  1. Hello, I looked around the menus, googled, and checked the archives but didn't find the answer. Is there an automatic way to tell to replace all the bits in the picture that are displayed in the background color with the foreground color? I vaguely remember that PaintShopPro allowed this, although the user had to use the eraser. Thank you.
  2. This thread is from 2014, so I have to ask: As of 2019, is there a way to highlight text in a clear-cut way à la Microsoft Word, or are we still stuck with paintbrush? Thank you.
  3. Thanks. Any idea what happened? Unzipped and copied DLL into .\Effects Started Pasted background picture Effects > Render > TRSM File: C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\Effects\TRsSplineMaster.dll Name: TRsSplineMaster.EffectPlugin Version: Author: TechnoRobbo Copyright: Copyright 2013 TechnoRobbo Website: Full error message: System.ArgumentException: Font 'Arial Narrow' does not support style 'Regular'. at System.Drawing.Font.CreateNativeFont() at System.Drawing.Font.Initialize(FontFamily family, Single emSize, FontStyle style, GraphicsUnit unit, Byte gdiCharSet, Boolean gdiVerticalFont) at System.Drawing.Font.Initialize(String familyName, Single emSize, FontStyle style, GraphicsUnit unit, Byte gdiCharSet, Boolean gdiVerticalFont) at System.Drawing.Font..ctor(String familyName, Single emSize) at TRsSplineMaster.EffectPluginConfigDialog.InitializeComponent() at TRsSplineMaster.EffectPluginConfigDialog..ctor() at TRsSplineMaster.EffectPlugin.CreateConfigDialog() at PaintDotNet.Menus.EffectMenuBase.RunEffectImpl(Type effectType) in D:\src\pdn\src\PaintDotNet\Menus\EffectMenuBase.cs:line 873 -- Edit: Followed this tip, to no avail. I do have c:\windows\fonts\ARIALN.TTF on my Windows7 computer, but it does look like it only supports Bold:
  4. Hello, As someone suggested, I just checked ShapeMaker to draw a straight line with more than four control nubs, but I find it overly complicated to use. Is there another plug-in I should check just to draw straight lines with arrow ends, that won't require saving a file, restarting Paint, and adding the shape onto the background picture? Thank you. -- Edit: How to remove ShapeMaker? I found no item in Control Panel, and no trace in "c:\Program Files\Paint.NET\Effects\.." "c:\Program Files\Paint.NET\FileTypes\.." -- Edit: Found it by chance: Hover the mouse over its menu item, and it says ""c:\Program Files\Paint.NET\Effects\DHShapeMaker.dll"
  5. It's 2019, and apparently, still doesn't support drawing a line with angles and more than two internal controls nubs. Surely, I'm not the only one who needs to draw this kind of thing? I had to draw five independent lines.
  6. Hello, The other day, I used the Ruler and chose to display things in cms instead of pixels, and now, for some reason, fonts are super small even when using a 26 point size. Any idea how to get back to normal? Thank you.
  7. Thanks. As much as possible, I try to avoid plugins unless totally necessary. After I paste a line in a new layer, is there an easy way to line up and space the lines in the different layers ? View > Pixel Grid displays nothing. I assumed it'd be an easy way to move each line/layer so that it'd be lined vertically/horizontally.
  8. I found the cause, but not the reason for the issue: For some reason, the line consists in three parts: When I clicked without zooming in, the magic wand would select one of the three layers. Why does the line have three parts?
  9. Thanks for the tip. For some reason, after selecting the original line with the magic wand, hitting CTRL+C to copy and CTRL+V to paste it, and using the down arrow to move the new line below, it's thinner than the original:
  10. Since the original line is pre-selected after I drew it, isn't is possible to simply CTRL+V to paste it and hit the arrow key to move it underneath? Using the Rectangle tool introduces some blank space around the item, which I'd like to avoid if possible.
  11. Thanks. I need to line them up exactly, thusly: _____________ _____________ _____________ _____________ I looked up "line up" in the Search bar, but found nothing.
