I know about boltbait's and pirochild's plugins
But I believe its time to have the text outling feature as part of the default text tool
using the plugins with closed circle letters and longer text it can take ridiculous time to do the outline, adding innards of A, B, D, O, P, Q, R to the selection so that inner lines are outlined as well
It's a feature that many young meme makers will look for when they dont feel like doing their stuff online, but I feel like its essential beyond just silly memes
making 10+ clicks to get it with plugins, instead of ~2 clicks if it were default part of the text tool, that feels inefficient
It's just that I am the IT guy in my circles and it's starting to bother me, how I have to babysit and install plugins for the less tech-savvy people because paint.NET lacks that feature and I am the guy who lead them to paint.NET so it's suddenly my responsibility. I even have to record gif of how to do it with the plugins, so they can remember later... new layer, magical wand, select empty space, add innards with ctrls, go to effects,... you know...
maybe have a look at the linux competition? No, not gimp, I mean Pinta, its nowhere near as good as Paint.NET but they did the text outline right
Thanks for reading.
