This tip comes from Phil otherwise known as @civissmith on the interwebs.
Often times you have to swap between screens, I usually use alt/tab or some combination of swapping between document/editor in order to read and update. A neat tip Phil alluded to was that if you set your command line to semi transparent, you can still read any commands or notes while typing your code or commands over. This is a great tip as it can save time on having to constantly swap between (possibly losing your train of thought).
Thanks Phil and any other tips you pass along I'll be happy to post!
