Hello Pierre, please, can you add transparency for background color or font shadowing for better readability? (Options: Options/View/Fulscreen/Show information/Text settings)

I am sorry for duplicity, but my searching for any previous suggestion for this problem was unsuccessful. On other side it is good to remind this problem again after more than 3 years.

+1 Currently it's really hard to read without background and a non-transparent background doesn't look that nice.

We vote here for adding transparency for background color or font shadowing for better readability of text information in fullscreen mode...

Hello Pierre, may I ask you:
Is this hard to implemented or it only have not priority on your todo list?

I'm waiting for a similar feature more than 3 years, so it's probably not easy to implement, but also the good news. :)

Opacity must be only on brackground color? Or on background color & text?
XnViewMP make opacity on background color & text for example...
