*shudders* Nope. It looks quite hideous. But...hmmm....are there customization options for said backdrop? Like, changing the colour? If not, I want them. And the option for it to be a picture would be good. And maybe if it showed a slideshow of randomly chosen frames in your animation so far! That would be SO cool. But this isn't a suggestion thread, so I better be quiet...

EDIT: Okay so the colour is changeable. But my other two opinions must be heard! Oh right, not a suggestion thread...forgot....

No, it is available in View>show backdrop, it is the coloured background behind all the windows.

Right - the main purpose is to let you concentrate on your animation without other visual distractions, but I guess it could also be used to present your animation to someone else and have THEM focus on your animation and not your desktop. *:-)*

No, Lol.

It's a one coloured backdrop that goes BEHIND the stykz windows and covers your desktop so you are less distracted..
