  1. Many of the tools use the <ENTER> key as shortcut to "Finish" the tool's action. The Text tool has such a "Finish" button and it's pop up suggests that the <ENTER> key be used to "Finish" processing keyboard input as text. There's a collision here - the Text tool accepts the <ENTER> key as a "new line" so that multi-line text may be (appropriately) left justified. It seems that it is impossible for non-mouse (keyboard) users to escape the Text tool. I understand that for continuity it would be nice that "Finish" be implemented via the <ENTER> key, but in the case of
  2. On the status bar, just to the right of the drawing dimensions, is a readout (constantly updating) displaying the drawing-relative location of the mouse pointer. The numeric display reads something like: d, d or -d, dd; where the X and/or Y value might be anywhere from -ddddd (imagine a six monitor 4K ultra HD system with all six monitors in a row or column) to d. If the overall display string gets more than dd, dd (-d, ddd etc.) characters in length little icon gets partially or completely overdrawn. I suspect that this might be sensitive based on some user-modified OS default.
  3. 4.0.13 fixed this issue for a number of dialogs but others remain broken (e.g. the color palette "Colors" as well as various built-in Adjustment & Effect dialogs).
  4. On my 1920 X 1080 monitor the various cursors are so small as to be almost invisible. Even higher resolution monitors are becoming quite common. I could not find any .cur files in my Paint.net folder. Are they embedded in the executable?
  5. Exactly - I have changed the menu font (family and size) for readability. Changing the DPI messes up many other programs and negates the benefits of my 65" 1920X1080 monitors. You said "For now" - does that mean you hope to make your dialogs font sensitive? I have reverted to 4.0.10 (which seems to ignore the OS specified fonts). BTW, I am a programmer and technical document editor/author; years ago I worked on Microsoft's Accessibility Team where (among other things) I worked on application font sensitivity - especially where it impacted folks with low visual acuity. I
  6. Note that the widgets in the dialog overlap making some Illegible and others inaccessible. The previous version (4.0.10? - I might have missed 4.0.11 if it was only out for a couple of days) did not exhibit this behavior.
  7. The problem persists after quite a few reboots; see previous post for workaround.

  8. This was enough of a hint for me to figure out a (at least currently) successful workaround. From what I can determine the problem is a collision between the Tool floating-dialog-style toolbar & the toolbar-in-the-menu-area-style. To conserve screen real estate I keep the dialog-style turned off and almost exclusively use keyboard shortcuts; when I (rarely) need one of the tools for which I do not recall keyboard shortcut I use the new toolbar. After a while of launching and exiting numerous times during the day it appears that the keyboard shortcuts are forgotten. By opening the dialo
  9. I used to be able to press the <z> key to activate the zoom tool, similarly <e> to activate the eraser tool etc. The shortcuts no longer show up in the tooltips. Is this a known issue (and if so is it fixed in the current beta) or is it likely to be a problem with my setup?
