ColorKey enhancement

Hi,

What would make this feature really useful is to have an option to set the transparency level for the color it replaces rather then just have it 100% transparent. This would allow cool transparency settings that mimic the OSX terminal for example.

It would also be really nice to have the option to not "click-through" the transparency color. i.e. I still want the window to be able to select text, o/w it makes it kind of useless for anything with text as you cannot select it.

Thanks!

I'll see if this is possible

I don't think this is possible. When the background is completely transparent, Windows treats it as truly transparent and let you click-through it. But I will see if your first suggestion is possible to implement and this will automatically solve the second issue, because you could set the transparency of that color to say 99% instead of 100% and thus it won't be click-through. But i'm not sure if it's possible.
