While Decorator API supports them - it's up to decorator developer to give correct information -, our redrawing code cannot handle rounded edges, yet. Regarding alpha drawing, I don't know for sure you have to ask DW, but, I AFAIK we do not have support for that either :-( ! Sometime in the near future, I hope! > Thanks very much.
