  1. 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.
  2. Here's a build with a hotfix: Install that and this will be fixed. The fix will also be a part of the final/public release of version 4.2.12, coming soon. This issue was only affecting PDN images saved with Paint.NET v3.5.8 or earlier (AFAICT).
  3. I'm working on a hotfix for this, stay tuned
  4. You can't install Paint.NET to an external disk, whether it's a USB stick or a hard drive. This is blocked by the installer because it caused all sorts of problems. It was really a complete disaster.
  5. That might actually be a bug in the new Paint.NET update. I can fix it pretty easily for 4.2.12, which is coming soon.
  6. Try renaming it to end in .png and see if it works. That's a common mistake (that is, accidentally saving as PNG type into a .pdn file)
  7. I haven't tried this yet but I've heard good things, https://www.autohotkey.com/
  8. btw I'm planning on making this easier. For instance, if you have both installed then when you launch one you'll see a message, "Hey you have both installed ... you want to uninstall the 'classic' version right?" and a button that just does it for you.
  9. If you hover your mouse over the items in the File -> Open Recent menu, it'll give you a tooltip with the full path And if you open the image you can right-click on the thumbnail at the top and then click on Open Containing Folder
  10. (I've split this off into its own thread in the Troubleshooting section)
  11. This has been possible since 2005 ... 🤦‍♂️ But if you really just want to be grumpy, we won't miss you 🙄 https://www.getpaint.net/roadmap.html
  12. Gotcha. Classic case of, "there's a fix but you have to install the update which has the fix"
  13. That's not how it works. It's not about giving permission. It would require months, even years, of engineering effort to get PDN to work on Mac. This won't be happening.
  14. You can install this build which has @null54's fix for this: https://www.getpaint.net/files/zip/test/paint.net.4.212.7448.30753.install.zip (The only difference between 4.2.11 and this 4.2.12 build is the fix for this issue.)
  15. Why would you want to type text that isn't visible ... ? The canvas scrolls to ensure the text cursor is still visible. Unless you're seeing some other kind of weird/buggy behavior ...
  16. I'm sorry you're stuck on XP for now but we have a hard policy against providing any support or download links for older versions. Your best bet is to just do a Google search for version 3.5.11.
  17. Yeah this is just something I missed. I can make sure it's in there for the next update. Thanks! Microsoft may even have an official version of this, which I would use. There's usually not a need for translators to provide this image.
  18. Windows XP hasn't been supported for a very long time. Paint.NET will not work on it. Also, you should not use Windows XP for anything -- it's no longer supported by Microsoft in any way. That means no security updates, which means it's at risk of being targeted and infected. It's just a bad OS to be using in 2020. Don't do it. If you obtained Paint.NET from the Microsoft Store, be aware that the Store is only for Windows 10. It doesn't exist on previous versions of Windows. You'll need Windows 7 SP1 or newer to install the "Classic" edition of Paint.NET.
  19. That's never fun to figure out 😬 Good luck!
  20. Locking this thread -- Final build inbound. Also, there was a memory leak that I fixed for the final release.
