  1. Confirmed, this repros for me too. It's not a crash, it's a stuck/infinite loop in WarpEffectBase::ReflectCoord() because of floating point precision.
  2. Also please elaborate what you mean by "slow" ... like it takes 5 seconds to start? 3 minutes? etc
  3. Some other software probably has a lock on the clipboard. Might go away if you can figure out which software, although sometimes it takes a reboot. You can easily tell if this is the case if other software is also having problems with copy/paste.
  4. It's almost certainly the screen recording software. They are known to cause issues like this.
  5. Also try with the new 4.2.16 update. Might work better, I put in something that should have fixed this (with hardware acceleration enabled).
  6. My next guesses would be an outdated GPU driver (grab the latest from nvidia.com). If that still doesn't work, you can disable hardware acceleration in the Settings.
  7. Well, it's useful for us to know what AV software is causing problems for folks, so we can help people when they invetable ask for help here, or send me e-mails about it. No scolding, you already know what our advice is we just need the data. Avast, in particular, is known to be just downright hostile even when just saving images in Paint.NET 🤦🏼‍♂️
  8. You bring up a very good point. I think there's an easy way to improve it by putting the crosshair on the tail, like so. I've filed a bug to get this in for the next update, v4.2.17.
  9. This updates fixes and optimizes palette generation when saving at 8-bit depth or less, and also fixes any remaining issues with using "Auto-detect" for bit-depth. A new effect, Quantize (in the Effects -> Color menu), has been added, some bugs have been fixed, and bundled file type plugins have been updated. Here's a simple example of using Quantize to reduce the # of colors in an image. You can also apply dithering, just like you can when saving an image at 8-bit or lower bit-depth. You can also choose between the Octree (default) and Median Cut palette generator algorithms. O
  10. BTW, and this is something that isn't obvious and wasn't known to me for awhile either, but the ordering of the GPUs that are listed is what determines which one gets used. That is, the first one in the list is used by Direct2D/Direct3D unless the app specifically asks for a different one (which PDN does not do). When the GPU's control panel is reconfigured to prioritize the iGPU vs. the dGPU, it basically just flips the ordering of the GPUs for the enumeration code, thus causing a different one to be auto-selected. In this case it looks like the NVIDIA GPU is the default/first.
  11. From the information on Amazon, https://www.amazon.com/Huion-Graphics-Drawing-Tablet-Board/dp/B00TB0TTAC/ Compatible with Corel Painter, CorelDraw, Photoshop, Illustrator, Fireworks, Macromedia Flash, Comic Studio, SAI,Paint tool sai, Infinite Stratos, 3D MAX, Autodesk MAYA, Pixologic ZBrush and other major graphics applications. Pen scrolling – You can scroll documents and Web pages by pressing the middle button of the digital pen over the tablet’s working area. (Compatible with Windows XP/Vista/Win7/8/10 and Mac OS 10.8.0 or above. ) ... I'm betting it'll work just fi
  12. For something like this that needs to be revised, a markdown file (*.md) on GitHub is probably a better choice. For editing markdown, I've been using an app called Typora and it seems to be quite good.
