OK, I think I get it now. You want to actually SEE transparency and be sure that its color contrasts with bg (because it could happen that palette color set as transparent is similar to bg color). But, do you really need to separate setting for all 3 modes? Wouldn't one in General be enough? Somethi...

But you still to have to change this option for very image, because every image requires another bg colour?

Re: Rearranging tools dialogs for more consistent look&f

Where do you want 'File listing'? I think it should go simply to Tools. Was in Tools before I was afraid of that :( I cannot find the thread with move request now. Maybe there are good reasons to place File listing in Create, but I don't know them. My opinion is that Create should contain activitie...

Re: Rearranging tools dialogs for more consistent look&f

Also, I think Options>Browser>Misc options should be extended for all above dialogs- why we have only and just Slide show and Convert there? Yes right But is it necessary to be able to set for convert AND slideshow AND Stripe AND ...., or only one setting? Or perhaps 2 Slideshow and other? In my de...

Why not change background color then?

Aside from the time and effort required to add this, you can't really say it's a bad feature. :idea: It's all the point. You cannot separate a feature from implementation/testing/maintaining effort when considering it's addition. Pierre wrote that GUI rewrite is required, so I consider this feature...

Making a feature for damaged files could only have sense if damaged files are common. I think this is not the case. How many of your media files are damaged and you keep them? You still didn't write when one could make use of such option. Why predefined filters don't work for you? Have you noted my ...

I wonder what purpose does it have. And if it has, what features could be added to make such functionality really complete.

Re: DX: Thumbnail view in File list (from Slide Show dialog)

Thumbnail view in File list (from Slide Show dialog). It could be added also to other dialogs, e.g. Batch Convert... Why stopping there and not adding all file display modes to File list...? OK, it was a joke. I think the only usable modification here could be adding mode like List or Details, but ...

Create AVI file, Export to PDF file, Export to Flash file, Create CD/VCD/SVCD And add these items (and Create EXE and Create screensaver) to Create menu (also 'Export to' should be Create (PDF/Flash)), since it's a bit hidden now (in Slide Show).
