hello everyone. I'm new as of today. I just have a question about transparency. What do you do if you don't have transparency on your list of skins? I went down the whole list and transparency is not one of them. How can I add it on?

You should start by advising which version of Kodi you are running , on what hardware.

AFTV2+SPMC+Quartz+OSMC Remote

edit: it appears that some of them do save the view...but i'd have to go through and change the view for each page manually. i see it's stored in viewmodes.db, but i'd have to go change every one manually (hundreds)...

yup, it's exactly like that.
skins need to define a default view (fanart in Transparency!), so every page you open will initially be in fanart view.
if you change it, xbmc will save your preference.

Where is this option?
I can only see in skin settings\view options\fanart.
I want to make the default view of all movies\add-ons as "thumbnail" and not "fanart".

you can only change it in the side menu of the music / video library. (and you'll need to do it for every window/section)

Always read the Kodi online-manual, FAQ and search the forum before posting.

Hi Ronnie,

i really like Transparency skin but i have two questions if i may ask.

1.Where from can i add to favourites?I have to revert to the original skin to set them and then back to transparency

2.I have created some custom video nodes with library node editor add on .How can i put them to favorites or as main buttons in the home screen?

Thank you for your time reading this.

Regards,
the_observer.

adding items to favourites works the same in all skins, through the context menu.

Thanks.

Sad Can you tell me if it's a drawback of the skin or the Kodi program?

it's how kodi works. skins don't have any influence on this.
