I love the product, and use a dedicated window with a desktop image that I like see underneath. I use the transparency feature in Iterm and If this could be applied to Pathfind, it would be ideal. Any chance you could add transparency as a feature? or is there a third party plugin that could accomplish this?

    Currently, it's not possible, Greg. Besides Terminal apps and maybe Adium, I don't know of any other app which lets you do this. Try to suggest it at the Feedback Page.

    Thank you Damazio.   I believe "geektook" also works this way.  My understanding is that a transparency feature can be enabled in a cocoa app.

    Yeah but GeekTool (I prefer Nerdtool) is a desktop customizing app which let you lay a set of transparent panels to be viewed in the background (when you hit the Show Desktop hotkey). You don't see many windowed apps have this feature even if it can be enabled in the code.
