I'm trying to find a widget editor that will load a transparent gif or png and edit a clock face over it. Every time I try this in your editor it puts a black background on my widget. As a new and admittedly ignorant user of this app, I have no clue how to set a floating transparent custom background or if it's even possible. Help please?

You need to add a kwgt widget in your launcher, when you tap in it you need to add an empty widget. To add an empty widget in Kwgt, when you tap in the widget and Kwgt is open you need to tap in the icon of a sheet with a folded corner that is in the top right of the editor, this is going to add an empty widget to the editor without any background in it.👍
