Title text transparent background fail

Time-Lapse Tool - Version 2.4.6666
Hi there,
The transparent background setting for title text is not working. Selecting a transparent background during editing looks okay, but when a trial run of the video or a full export is created, the background reverts to white. Foreground font style and colour selections are okay and selecting a solid colour for the background is also okay. It's just the transparent selection that is not working. This appears to be a bug.
Has anybody else experienced this issue?

The dev team confirmed the bug with transparent background. They are working on the fix.

The fix will be available in next build.

Unfortunately, previously saved projects do not include transparency information, so you need to change colors manually.

Changing the colours manually achieves nothing (and where do you get to change them automatically anyway?).
The issue is that setting transparency as the background for the title text is ignored and reverts to white.
Any idea when the next build will be release?

The new version with fix is not able to load transparency automatically for an existing project. This is referred by "manually" term.

Update should be available. You can use Check Update Now button in program settings dialog.

Hi there,
Thanks for clarifying your meaning of automatic.
I confirm the update has resolved the issue with transparent title text.
The setting is now persistent via manual and automatic configuration (restored from a saved project).
Thanks for your rapid response and support.
