  1. Triggered by the remarks coming from some other translators, I decided to check the latest activities in Crowdin.

    I noticed that some new strings have been introduced and that the automatic translations from Bing have been pushed through. 

    Oh dear, oh dear. MT may be nice with words, but definitely not good with sentences.

     

    Rick,

    I had to make some changes. Could you approve these?

    And please next time consider to send the Crowdin translators a brief notification that new strings are ready for (proper) translation.


  2. When saving (overwriting) an existing jpg file that resides in a OneDrive managed folder, I get the following error:

    Quote

    System.IO.IOException: Er is een ongeldige aanvraag voor een naam gedaan. De gevraagde naam kan momenteel niet worden verkregen.

       bij System.IO.__Error.WinIOError(Int32 errorCode, String maybeFullPath)
       bij System.IO.File.InternalMove(String sourceFileName, String destFileName, Boolean checkHost)
       bij PaintDotNet.IO.SaveTransaction.Commit() in D:\src\pdn\src\PaintDotNet\IO\SaveTransaction.cs:regel 146

       bij PaintDotNet.Functional.Func.Try(Action f) in D:\src\pdn\src\Base\Functional\Func.cs:regel 174

     

    The first line would translate as follows: An invalid name request has been made. The requested name cannot be obtained at this time.

    "Save as" using a different file name works without problems. (Currently my workaround)

    Any ideas?


  3. @Rick Brewster I misread the instructions. I thought that a folder named paint.net App Files would be created (automatically by the App) and that I would have to place my Effects, etc. in there.  I've created the folder myself and placed inthere the Effects etc. and all is well now.

    @warlordnik I purchased paint.net App yesterday from NL without a problem. Do you have a valid credit card associated with your MS account?

     


  4. Fantastic! I purchased immediately, if only to test the Dutch localisation.

    Plugins are supported for the Store release. You just have to install them in a different location. Go to your Documents folder, create a folder called “paint.net App Files” (no quotes though), and then create a folder for each plugin type: Effects, FileTypes, and Shapes.

     

    Effects seem to not work on my Dutch language W10 PC.

     

    The created folder is translated into Dutch language: paint.net gebruikersbestanden.
    I've copied the folders "Effects" and "FileTypes" in there, but paint.net W10 App does not show the plugins. 

    Also, if I open the Palettes folder, this created folder is named Paletten which is also the Dutch translation.

     

    I checked in Crowdin and found the following:

    - paint.net User Files is translated into paint.net gebruikersbestanden (I did that, as did all other translators)

    - Palettes is translated into Paletten (I did that, as did all other translators)

    - Effects I cannot find

    - FileTypes I cannot find either

    I probably need te revert these two translations, don't I?

    Still there remains the difference between the mentioned paint.net App Files and the string in Crowdin paint.net User Files.


  5. I'd like to make a case for an enhanced way of storing and managing plugins.

     

    Currently paint.net plugins (v4.0.x) must be downloaded and unpacked in the subfolders Effects, FileTypes ans Shapes within the paint.net installation folder.

    • The fact that this is a manual job is not convenient for those who are less computer savvy
    • The fact that copying files into subfolders of the installation folder requires Administrative rights is a blockade for users living in a restricted computer environment, such as Education or larger companies

    Of course it would be best if paint.net would have a Plugin manager where the user can select desired plugins and downloading, installing and updating would be taken care of automatically. I figure such will be quite a project to take up.

     

    An intermediate solution could be that paint.net allows for alternative plugin locations, e.g. C:\Users\username\paint.net.ext\Effects\etc.

    This ready accessible folder would allow restricted users to download and store plugins without the help of an Administrator. As a second alternative location I´d like to propose C:\Users\Public\paint.net.ext\Effects\etc.

    With both alternative plugin locations in action, it is possible to have a basic set of plugins installed for all users plus additional ´personal´ plugins available per user.

     

    Maybe such an enhancement would be possible within a less lengthy development scheme.


  6. Alternative solution (save the following lines as a *.reg file):

     

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
     
    REMOVED
     
    Whenever mspaint.exe is called, PaintDotNet.exe is actually executed.

    This trick is used by NotePad2 to replace notepad.exe and also by SysInternals ProcessExplorer to replace the standard Windows Task Manager.


  7. Check the system requirements at http://www.getpaint.net/download.html

     

    Minimum System

    • Windows 7 SP1 or newer (including Windows 8, 8.1, and 8.1 Update 1)
    • 1GHz processor (dual-core recommended)
    • 1GB of RAM

    Paint.NET depends on Microsoft's .NET Framework 4.5, which is automatically installed if it isn't already on the system.

     

     
    Your W7HP/SP1 sounds alright.
    Depending the version of .NET on your system, you may need an update to 4.5, but that will be taken care of automatically during the install.

  8. I've tried a number of Screen Capture programs that I use from time to time:

    • Standard Windows [WIN-PrtScn]
    • Window Clippings
    • PicPick
    • GreenShot
    • XnViewMP
    • Screengrab Firefox extension

    For each, copy-paste worked just fine.

     

    As #softlion is mentioning "drag-and-drop", I did some further testing:

    • Firefox - drag-and-drop image works fine
    • Chromium - drag-and-drop does not work
    • Internet Explorer - drag-and-drop does not work
    • Hmmm, what other applications would I want to drag images from....

    But should we expect this to work?

    Isn't it up to the 'drag-from' program to make something available or not to the 'drop-into' program?


  9. To me, it looks like the copy-paste issue has been properly fixed.

    I've just tried it on my W8.1 64-bit PC using the latest versions of Chromium, Firefox and Internet Explorer.

    With each browser I visited a different web site and (obviously) copied a different picture.

    All copied images pasted [Ctrl-Alt-V] perfectly in today's paint.net.


  10. It's a very minor issue, but installing this beta (build 5168) on a en-GB version of Windows sets the default Paint.NET language to 'portugês (Portugal)' in the Options window. The UI, however, correctly uses English.

    This happened to my installation as well.

    The UI language being Dutch, the language selection menu actually pointing to Portugese.


  11. See sceencapture of an example where the OneNote icon in RocketDock has been replaced by the PdN icon.
    Of course it's easy to blame RocketDock. After all it's old, no longer maintained and it does have its peculiarities.
    But this this has come up on and off since recently.
    Is it related to Paint.net v4, some Windows 8.1 update, Rocketdock getting lost on its icons, ...?
    I cannot tell, but I think it suspicious that it's always the PdN icon that is the replacing icon.

     

    Edit 3/3/2014 - Added second screenshot demonstrating another occurrance of the phenomenon
