The current Transparency level is used if OnScreen is closed and then re-opened.

Transparency Notes: When Transparency is Enabled, the window interface to Windows changes (Layered Windows), and the following are known issues:

  • The Magnifier panel can now magnify images under the OnScreen window itself, providing a more intuitive operation.

  • When operating with CrossScanner, CrossScanner's IconWindow will be displayed below OnScreen. It is strongly recommended that Transparency not be enabled if using CrossScanner.

When enabled, the OnScreen Tablet PC Interface will be running, and will be in the StartUp group.

When Enabled, Exit or Close from the Menu will only hide OnScreen and OnScreen will not exit with the Developer's Kit CloseMTS.
