Translucency acting weird on startup

Steps to reproduce

  1. Navigate through the settings to Plugins > Translucent Window.
  2. Enable the setting.
  3. Restart Obsidian.

Expected result

Opening to a translucent window upon startup showing a heavily blurred image of what’s behind the app window.

Actual result

Window is a solid color, and takes up to three minimizes to make the translucency actually enable.


  • Operating system: Windows 10, 64x
  • Obsidian version: v0.9.2

Additional information

This problem also occurs with or without Custom CSS enabled, and persists after uninstalling and reinstalling Obsidian. This also happens regardless of external modifications such as Volcano.
