Good afternoon, Takuya.
I really like the new feature, acrylic translucent background for Windows.
Thank you for releasing the feature.

Hi Akira,

Thank you for the report.
That’s weird.
I tried to reproduce it by following the given reproduction steps but couldn’t.
It properly restored the window with the translucent effect enabled. :thinking:

Hi Takuya,

Thank you for the reply.
Actually I tried to reproduce the issue. But now Inkdrop works perfect on my computer as well.
I will let you know if I can reproduce the issue again. :slightly_smiling_face:


I got it reproduced.
I think it happens when I connect an external monitor with extended projection,
in a situation like below.

The steps for reproduction is as follows:

Do you mean the issue happens on the secondary screen?
Does it also happen on the primary screen when connected with an external monitor?

It is a bit difficult explain, but let me try.
I configure an external monitor to be primary screen.
So when an external monitor is connected, external monitor becomes primary screen.
And it happens on the primary screen (external monitor).

Now, I am out without an external monitor. I will confirm if it happens on the secondary screen (internal monitor) as well.

Let’s make it simple.
Can you try connecting with the external monitor as a secondary monitor? Then, check if the issue happens on either or both monitors.

Umm, there seems to be another condition for reproducing the issue.
Now, it does not occur in any situation. Let me look into it further.

Okay, let me know if you found how to reproduce it.
