Can I get transparency in full screen mode in iTerm?
Lion-style fullscreen windows in Preferences -> General tab.
Works for iTerm2 Build 2.1.1 on OSX 10.9.5.
No, if you change transparency in a full-screen iTerm window, it only takes affect when you leave full screen. The idea of the full screen mode is to let you focus on the work at hand in a single terminal.
On Tiger, when I have iTerm open full screen and I open a new tab, the new tab is transparent--so it's possible. It reverts back to opaque if you minimize and re-full screen it, though. However, I agree with jtimberman; I find it annoying to have a full-screen transparent window.
There's a solution but it's a bit of a hack :
- Try using Afloat to setup the transparency of the window.
