paint.net 4.0 beta build 5278

23 posts in this topic

The fifth beta build for paint.net 4.0 is now available! Things are going very well: I only had to fix bugs that I introduced in the last update :)

 

To install, you can either 1) use the built-in updater from a previous 4.0 build, or 2) use the built-in updater from v3.5.11 if you have "Also check for pre-release (beta) builds", or 3) download it directly at http://www.getpaint.net/files/zip/preview/paint.net.4.0.5278.37579.install.zip

 

Changes since the last beta build:

  • Significantly improved performance of the Ellipse shape
  • Fixed the selection outline being drawn in the wrong location when zoomed in
  • Fixed a glitch in the Line/Curve tool
  • Fixed a rendering glitch and crash in the Move Selected Pixels tool
  • Fixed a crash when attempting to draw a shape with zero width and/or zero height
  • Updated installer to use .NET 4.5.2
  • Fixed a problem that was preventing the installer from working with certain McAfee antivirus configurations (MsiOpenDatabaseW error 110)
  • New language: Persian
  • New language: Danish

Enjoy!

Just as I posted this the thread got closed due to new build release so I am migrating it to here since it still occurs in the newest patch..

Oh and thank you for the quick fix for the selection bug.. that one was annoying.

 

QUOTE:

I am not 100% sure, but this might be a bug:

 

When I open up the window to resize my image and type in a number, the mouse cursor disappears(which is right) but when you move you mouse it is still invisible, unless you hover over the resize-window. Ehm.. not sure how to explain it better... basically the mouse disappears and does not appear when moved but when hovering over the option-window area. Let me know if this was unclear. I'm gonna try this with images next time xD

Oh and (This is not a feature request....)  but I am just saying it would me much appreciated if we could use math inside numeric text box... like for ex: width is 236 and you want to make the image half its size. You could just type 236/2 and PEW 118 appears. This actively promotes people getting dumber.. but hey.. not everyone can be a genius  :P

 

 

This is Paint.NET 4.0-wide Bug for me:

When clicking very fast with some Tools (Example: Brush or Eraser) i get a pixelated Image next to the Mouse.

 

Picture:

I get this every time.

The mouse disappearing is just the way Windows works.

 

I'm not adding maths.

 

The cursor is just a Windows bug since Vista.

I'm trying to build an effect with CodeLab and I'm getting the following error:

 

'PaintDotNet.UserBlendOps.GetBlendOpFriendlyName(System.Type)' is obsolete: 'Do not use this method.'

Can you please enable use of this method?

CodeLab uses it to allow user selected blend ops for effects.

Hidden Content: CodeLab generates the following code

If it is impossible to have it return the localized blend mode names, English would be fine.

1.Ok. let's try this way:

 

pic 1

-open up resizing window.

-mooe the mouse out of the resizing window area.

 

pic 2

-type anything into the field.

-the cursor disappears.

 

what should hapen:

-you move the mouse and the cursor appears again

 

what happens in the current build:

pic 3

-the mouse only appears again if you move to the resizing window area(marked red)

 

I think its a bug because the other option "canvas resize" is not behaving like this.

 

2. that's a pity.

 

3. ok.

It is, actually :( I had this working in an older build and it broke a ton of other stuff. It will not be fixed for 4.0.

You can not change a line into a bezier curve by right clicking the control nubs any more?

No. Use the toolbar to choose between spline and bezier. You can also switch between them whenever you want.

By the way, is there any way to switch to a straight line again, like a reset for the knobs?  Or could there be a type like Bezier and spline, in which you can pull the outer ends and the middle two knows are hidden?

Copying a 200x63 image from Word 2013 to paste into Paint.net and it thinks it is 313x98.

MS Paint is picking up the correct size.

Hello!

In the previous topic, I asked the question

2.When working with the tool "Move Selected Pixels", while moving the selected area(dotted line) disappears. Is it a bug?

In version 3.5.11, the dotted line does not disappear during the move.

http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/28562-paintnet-40-beta-build-5268/#entry410444

 

I understood why the dotted line disappears while moving the selected area.

I moved the selected area using the keyboard keys "Up, Down, Left, Right".

So, when you move the selected area using the keyboard keys "Up, Down, Left, Right" dotted line disappears for half a second!

 
Сheck for yourself:

 paint.net 4.0 beta build 5278

 1. Select the tool "Rectangle Select"

 2. Select any area on canvas

 3. Select the tool "Move Selected Pixels"

 4. Move the selected area using the keyboard keys "Up / Down / Left / Right"

 5. Thereafter, the dotted line disappears for half a second - I think it's a bug

 

 Paint.NET 3.5.11 (Final Release build 4977.23448)

 1. Select the tool "Rectangle Select"

 2. Select any area on canvas

 3. Select the tool "Move Selected Pixels"

 4. Move the selected area using the keyboard keys "Up / Down / Left / Right"

 5. Thereafter, the dotted line disappears, but instantly appears. - So it must be in the version "paint.net 4.0 beta build 5278"

 

...

 
So, if in the version "4.0" to move the selected area to several pixels, holding a key is pressed, the dotted line disappears during movement. Also note that, if you move a selected area with the mouse, the dotted line is drawn instantly.

Hello

I am having a problem with version "4.0" beta build 5278. When I first downloaded and installed it every thing was working fine. Then after a few days I noticed when I open it, it opens and then tells me that paint net is not responding for a few seconds then flashes and works again. But now when I try to "save as" my work my whole computer freezes up to the point I have to power off and restart the computer again. This does not happen with any other program I use except Paint. Net. Could this be a bug?

2.When working with the tool "Move Selected Pixels", while moving the selected area(dotted line) disappears. Is it a bug?

In version 3.5.11, the dotted line does not disappear during the move.

...

 

Compare this to how it work in 3.5: if you held down the arrow key, you'd get 1 history item per pixel. Yuck!

 

When you use the keyboard to move the selection in 4.0, it does something called debouncing. It waits for you to stop pressing the arrow key for a moment (1/2 second or so, IIRC) before it emits the history item which then tracks the whole thing. The selection outline's visibility is tied to whether or not things are currently being edited or not, and that includes this "debouncing moment."

 

This is not a bug.
