There is the possibility to adjust opacity in the
background color chooser. But this has no effect. It
would be great, if you could support translucent notes!

    Yes, you are correct. :) My plan is for the next version
    to include transparency -- I'm working on it now.

    Well, there are two issues here; one is a bug about opacity
    control when xpad does not support transparency, the other
    is a feature request for transparency.

    Neither are getting fixed soon. I've looked into getting
    transparency and it is just ugly. I don't really want to
    open that can of worms until X can properly support it.

    As for the opacity control, I'm not sure why it shows up.
    The GTK+ API call to remove it is present, and it has the
    effect of making the control useless, but it does not remove
    it. I'm not sure what else I can do, as this seems to be a
    GTK+ bug.

    So, marking this as 'Later' and getting to the feature
    request whenever X gets its act together or I find a slick
    way to offer transparency.
