  1. Hi, I did not come across this error (also have german Vista x86 and had no problems). Which installer version do you use? Btw: The "Programme" lirectory is only a link, it does not really exist. You can see the program files directory if you use non-microsoft-installer-files, like e.g. total commander uses.
  2. Sry that it take me so long, I was quite busy. I tried Ricks method first, but I already thought it would not lead to success (Sry for that Rick ) because I was quite sure to got PDN installed correctly. In fact it only overwrote the first Installation, not uninstalled and reinstalled. So I tried brads method(german language file just available today, good that I was busy) but that wasn´t the complete solution because every filetype selected during installation had PDN already as editor. But as you can see in the image, vista has categorys and in there, the old paint was still editor, I changed it and it works. So thanks brad for your tips, you explained just fine. But by the way, you can double-click on the edit-row and point through the explorer to the .exe of the program. In my Opinion this is easier because you don´t have to think about the "1" at the end and the quotes. FTM is really fast for loading 600 endings
  3. Hi, I´ve a small annoying problem with PDN. As you know during the installation you can choose to set PDN as the default Editor for several file types. I checked all which were there but it don´t works. Everytime I rightclick on an image(.bmp .jpg .png, I didn´t test .tga(I think this was the last one which I could choose PDN as editor for) because I don´t use it.) and choose edit the normal Microsoft Paint starts up. Would be really nice to have this fixed. Until the next release maybe (hopefully) fix it, where to set it manually in the registry? Thanks
  4. Because I need to be able to save in %program files% and because I recognized some Problems when processes are virtualized and when they are running with admin privileges, they aren´t.
  5. Thanks. Maybe I will deactivate the UAC, I think the problem should be gone than.
  6. Hi, I´m running Vistax86 SP1 (.NET 3.5 SP1), PDN 3.35 I was running PDN as admin with a blank image and clicked "Edit" in Windows Explorer Shell on a PNG. PDN came in front, but the image did not open, this doesn´t happen if I don´t run PDN as admin.
  7. get a crash in 3.20 alpha: File: C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\Effects\Sharpen+.dll Effect Name: Sharpen_.EffectPlugin Full error message: PaintDotNet.WorkerThreadException: Worker thread threw an exception ---> System.ObjectDisposedException: Auf das verworfene Objekt kann nicht zugegriffen werden. Objektname: RenderArgs. bei PaintDotNet.RenderArgs.get_Surface() bei PaintDotNet.Effects.GaussianBlurEffect.Render(Rectangle[] rois, Int32 startIndex, Int32 length) bei PaintDotNet.Effects.Effect`1.Render(EffectConfigToken parameters, RenderArgs dstArgs, RenderArgs srcArgs, Rectangle[] rois, Int32 startIndex, Int32 length) bei PaintDotNet.Effects.BlurEffect.Render(EffectConfigToken parameters, RenderArgs dstArgs, RenderArgs srcArgs, Rectangle[] rois, Int32 startIndex, Int32 length) bei Sharpen_.EffectPlugin.Render(EffectConfigToken parameters, RenderArgs dstArgs, RenderArgs srcArgs, Rectangle[] rois, Int32 startIndex, Int32 length) bei PaintDotNet.Effects.BackgroundEffectRenderer.ThreadFunction() --- Ende der internen Ausnahmestapelüberwachung --- bei PaintDotNet.Effects.BackgroundEffectRenderer.Join() bei PaintDotNet.Effects.BackgroundEffectRenderer.Abort() bei PaintDotNet.Menus.EffectMenuBase.DoEffect(Effect effect, EffectConfigToken token, PdnRegion selectedRegion, PdnRegion regionToRender, Surface originalSurface, Exception& exception) Seems that normal sharpen effect doesn´t work too, after this crash
  8. I think that is what makes the first version looks better. The circles can only have one color and even if the color is semi-transparent(?) you get those hard borders, which don´t look as good as the GIMPs G-Flare. I think you can make it smoother/softer(what ever is the right word might be....) if you use many circles with a small increment. But it would be even better if you draw the border pixel per pixel or don´t use circles like the first version. I don´t know how fast it is, still not testet. Maybe make a quality and a speed mode? @Fisherman´s Friend: I thought Madjik already made a stars plugin, just a little hidden in an other plugintopic. But this may be not the stars you mean. [EDIT]And sorry for all the critisim, I just thought it may help. I love your plugins and hopefully I have the time to test this on and the GenTree soon.
  9. Well, I thought about this serveral times since PDN 3.0 (I think since that Version we got the button "Plugins" under "Help") came out. And first I thought "Hey, it would be cool if this button would open a window with a list with all plugins(and a small descrimtion) in it." Then I thought that this List have to be in multiple languages, because non-native speakers don´t understand everything and so they have to try out to find what they search. The pluginpackageis a bit better, because they are already on your machine andyou can test them, but the problem is, that you (like Rick said somewhere in the Pluginforum) need the permission of the author to put it in the package, and some authors seems to be dead meanwhile. In my opinion the best soloution would be a mediawiki, with a list like in my first thought, but you can klick on the names(what a cool idea, Indy ) and come to a page only for this one plugin with one or two sample-pics and a good explanation(like the first post of a plugintopic shoulf be), but without all the comments, bugreports an versionchanges. The End
  10. Hi, I´ve a Problem with dragging very small selections, around 10*10 Pixels and smaller. When I try to drag it, PDN streches it, so I have to use the normal Paint for that. Is there a way, to drag such small selections?
  11. First Thing, what I realy made with Paint.NET. (Loaded very much plugins today, I think all ) No Layers used, but the cloud effect uses layers I think, so its not really correct at all.
  12. http://www.pcgameshardware.de/?article_id=550781 For all german fans, like me
  13. Same Problem here. PDN 3.0 Beta 2 Changeing the language to German has no effect, everything still English, but the text for restart. Other languages work fine but in espanol there is no "help" like in English, there is still the "?" like in the 2.xx versions.
  14. often requested, but the answer given To me, as I requestes this was, that I can use a word document
  15. this should be switched. it may be logcal, becaus if you onlly use the outline the color of these is the bottin you use, but if you set to interior is´t really not intuitive to have the secondary color as "filling". And that is what is allways praised about paint.net.
  16. no, i don´t think so, If I set red as primary color and maybe blue as secondary it´s very confusing to see the blue color while using left mouse button.
  17. Hi, I think you all know, that when you zoom away from the image, that there is a grey space around the picture. When you zoom in, the space disappears. I think it would be nice if there would be a little space around the image, because working nearly the task bar is not as easy as working in the middle of the screen, my opinion. And now, printing, I know you hate this and I know you heard it maybe more than 1000 times, but the print-assistant is really sh**, because you cannot print in the original size, thats why I have to use the old Paint for printing. When you use Paint.Net, you have to decide to zoom or cut the picture, so that it uses one sheet. I think it would be better if the programe defines a Pixelsize for A4-sheets, so that you can print without resizing the image.
  18. Hi, I hope I can do this in English... If you use the function which make squares and circles etc, not marking but drawing, and you use the option, to fill that figure, without lines auround, the colors are switched, I mean you have to use the other mouse button to get the color you want. puh...
