follow up on to keep a tracing on top of any active window

Hi, like Noel and Terryl who already posted this request, I would like very much to have STP active while I design a pattern. I tried exporting the traced copy as DXF file into the design programme I'm using but it won't accept it. The only solution for me is to have the traced copy of STP on top of the drawing programme. I'm not successful because STP keeps on disappearing!!!

Are you making progress on the option to keep STP active while another application is in use? If this works, I will spead the good news to members of my creative club.

Thank you so much !!!

Sorry - I found the request from Neol on the message board.

You're looking to have the STP clicks go through the tracing paper to the application underneath. We did look into this a while back and unfortunatly it's not really very straightforward to accomplish. We're currently focussed on other things, but we'll certainly keep it in mind for the future.

Not go through STP but stay (does not disappear) from the screen so it can be copied by another drawing application.

By the way, does the Help button gets activated only after unlocking the programme?

Thank you for your help.

I see, well thanks for the suggestion, we'll certianly keep it in mind.

Help should work, it just goes to the website page though.

Just an idea - since STP has the buttons show / hide, is it possible to add "freeze"? That way the "traced image" stays on top of any drawing application?

Keep up the good work!!!!!

Right that's actually what I thought you originally meant! Certainly a good idea.

Hi, is there any news or work in progress on the Screen Tracing Paper to make it stay on top of any other application?  Best wishes.
