    Yet, if I use "Snip & Sketch" to obtain the screenshot, there is no distortion.  It pastes into Paint.net at the exact same size as was snipped.  The problem is, usually I am in Outlook and the "Screenshot" function is readily available to me, much easier than having to open Snip & Sketch from the taskbar or start menu.


    You can use WinKey + Shift + S to use Snip&Sketch. That's pretty convenience.


  2. This is a hotfix for a few important issues that have come to light with the 4.2.11 release.


    If you’re using the Windows Store release, you should get the update automatically within the next 24 hours. You can also force an update check by following these instructions.


    For the Classic release, you should be offered the update automatically within the next week or so. You can get the update sooner by going to ⚙ Settings → Updates → Check Now. You can also download and install it directly from the website.

  3. This is a hotfix for a few issues that have come to light with the 4.2.11 release.


    To get this update, make sure you have "Also check for pre-release (beta) versions" enabled in Settings, and then click on the Check Now button. (Unfortunately alpha/beta releases are not currently available for the Microsoft Store version of the app).


    You can also download install this build directly: https://www.getpaint.net/files/zip/test/paint.net.4.212.7453.40940.install.zip


    Changes since 4.2.11:

    • Fixed an error that was preventing some old PDN images from loading (reported here: https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/116501-error-opening-older-pdn-files/)
    • Fixed a crash in the new selection outline renderer (due to misaligned Push/PopAxisAlignedClip calls)
    • Changed saving to use the ReplaceFile Win32 API, which improves its compatibility
    • Fixed an EndOfStreamException that prevented some JPEGs from opening (thanks @null54 for the fix!)


    If all goes well, I plan to finalize and publish the 4.2.12 update sometime this weekend.
