Need ability to keep a tracing on top of any active window

It would be great if an outline captured by Screen TP would remain on top of whatever window is behind it, WHILE window or application remained active. As I try to use the outline to input a shape the active application below it become active, and the traced outline goes to the background, necessitating an Alt-tab to get the traced outline to show up again over top of the application I'm using this with. Is there a way to have a traced image remain on top, while retaining interactivity with the applicaiton window underneath it? This would be super great for my needs.

Thanks,
Noel

A good suggestion Noel, we will keep this in mind for the next version.

I, too, would love this program for gridded transparent graph paper that stays on top of another, different Windows application running underneath. I'd love to work with the underneath program with the graph paper on top.

This helps me with designing graphics for crochet/knitting programs that I use and write patterns for.

Thanks.

We did have a version of this in development, but have been busy with other projects. At some point we will get back to it I hope!

If I understand your post correctly then I would suggest

this free little applet will make any window(s) translucent so you can use an application 'below' it while looking at its contents.
