  1. It'd be nice if they could be set as toolbars as my choice (a la Word) so I could keep that workspace clear...I'm getting neck ache craning my head around to see behind them
  2. I've been upgraded to release candidate 1 - and the problem seems to have gone away..it now shows .PNG files when the Open dialogue is set to All Image Types and it now saves with the correct extention. Fingers crossed...
  3. It occurs when I first save another file type as .PNG - I use 'Save As.." and leave the default file name usually (eg the file name I started with - this works just fine with other types). Never used the icon. If I resave a .PNG file, I must click on the file icon itself or type .png into the Save As dialogue after the file name or Paint.NET saves it without extention as well..
  4. If system info is important: OS Name Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Version 5.1.2600 Service Pack 2 Build 2600 OS Manufacturer Microsoft Corporation System Manufacturer NVIDIA System Model AWRDACPI System Type X86-based PC Processor x86 Family 15 Model 12 Stepping 0 AuthenticAMD ~2210 Mhz BIOS Version/Date Phoenix Technologies, LTD 6.00 PG, 8/27/2004 SMBIOS Version 2.2 Windows Directory C:\WINDOWS System Directory C:\WINDOWS\system32 Boot Device \Device\HarddiskVolume1 Locale United States Hardware Abstraction Layer Version = "5.1.2600.2180 (xpsp_sp2_rtm.040803-2158)" Total Physical Memory 1,024.00 MB Available Physical Memory 678.73 MB Total Virtual Memory 2.00 GB Available Virtual Memory 1.96 GB Page File Space 2.40 GB Page File C:\pagefile.sys The video card is Nvidia GFX5500 128 DDR
  5. Trust me to have a unique problem..OK - most of the stuff I do needs to be saved in png format. My sources can be any other, but usually jpeg or BMP. I do the work, keep a save file in PNT format and when I am done, I save the final file as PNG. I am not sure what more I can tell you about it? Not all have layers, not all are complex..sometimes it is simply a case of getting the original, opening it and then and resaving it to PNG. How specific do you want me to be? The BMP files are almost always created by UVMapper, the others, jpeg and gif etc come from all over...
  6. Title says it all..the saved png files themselves are fine but they are saved without the extention so Paint.NET won't recognize them unless you edit the filename itself..
  7. Thank you for the welcome Shimmery I have more or less adapted to the things I mentioned. Like you said, it's just a matter of working around and coming at it from a different direction. I upgraded to 2.6 anyway. I like your work btw..and the pic does show off patterning well. cutting and pasting a custom fill pattern (say, a sandstone texture) is fiddly and time consuming especially in a complex shape so I guess I will have to hang on to GIMP for that at least..
  8. I love this so far. MSPaint was too limited, GIMP is..ummm...well..odd. Couple of things are missing that should be in any paint programme though - pattern painting using a supplied image as the pattern, the ability to re-enter a text field after exiting it with colour and formatting options (like Wordart in a way, I guess) and omg..where is "nudge"? Zooming 700% to align a selection by a pixel is not on, especially since there are no 'grab' points on a zoomed selection.. oops..almost forgot..why can't I paste from the Windows clipboard? I used to use Wordart for fancy font stuff and then cut and paste it into the paint proggy..this one won't do it
