Description Lukas Hasik 2008-01-18 15:58:25 UTC
let user define the time after which the floating window becomes transparent by a property. This property can be set up
in options or layer

IMHO the dragged window does not look nice. See attachment.

I agree with Lukas. Imagine, that you have two monitors and you want to have some useful informations on second one
(e.g. output window). In current state, everything on the second monitor will be transparent in a few moments and you
can't do anything about it. So it seems to be quite logical to have such option and thus have the possibility to turn
the transparency off or set the timer.
