  1. Thanks but no. My issue is that it intermittently greys out the button, some days, like today, I can acquire OK, but other days it's greyed out. Same Printer scanner, switched on for a good few minutes before trying to scan, same laptop, it just comes & goes. As I stated in original post, even when Paint.net states there's "no scanner, other programs CAN access the scanner, it's really weird
  2. Have managed to scan most of the time, but occasionally the Acquire | scanner button is greyed out. Printer/scanner is Canon MG series, I can ALWAYS print to the printer, and if I try another graphics program, THAT program can see the scanner even if Paint.NET can't. Even turning paint.net off then on again doesn't resolve the issue, but probably another day it will work as usual. Any suggestions where to look
  3. When saving image as jpg the save preview pane is blank, then get, Application version: paint.net 4.2.5 System.IO.IOException: The file exists. at System.IO.__Error.WinIOError(Int32 errorCode, String maybeFullPath) at System.IO.Path.InternalGetTempFileName(Boolean checkHost) at PaintDotNet.Dialogs.SaveConfigDialog.<>c__DisplayClass48_0.<UpdatePreviewAsync>b__0() in D:\src\pdn\src\PaintDotNet\Dialogs\SaveConfigDialog.cs:line 569 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 If I continue it does save the file anyway (as file didn't exist already despite the message), but it's a bit worrying as you need to check each file to make sure they're OK
  4. Would it be possible to remember different locations for the differing picture formats In theory this would just require some extra keys in the Registry jpg d:\pix\paint\jpg\ png d:\pix\paint\png\ bmp d:\pix\paint\bmp\ Thanks
  5. As another user who needs to save in jpg regularly and has often had to reopen the png & then 're-saveas jpg', could a customising feature be considered for the button bar, to offer an "Add Button(s)" that we can configure. The we could add our own "File.Save.As.jpg" as a button or similar?
  6. It's OK, I worked out that the Expand Canvas "sort of" does what I want, the nice thing about the Micrographix solution was that you could expand all 4 edges by differing amounts, whereas the Paint.Net solution old extends the Right & bottom edge
  7. IS it possible to use this feature to match the "expand image" feature in Micrographix's Picture Publisher 10 where you can "add" some additional blank cells to an image I want to add / paste an image alongside an existing image so the final result is as if the two were stuck with selotape
