Issue with transparent windows after update 0.8

Hallo sir Andrew,

I noticed that with the update 0.8, when I set the “Launch Transparent Window”, now create a white background under the Tabs and the Elements into the transparent window (see the picture). Before the Update was completely transparent.

Is it something wanted?
Best Regards

I think it’s always been this way, no? are you sure it previously showed transparent?

This should be an easy fix but I don’t have time to get to it right now

Thanks for the quickly response Andrew.

Yes, I have multiple Human UI file, and with the 0.7.3v, the Windows are completely trasparent.

Hi Sonny - Try this new version. The tabs will look the same by default but you’ll be able to use “Adjust Element Appearance” to set their background color to transparent. (1.0 MB)

Hey, could it be that this is not working anymore in the latest version?

Hallo Julian,

with the Version works!!


I just checked it and if it’s this version, then it unfortunately does not work … however I tried to reinstall it to make sure I have the latest one and it did of course not work eiter. I attached the file if you could maybe check it and tell me if it’s my machine here or something else … thx! (11.1 KB)


Hallo Julian, not work while you Launch a Transparent Window. You should to use the LaunchWindow component.


Mhm, what do you mean?

I did it exactly like in Andrew’s example above and it does not work for me.
If you tell me I should not use the “Launch Transparent Window” it won’t be transparent at all?

Sry if I don’t get it but, maye you could just briefly upload a working definition, that would be amazing.

all the best,

Yeah, I see that there’s a bug here. I just pushed a fix in version 0.8.4 to the yak package manager — I would install it from there.

Thx Andrew for the fast fix, that did the job!

I have not understood where I can find the new version.

Hi -

On Rhino 6, run the TestPackageManager command. This is a test command and won’t auto-complete. In Rhino 7 this has been promoted to a regular command - PackageManager.
