When converting some icons using PMView 3.3 in preparation for editing them, I realized that PMView appears to assign the background (transparent) portion the colour of index 0 on the pallette. This causes problems especially if the index 0 color is used in the edges of the icon, as the border of the icon is assimilated into the background. This is true in e.g. the standard OS/2 folder icons.

If the transparent background could be assigned a different color on export, or would always remain e.g. 000, the problem would be circumventable by manipulating the pallette.

To circumvent the problem I filled in the transparent portions of the icons with an otherwise unused color with the icon editor before converting them with PMView. However, this is far from an ideal solution.

PMView currently does not save the alpha channel. This would resolve the issue you are seeing and will be added in a future release of PMView.
