Failed installation of .NET 5
My main use of Paint.NET is taking numerous screen grabs and hacking them all together to produce a new image for use in my own software. This leaves me with 1 image saved and sometimes 10, 20 30 or more unsaved images that I don't want. To tidy up ready to do more work, I like to close all the images, but closing 30 unsaved images individually (with a confirmation for each) is pretty slow. So I usually close/reopen Paint.NET. It would be nice to have a Close All option on the menu that acts the same as when closing the application (show the dialogue of all unsaved images and allow confirmation) to avoid this. I know this is only a small time saver, but I would presume it is a fairly trivial task to implement. Any chance of this being considered?
I'm using Paint.NET to create BMP files that I use on forms that I use while customizing a CAD/CAM system (Siemens NX). NX uses Magenta (FF00FF) as a 'transparent' colour so I often use this as the background of my bitmaps. In the past I have simply saved the bitmaps with the default Auto-detect Bit Depth and all was OK. However, now it seems that this setting changes the Magenta colour slightly as NX now does not see it as Magenta and my bitmaps have a rather striking pink background 😱 I've tried saving in 32/24/8/4 bit depths and NX seems to like 24 and 8 bit depths. The question is, has the Auto-detect changed with the latest updates and/or has the other bit depths changed to modify the Magenta colour? This is obviously not a show-stopper as I can save in 34 bit and everything is OK, Just like to know these things...
