Very useful! Leopard look much better without the messy, transparant menu bar

I don't know if this is related to Leopaque but sometimes but Spotlight bar is now underneath the menubar. You still see the lower end of it and if you open/close a couple of times it eventuallyreturns to the foreground. I don't really care but I got me a little confused when I saw it the first time happen.

Thank God! The "textured" look should be the default menu bar style in 10.5, IMO. Looks so much better.

thanks, that 2.0 looks like what I was hoping for. I was still with an earlier version so I might have missed that feature.
Greetings from the macnemo forum :-)

Gruss zurück - das mit dem Slider kann man evtl. noch optimieren, aber erst kommt noch eine zweite Beta, die einen kleinen Fehler ausmerzt.

Gruss aus Luzern ;-)

Works fine.

Is it possible to get another color like green or blue?

We've not (yet) seen a possibility to do so by just manipulating an original system file.

You purchase and install the OS upgrade, Leopard. It's an OS thing, not an Intel thing.

Grey like the top of windows, with exactly the same gradient. Beautiful !

@ChrisB: Is this the macosxhints plist thing? A wrapper? If yes, you should enable 1 and 0 which supposedly offers the Tiger menu bar.

Both options are available in Leopaque.

0 = Opacity Textured
1 = Opacity White

By the way:

The Tiger menu bar is about 0.62 ;-)

We may implement this (a slider) in v2.0.

Eh? The Tiger menu bar is quite different, with a glossy finish rather than a grey gradient.

The Restore option did not work on my MacBook with 10.5.1. The menu bar returns to its grayish color, but is no longer translucent.
