  1. Okay perfect, that gives me what I need, thanks
  2. It's extremely difficult to look through that, and I think it's missing the top part which is what I really need. Do you still have the original? Or @Seerose can just post a new one if it's always happening. It seems to be related to loading FileType plugins at startup, but I can't see the full cause. For future reference, crash logs can be posted successfully if they are put in-between [ code ] tags
  3. Post here with exactly what you're doing, any crashlogs, steps to reproduce the problem (video if necessary, always helpful), and include sample images if necessary.
  4. Oh, well that should be easy enough to fix
  5. This should be the final alpha release of 4.1.7. Next up I'll be integrating translation updates, fixing any last issues, and releasing the final build. A lot more work went in this build than I was expecting! I decided to take on the work of making sure effect plugins could have good access to the clipboard, which is otherwise a very buggy area to navigate. A lot of other bugs and things were sorted out as well. Download link: https://www.getpaint.net/files/zip/test/paint.net.4.107.7104.37431.install.zip Note: I'll be adding this to the built-in updater later today. For now, please use the download link above. Changes since build 7079: * New: Keyboard shortcuts for changing the current layer. You can see these in the Layers menu with the "Go to ..." commands. Alt+PgUp/PgDown will go to the layer above/below, and Ctrl+Alt+PgUp/PgDown will go to the top/bottom layer. * New: PNGs can now be saved as "interlaced" * New: Plugins that use IndirectUI can now use a UriProperty with a LinkLabel control (thanks @null54!) * New: Effect plugins can now more easily make use of the clipboard via the IClipboardService. It will handle all of the tricky clipboard issues such as threading, native data marshaling, and avoiding security vulnerabilities that exist in the standard WinForms and WPF clipboard APIs. * Improved: When using Edit->Copy, a 32-bit BGRA bitmap in the DIBV5 format is now placed onto the clipboard so that other apps can read the alpha channel. * Improved: When using Edit->Paste, DIBV5's are now supported if they have an alpha channel. If they don't, then the regular DIB loader is used which has some heuristics for detecting an incorrectly defined alpha channel and correcting for it. * Improved: When using Edit->Paste, PNG is now the highest priority format. This maximizes the ability to maintain alpha/transparency, but it does mean that images coming from Microsoft Office apps will appear larger than they used to. This is either a bug or a feature of Microsoft Office. For some reason it places PNGs on the clipboard that are 25%+ larger than the DIB/DIBV5 bitmap that it also places on the clipboard (but which don't have alpha/transparency). * Fixed: 8-bit TGA images should now load correctly (thanks @null54 for the fix!) * Fixed: Some 32-bit TGA images were showing up as completely transparent due to their use of an obscure alpha channel type (thanks @null54 for the fix!) * Fixed: Simple message boxes can now be closed with the ESC key * Fixed: Some TIFFs could not be resaved as a JPEG due to having too much metadata (usually from Adobe Photoshop). The metadata is now discarded if necessary. * Changed: Blocked the WebP FileType v1.1.0.0 plugin due to instability. An update is already available. * Changed: Blocked the ImAgif FileType v0.12.0.1084 plugin due to incompatibility. An update will hopefully soon be available. Enjoy!
  6. That's 100% normal. It's an in-memory cache, by definition. Everything in memory is technically "deleted" upon shutdown, along with everything in the File I/O Cache. Technically it's called the standby list.
  7. It's probably been accidentally saved as a PNG, so try renaming it to have that extension.
  8. Yeah you shouldn't really even notice an effect* on load time with having a lot of plugins anymore, since 4.1.4. If you have spinning rust (HDD instead of SSD) then the first time you start the app it may thrash the disk a lot if you have A LOT of plugins. Once it's cached it's no big deal though. * unintentional pun
  9. It looks like the ImAGIF plugin is going to need to be recompiled. It's using a class (PaletteTable) that's internal to Paint.NET that is being updated in 4.1.7 in a way that's incompatible with ImAGIF's use of it. You'll want to report this in that plugin's thread and make sure to get the author's attention.
  10. No, but others have mentioned Chrome. OP is AWOL, so there's not much we can really do here.
  11. You can also just type in whatever size you want. I think there's still a maximum though, but I forget what it is.
  12. If you accidentally did a regular Paste instead of Paste into New Layer, then all you had to do to correct that was Undo and then Paste into New Layer. There is no need to add another menu command. It's not possible to paste something with- or across- multiple layers, so this comment doesn't really make sense. Also, this thread is 12 years old. I'm closing it.
  13. Paint.NET does in fact use the JPEG decode/encoder that's built-in to Windows.
