Transparent ArcMap Display Relative To Other Software Products

    Allow the display window of ArcMap to be transparent from 0% (which it is now) up to 100%.  That way we can have an image displayed from another software product (Google Maps or any image viewer) "behind" ArcMap and see that image with our feature layers overlaying the background image.  (Those feature layers would employ the chosen transparency percentage.) 

    That capability would allow us to quickly orient our features with respect to the background image, then digitize a feature from something we see in the background image without having to capture, add, and register an image into ArcMap.
