Change Transparency - chances the transparency of the selected picture(s) in the *.TVL file. Customarily the transparency is set by colour of the upper leftmost pixel of the picture. In the standard mode it may not be apparent that the background has been made transparent, due to the fact that the default background colour of the Stock List is black.  However, the background of the Stock List can be altered to check picture transparency. For further information see,  Keyboard Shortcuts.
