  1. Do you perhaps remember what version you upgraded from and assuming you upgraded to the latest (4.1.6)? Store version? Was it through the in-app upgrade or some other method? Could give some context into what happened and maybe others could figure it out.
  2. Those "puzzle symbols" meant those adjustment tools were plugins. I don't know if plugins being removed after an upgrade is normal behavior or not but those appear to be from BoltBait's plugin pack, you can try downloading and reinstalling his plugin pack.
  3. In regards to the "Plugin Errors" always being displayed in the Settings window now even when there are no errors, possibly you could give visual cues when there is something to look at and when there isn't? When I see a warning triangle there I instinctively want to check it out every time I open Settings even when there is nothing wrong. Potentially you could show the plugin icon without the warning triangle when things are fine or with a green check mark, display the warning triangle when there is interesting output to look at?
  4. Realized this should probably be a new thread from comment above.
  5. Edit: Misinterpreted the question. It seems like it would be handy to have a 'Lock' feature on a selection so that it doesn't disappear right after deleting.
  6. I am able to reproduce this by resizing the window from the bottom and dragging it all the way to the top. It then becomes uninteractable and even difficult to close. There may be ways it can be prevented, however there is some Windows magic you can do to fix it! It seems you are on Windows 10 which is good. Shift + Right click on Paint.NET in the taskbar and select Size. Then your cursor will appear on the window with the arrow cursor. Then click, hold, and drag down.
  7. Paint.NET doesn't have any fonts of it's own, it uses the font's currently installed to Windows, default and ones you've downloaded and installed from the internet. Here's a resource for default Windows fonts: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_typefaces_included_with_Microsoft_Windows
  8. This advice isn't just for Paint.NET, whenever you are working on something in any program, make sure to save your progress as often as possible because you will lose your work to unexpected events like that.
  9. BoltBait's Fill from Clipboard plugin does the trick. Copy your fill pattern. Select all then use the plugin selecting the desired tiling option.
  10. I don't think the video codecs would be relevant for an image editor. The image extensions you have listed would be the ones to use: HEIF, RAW, WebP. As for plugins already existing, there are already user-made plugins for RAW and WebP that you can use for both classic and Windows Store versions: RAW WebP Though, I have no idea how easy or possible it would be use those Windows Store items and could still be an option. However, how many image extensions are available in the store? If there are enough it may make sense to try and support them.
  11. Why would someone lax security just because it's not critical? Three tries I think is a fairly standard practice for sites regardless of the content/purpose. The problem appears to be that you don't remember your login details, not an issue with the forum login system. The login system here isn't much different from others on other social platforms, except lacking something like 2FA of course. To solve the actual issue here, I think you should take advantage of the username and password saving feature in Chrome (if that's what you're using) or store your login details in a place that you're most comfortable with. Some examples to look at are 1password, lastpass, or if you don't trust online mediums, a local-offline tool keepass. Or just write them down on paper/notecards. However, when trying to log in with just my email it does not appear to work as you've said. Only the username appears to work. It's probably something to be brought up to the forum software InvisionCommunity which this is based off of.
  12. This is definitely possible using pyrochild's Trail plugin and a little bit of work. 1. Make sure your text is on a second layer (Layer 3 in photo) surrounded by transparency. 2. Duplicate that layer of text (Layer 2 in photo). 3. Use the Trail plugin with fade-out disabled, max distance (500 unfortunately but should be enough), and spacing of 1. 4. Use magic wand to select your trailed text and fill using the color of choice... done! Result:
  13. There also appears to be the DataContractJsonSerializer also built into the .NET Framework.
