TOPIC: desktop doesn't refresh leaving ghost window

desktop doesn't refresh leaving ghost window 2 Years, 11 Months ago  
I'm having odd behavior and curious if anyone else has seen it. I have 5 calendars stacked top to bottom on the right side of my desktop. Their position in the general options is on the desktop. Occasionally when I close or minimize a window that was over the calendars, there's a ghost of the original window where it covered the calendars. The ghost is only where it overlapped the calendars, not the entire desktop. Sometimes it's not a ghost of the original window but a hole where it overlapped (i.e. I see a the desktop where it overlapped looking like there's a bite out of the calendars). I noticed this mostly with Firefox. Previously when launching Rainlendar, I'd see a white background behind my calendars instead of being transparent, but that has gone away by upgrading Rainlendar to the latest version. Whenever any of these problems happen, I can refresh the desktop to fix the problem. I've upgraded my video driver and that hasn't had any impact. I'm running Windows 7 64 bit. I can't figure it out if it's a Rainlendar problem or Windows. I have no other refresh problems. It's only with Rainlendar. Has anyone else seen this problem?

Make sure you are not using the "copy" transparency type (Options->Advanced->Transparency type). It will cause Rainlendar to take a copy of anything that is currently on the desktop and use it as its background image. You should be using the "native" type instead.

My settings was already set to Native for the transparency type. If you have any other suggestions, I'd appreciate it. I'm attaching two screen shots. There's a third scenario, but it hasn't happened in a while.

This is the last example. A Firefox window that was closed leaves a ghost image only over the calendar.
