  1. For some tools the pointer cursor is too small and I sometimes have trouble locating it. I tried changing the cursor theme in control panel but it had no effect, so I'm assuming paint.net is using custom cursor images for these tools. E.g. for the shapes tool, the cursor has a width of exactly 1 pixel, and a white outline of 1 pixel. This being on a gray background makes it almost invisible on high resolution monitors. Even moving it around doesn't help. Example image: https://drive.google.com/file/d/10_Y946jVFY9AkjE0gUhUKxLsna0_Eicg/view?usp=sharing (can you find it?) Is there
  2. I'm using two finger scrolling on a touchpad. When scrolling vertically it works as I would expect (scrolls the canvas). However, when scrolling horizontally, it moves either the cursor itself or the selection. I couldn't figure out when it moves the selection and when it moves the cursor but I've had both happen. I expect it to just scroll the canvas, same as holding shift and scrolling vertically.
  3. Pressing 's' 4 times to get to the magic wand tool is tedious. Could we get separate buttons for each of the selection tools? Maybe two-button combinations like s+2/3/4. Sorry if this has been discussed before, couldn't find anything in search or "Popular feature requests".
  4. I suggest using the Kill Color Keeper plugin. Choose the color picker, choose the 5x5 pixels sampling at the top, click somewhere on the background and run the plugin. Then choose the white color and run the plugin again. This should clear most of the background noise. Now pick the eraser, reduce the hardness at the top to 0 and the opacity to 128, and choose a large brush size. Then you can erase the leftovers manually. Add a black layer at the bottom and you're done. I did this with your first image and I'm attaching what I got. Sadly I don't think you can automate t
  5. I agree with OP. It would be amazing to be able to ctrl+click several different layers and then have any selection transformations/effects apply on all of the selected layers at once. Copy/Paste selection makes it feasible, but this feature would make it trivial and much faster.
  6. Can you give us more details about what you want to do? Would you just like an option to draw/generate a grid on the image? If so, you could use a plugin and I believe this isn't a common use case and it shouldn't be a native feature. If I were using grids, I wouldn't want the grid to be a part of the image but rather act as a guideline only. One way to achieve this is to draw a grid with a plugin, then draw on a layer below the grid and finally delete the grid layer. There are many drawbacks with this solution, for e.g. the grid will cover your drawing and you won't be able to see certai
  7. It's not a big deal but sometimes I need to be precise with my drawings, e.g. move selection exactly 256 pixels to the bottom or rotate exactly 36 degrees clockwise. Guidelines aren't supported yet so what I do now is look at the current coordinates, use a calculator to calculate the new ones, move with the move tool and nudge with the arrow keys when I'm close. An option in the edit menu would be nice.
  8. I don't like using third party plugins to get a better version of a feature that already exists. I would rather the feature improve natively. Plugins are extra work to install, may stop working in the future will always be less efficient. I hope the curves tool ends up somewhere on Rick's todo list, even if near the bottom, I use it a lot.
  9. Here are a few things I would change to improve the look and feel of the Color window: - Have the Secondary color up front while it's selected. - Some of the characters are not in line with their corresponding slider (see image). I would align them, remove the unnecessary colons and make the sliders wider. - Make the transparency slider go from black to transparent to improve clarity. - Use an icon instead of the text '>>' in the More/Less button. I realize there are probably more important things to worry about but I'm assuming these wouldn't take long to implement, so hope
