Sometimes when you are cranking code you find yourself in a situation where IntelliSense is covering up some code you want to see:

You can easily make it temporarily opaque by pressing and holding the CTRL key:

This way you don't have to completely get rid of IntelliSense, see the code, then bring IntelliSense back.  Just press the CTRL key, get the information you need, and move on.

    This is a handy feature, why not include it in the tools/options setting items is it always is transparent and at the level and colors we want?  Ore ever allow an offset, say you wanted intelligence on a different monitor, or at the balloon section part of the main window?  If on a different windows and the windows as the object browser open as well then pipe the intellisence into the object browser.  Now that there would be glorious!

    Now that would be nifty!
