calendar. Unfortunately, there's no mechanism to only change the Desktop Calendar background transparency without affecting the text transparency too.
