  1. There is a distinction between the standard free 'program' as he put it and the Windows Store 'app'. The issue here is about correctly installing plugins when using the Windows Store version. It is clear he is using the Windows Store 'app' version by the WindowsApps folder in the install path he gave. @Pit The link that @toe_head2001 provided gives the correct instructions but it doesn't sound like you correctly solved the problem. Trying to install to the Program Files or WindowsApps locations when using the Windows Store version will not work and you won't see any plugins you attempt to install. You need to create folders in your My Documents as the link states and place your plugins there to correctly use plugins with the Windows Store version.
  2. I wonder then if Bundled could be a new status type for the index but if there are only two that apply it might not seem worth it and just keep them labeled active. Though that depends on if more could be bundled in the future. I do agree now that it is a gray area and doesn't really apply as integrated.
  3. Should WebP Filetype plugin be labeled as integrated now or on the next index update? I recently updated and receive this message in the plugin errors output. I also see now it was noted in the 4.2.5 release notes too.
  4. If you go into your Windows Update history, are you able to provide the specific "KB"s that were installed right before the issue occured? Otherwise, have you tried reinstalling Paint.NET?
  5. Performance Update I've improved the speed and performance, upgraded jquery and bootstrap libraries, and made some minor UI fixes again with recent changes. When loading and using the app, there should be a noticeable difference. What makes it faster? Instead of toggling the visibility of individual elements on the page, it is now building the html in a JS variable and replacing the entire list html. This way the browser does less work overall. Comparing Chrome performance results, scripting and rendering time has been halved. Comparing Firefox performance results, Layout & DOM time/cost has been halved.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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?
  9. Realized this should probably be a new thread from comment above.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. BoltBait's Fill from Clipboard plugin does the trick. Copy your fill pattern. Select all then use the plugin selecting the desired tiling option.
