Utility that removes icon text box

Burseg has made some fantastic wallpapers for use under P96 but they are spoilt when the icons have ugly coloured boxes surrounding their text.

Any stand alone utility/hack to remove these boxes under workbench 3?

I know something does the job as I've seen screenshots containing the desired effect, although it could be part of some larger utilility I haven't installed and don't like using (like MCP).

You can do that from workbench preferences. It's not like windoz

LOL! Thanks Burseg! Goes to show your never too old to learn.

All these years of using workbench and I NEVER realised that option was there! Then again, I never really used wallpapers on my setups so I had no reason to explore. Probably read that in the manual 12 years ago or something and completely forgot.

And to think I went to the trouble of editing your last wallpaper to get around the problem. Yes I think I've been using Winows 9x for too long with its text box limitation. Long live workbench!

Right, time to update.

You can also use TitleShadow from the aminet (ftp://de.aminet.net/pub/aminet/util/...itleshadow.lha), which will add either a 1 pixel outline or a drop shadow around the text in the current text background colour.

EDIT: Ack, no it won't. It adds the effect to the text in the titlebar of all windows. I've got this mixed up with Scalos and Directory Opus Magellan II, both of which alter the icon text as specified above.
