  1. Sorry for the slow response. I had already finished my last project and it could be some time before I have another. I'll be back after trying safe mode, but I do not know when.
  2. I've recently moved to a computer with better specs which was updated to Windows 10 Creators edition. On my old computer I was able to have several big files open simultaneously while running several other programs, without issues. On the new computer with one file open and many fewer other programs running and with about 1/3rd less plugins, starts out snappy but slows down quickly. A fresh reboot provides more running time than closing and restarting File saves are very slow at all times. That is especially surprising since I'm using solid state memory and my old computer had a traditional hard disk. I've been working on a 1500x15000 pdn. Actually, it started as a png and I had freeze problems at that stage. Usually they began after a copy command, even on a small selection. The pdn is a fairly simple file. It's the same png with a white layer below and a little text above. Chkdsk and sfc /scannow come up clean. I've searched to see if Windows could be the culprit. Windows Defender can be a problem so I excluded the following from scans: PaintDotNet.exe, .pdn and other graphic file types, the effects and file types folders. There aren't any plugins that failed and the crash report folder is empty.

    Watery Text effect

    Thanks Yellowman. That did the trick. There was one part of the directions that I had difficulty with, but I was able to find a suitable workaround. However, I'd sure like to know how to follow the directions. Here's the part that gave me difficulty: "Use the Magic Wand with Global option ... select the black area, then Invert Selection." The part that I couldn't figure out was Invert Selection. I tried Invert ("xor") in the Selection Mode dropdown both before and after selecting. That didn't change anything. What am I doing wrong?
  5. I've been trying to emulate a text effect created by Cool Text logos. I'm after a watery feel and was able to get close by choosing the Chrome One effect with The Boomerang italic font. (To duplicate you can find the font under the Script or Brush category). Here's what it looks like: I've tried different ways of using the metallic effect with no luck. Any suggestions on how to approximate the effect would really be appreciated.
