  1. Have you tried the... Offline Installers and Portable ZIPs are available over on GitHub.
  2. Click right here: https://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/ColorsWindow.html
  3. There's your problem right there! Uninstall that junk and just use the built-in Windows Defender.
  4. This means RIGHT AFTER SAVING (before closing the file or exiting Paint.NET), you can press Ctrl+Z to unflatten the file and then save as .PDN or continue editing.
  5. I've noticed that the forum becomes busier during the summer months.

  9. Hey BoltBait. I am trying to let Paint>net know my Paint.Net just now stopped working. It will not now let me change size and other  numbers for my pictures. It has never done this before. I think I have 5.0.6 PDN. I tried to find the correct page to address this but could not find it. So I am contacting you. Sorry to be a bother.

    Ms. Carol

      well I deleted the PDN 5.01 and tried to install a newer version. It uninstalled the old but could not install the new? I wish I was a s smart as you guys. I am Sorry BoltBait. I do not know what to do.

      Post your situation on the message board where people smarter than me will see it. Be sure to include all error messages. 

  10. What effects are you trying to run and for what purpose? If you're trying to make a background, for example, why not simply make one on it's own background layer? You wouldn't need to make it for each frame... just reuse it.
  11. Make your selection and press Ctrl+X Press Ctrl+Shift+V Move your selection around and when it's where you want it, press Ctrl+M
  12. Version 2.1! Just a little clean up of the UI... Added a few more controls to change colors and other options. My son really finds this helpful in his Geometry class. Often, problems will be something like, "You have a triangle with points A(-5,0) B(2,6) and C(6,-2)..." etc. This gives him a quick way to create his drawing for working the problem. This is why I wrote this plugin. Another use for this plugin is to make simple dot-to-dot puzzles for children. Here's one I made: Anyway, NOW I'm done tinkering with this! BBGraphPaper.zip Enjoy.
  13. For me, Paint.NET opens on the monitor where it is launched from. I have it pinned to my task bar and my task bar is visible on all screens. I run 2 monitors at home and 3 at work--works the same both places. Win 11. This is actually one of my favorite features of Paint.NET. I wish all programs would do this.
