paint.net 4.0 beta build 5152 is now available in Preview Center Posted February 15, 2014 · Report reply Does Edit -> Paste into New Image (Ctrl + Alt + V) work? Yup, that appears to work just fine for me, no crash. Same with basic Paste or Paste into New Layer. Only by opening the New dialog and then doing something like typing a number into one of the boxes, clicking an up/down arrow, clicking on a dropdown box, or the Cancel button. Curiously, clicking the OK button causes no crash, but successfully creates a new image with the correct dimensions.
