  3. Is it possible to prevent the layer names from being changed in the archive? For example, in my first layer is "01". When I save it into an archive, I would like to keep it as "01", instead of "L3,R1,C1,01,visible,normal,255".
  4. @LionsDragon's OK to feel a glut of emotions/ thoughts even if they're bad; just the same as feeling grief ... and on the flip side it's OK not to feel anything at all. I was vilified by my siblings for feeling nothing at all when my father died. Just a shrug of the shoulder. Remember you're entitled to feel and think whatever you want. Be it grief and sadness or total detachment. Nobody can judge. Feel what's right for you Speaking personally I've found the hardest thing is there's no answers for past behaviour. <hug>
  5. Okay, looks like I broke the plugin. I'll fix it for the next update -- thanks
  6. I have converted some Windows True Type font files (*.TTF) to Windows Bitmap files (*.BMP). The resulting bitmap fonts are for a printing system. Once the font is converted to a bitmap, I have to edit the various characters to make sure they meet the printer's specifications, so some of the characters may need to be adjusted up/down/left/right or resized slightly so that they all line up correctly. I've been doing this for years with and it works great, but now I have to make a font that is 1024 pixels tall, which results in the bitmap being 69707 pixels wide. Because of the limitation of, I am unable to edit any part of the image from 65536 to 69707. I tried attaching this bitmap font but the file (even zipped up) is larger than the 256 kB attachment limit. Also, I save the bitmap fonts using the "Bitmap (Low color)" plugin (LowColor.dll). I have never had any problems saving bitmaps using this plugin. But, now that I've installed version 4.2 (4.200.7111.39790), it throws this exception when attempting to generate the preview: Application version: 4.2 (β 4.200.7111.39790) System.ArgumentException: destination palette has 256 entries, source has 16 at PaintDotNet.Drawing.ColorPaletteUtil.UpdatePalette(ColorPalette gdipPalette, IReadOnlyList`1 newEntries) in D:\src\pdn\src\Core\Drawing\ColorPaletteUtil.cs:line 44 at PaintDotNet.FileType.Quantize(Surface quantizeMe, Int32 ditherAmount, Int32 maxColors, Boolean enableTransparency, ProgressEventHandler progressCallback) in D:\src\pdn\src\Data\FileType.cs:line 172 at LowColor.LowColorFileTypeFactory.createLowColor(Surface PDNSurface, Double ImageDPIX, Double ImageDPIY, Int32 CustomCols, String colorMode, Int32 DitherLevel, Int32 TransparencyLevel, Boolean UseTransparency, ProgressEventHandler updateProgress, PropertyBasedFileType callingClass, Boolean Always8Bit) at LowColor.BMPSave.OnSaveT(Document input, Stream output, PropertyBasedSaveConfigToken token, Surface scratchSurface, ProgressEventHandler progressCallback) at PaintDotNet.FileType.Save(Document input, Stream output, SaveConfigToken token, Surface scratchSurface, ProgressEventHandler callback, Boolean rememberToken) in D:\src\pdn\src\Data\FileType.cs:line 276 at PaintDotNet.Dialogs.SaveConfigDialog.<>c__DisplayClass48_0.<UpdatePreviewAsync>b__0() in D:\src\pdn\src\PaintDotNet\Dialogs\SaveConfigDialog.cs:line 604 at System.Threading.Tasks.Task.Execute() --- End of stack trace from previous location where exception was thrown --- at System.Runtime.ExceptionServices.ExceptionDispatchInfo.Throw() at System.Runtime.CompilerServices.TaskAwaiter.HandleNonSuccessAndDebuggerNotification(Task task) at PaintDotNet.Dialogs.SaveConfigDialog.<UpdatePreviewAsync>d__48.MoveNext() in D:\src\pdn\src\PaintDotNet\Dialogs\SaveConfigDialog.cs:line 623
  7. *Ponders* What am I supposed to feel upon learning that my permanently-estranged father has died?
  8. What type of images are you working with? It'd be helpful to know the sizes, and what kind of stuff you're doing. Samples images help too, if you're willing to share.
  9. Which version of Windows are you using?
  10. I installed version 4.2 (4.200.7111.39790) and it doesn't support resizing bitmaps larger than 65535 in either direction or moving a selected area over the 65535 boundary. I also noticed that it won't allow filling a selected area or creating any shape, line or curve across the 65535 boundary. Hopefully support for larger bitmaps will be added in a future release as time permits. Thanks.
  11. I use Google Chrome (latest version), and pretty much any image with transparency gets affected, like this one for example When i click 'Open image in a new tab' and then click 'Copy image' on it and paste it into PDN, it becomes this I went back to version 4.1.6 to see if it was just an issue with the beta, and when i did, pasting that same image into PDN worked just fine On another note; If i copy an image i already have open in PDN that has transparency, and paste that either as a new layer or a new file, it'll keep it's transparency, so it just seems to be an issue with copying image data from outside sources, such as a web browser Also, saving a transparent image from my browser and then opening it in PDN keeps the transparency, so it's only to do with copying the image
  12. Also, the red green blue dots are a known issue that's being worked on
  13. @Masterlegodude, I'll need more information ... Which web browser? I'll need a link to a specific image that now loses its transparency. Please make sure you're very specific with your error reports.
  14. Yesterday
  15. I'm sorry if these have been reported already, but since opting into the 4.2 beta versions, transparent images copied from my web browser into PDN lose their transparency, and pasting a screen capture into PDN distorts the image with a slight wrap-around/tiling effect and a red, green, and blue pixel appear on the bottom left of the pasted image I've made an image showing the former issue
  16. I read that as, "In the other dimension," and wondered what you were doing.... Don't mind me.
  17. Support for this is slowly improving over time. The beta of 4.2 makes this a lot better in the areas of performance, and also by making it possible to load/save enormous images in common formats like PNG and TIFF. (JPEG still seems like it can't go that large though) And yes you can open images larger than >65535 pixels on either dimension, but it's not really tested or supported yet. Internally this is just the max that things are really allowed to go up to so far, but there's no check when loading an image.
  18. Quite so Welshy. It's still there.... REF:
  19. My partner has the same pathological fear of creepy-crawlies 🕷️. A scream usually brings me running. I pick them up in my hands and gently remove them while she shudders.
  20. If you are not using the new beta build of version 4.2, try that and report back.
  21. I am able to load bitmaps that are wider than 65535 pixels, but when I try to move a selected part of the image where the selection crosses the 65535 boundary, only the portion of the image under the 65535 boundary is moved. I also noticed that I cannot resize a bitmap larger than 65535 in either direction. Are there any plans for adding more support for bitmaps wider than 65535 pixels?
  22. Okay I think I figured out the final answer on what you need to install from the Store to make sure HEIC works: First, try to save and/or open an HEIC using regular Paint. If that works, you're done. If not, proceed to step 2. Create a System Restore point. I just had a bad experience where HEIC was completely broken and this was the only way I got it back again. So please, I recommend doing it. Install HEIF Image Extensions. This is probably already installed. It's free. Install HEVC Video Extensions from Device Manufacturer. Also free, and might already be installed. However, if you don't have the hardware support -- and it's completely unclear what that means or requires, as my old Surface Pro 3 with a Core i5-4300U has this and it works -- you may need to purchase for $1 the simpler named HEVC Video Extensions. The next PDN 4.2 build should then be able to load and save HEIC files. Also, this works on Windows 10 v1809. It doesn't require v1903. I haven't tested yet if it works on v1803, but that's next ...
  23. Hehehehe I just don't trust anything with so many legs and eyes ... I forget how many chainsaw brake casings I've had to replace after walking through a spiders web early morning and my saw, fuel /oil combi can and foodbag have gone for a flight whilst I scrabbled at my face. Totally irrational but I'm glad I'm not the only one Wimps United
  24. This was made using @null54's PSD Filter Plugin with an 8bf filter called "Mehdi - Julia World 1.1 and also I used Trail Blur by @MJW for the background I hope you like it fellow PDNers
  25. Why so worried? They don't each much...
  26. I've been in some bad situations in life but I've ever been only scared of those things. I'm not too proud to admit I've stood on the sofa waiting for my wife to rescue me. Shivers all over me at the thought of flying ones.
