my Outline no longer works? :(


Recommended Posts

hello all, and first allow me to say thanks for the awesome program and plugins. i've been using paint.net for a short while now, but long enough to see that it's an excellent application, and until tonight i've not had any problems.

however, tonight i downloaded two new plugins, one renders fire and the other creates a firey outline. since i've added these to the Effects folder, my regular outline (which i use heavily) no longer works at all. i've tried removing the two new DLLs, reinstalling the outline plugin (both Boltbait's and Pyro's), then i removed paint.net and reinstalled, along with new installs of the plugins, and when that didn't work, i tried to perform a system restore. nothing worked! :evil: now when i hit Outline or Outline Object, nothing appears at all, regardless of width, strength, background color, or primary color.

i can't think of anything else to try at this point, and i have no idea what happened to my outline. any assistance would be very much appreciated.

is there some method of updating of which i'm unaware? because neither Boltbait's Outline nor Pyrochild's Outline Object work for me, as i mentioned above. this is after complete reinstalls of both plugins. as mentioned above. perhaps i should've mentioned that both were reinstalled from their latest zip packages? (Pyro's, for instance, was just updated yesterday).

EDIT: perhaps i was being hasty in testing? after messing around some this morning, i realized that neither Outline nor Outline Object works for me on the background layer, but does work for me on any other layer. hadn't tried this, because i didn't think the layer being attempted would make a difference, but that just goes to show you what i know :roll:

anyway, both are working, and i apologize for adding another thread without fully testing first.

It wouldn't, that's why.

Something appears to rather wrong with your installation of the plugins or the plugins themselves. If you would post your concerns with each plugin in their respective topic, that would be great - we try our best to keep all plugin-related issues within the plugin discussions, therefore we can quickly and easily point people to the topic where all solutions are.

Futhermore, there is an announcement at the top of this Troubleshooting section that reads Plugin problems? Try the plugin's thread in the plugin forum. It would be sensible to do so ;).

Because of this, I'm going to lock this topic. This doesn't stop you from posting again, in fact, we'd be more than happy to extend the hand of help when you need it.
