Ego Eram Reputo Posted April 24, 2017 Share Posted April 24, 2017 This thread is for reporting errors, omissions and any other additions that you think the online paint.net documentation could use. When reporting corrections, please include the URL of the page in question. Thanks. You know, together we can make paint.net even better List of suggestions ( and what I'm doing about them). Anything listed as Fixed will be rolled out next update. Once rolled out I'll hide the entry to keep the list manageable. Green = complete / fixed / done Orange = open for discussion / comment Purple = pending Spoiler Headings should have an Id - Installed. It was a long process Apache Rule to exclude .html from URL - One for Rick. Clarifying tip about URL in Open dialog - done. Status bar image is too small - fixed. Pagecount ticker rewording - Reworded. Image captions & revision text too fain - fixed. Add higher levels to sub-level navigation - done FAQ 404 error - Rick spotted this a couple of weeks ago - fixed. Hyphenation - some of them. Some of the suggestions have been implemented. The Age of Tips. I'll remove the term "new" and rewrite the tips following this current list of changes. These are non-critical. The phrase "By default this is blank which places the shortcut "loose" at the top of the hierarchy" could be paraphrased for grammar. Fixed. "Start menu Programs" should be "Start Menu Programs". Fixed. "H (temporary activation)" has an extra space. Fixed. Getting Started --> License: put link on a separate line- fixed. "In the center" should be followed by a comma. Fixed. "thumbnai" should be "thumbnail". Fixed. "with options to Save, Don't Save, or Cancel" could be "with options to save, not save, or cancel" to reduce awkward phrasing. Keeping the options as these are what the user actually sees. Changed wording to "with options: Save,..." "through the image History" should be "through the image history". Fixed. - The phrase "More Adjustments" should be "More adjustments". and The phrase "More Effects" should be "More effects". I Disagree and want to keep the capitalization. It helps differentiate the Effect from the effect. "This function of these icons... F5 F6 F7 & F8" is ambiguous. Fixed. "on the this dialog" should be "on this dialog". Fixed "From here paint.net can be customized and it's behavior set." Reworded. the navigation drop-down says "Toolbar", though. It should say "Tool Bar". Fixed. "In addition" should be followed by a comma. Fixed. "The behavior of paint.net...to Pencil Tool" is ambiguous. Reworded. Antialiased or anti-aliased? Rick uses "antialiased" (on his blog and in paint.net itself). I followed his lead. ...shows information about paint.net" should be followed by a comma. Fixed. The phrase "In other words" should be followed by a comma. Fixed. The phrase "For example" should be followed by a comma. Fixed. Consider removing the word "apparently". Done. phrase "more dull" should be "dull". Done. The phrase "When the Curves dialog first appears" should be followed by a comma. Fixed. The phrase "In this graph" should be followed by a comma. Fixed. The phrase "the apple retains it's red color" should be "the apple retains its red color". Remove the contraction. Done. The phrase "On the left side" should be followed by a comma. Done. The phrase "on a all" should be "on all". Fixed. The phrase "In other words" should be followed by a comma. Fixed. Menus -> Effects -> Noise: six commas inserted. example image for Soften Portrait changes the woman's eye colors. I've decided to leave this image as-is.. It's only fair to give an honest result of the effect. The spelling typo "centre" should be "center". Fixed. Twice. I suggest making the word "With" lowercase in the page header. Done. should be "by clicking on its name". Remove the contraction. Fixed. suggest making the word "With" lowercase in the page header. Done. "Thus the order" should be "Thus, the order". Fixed. Spelling typo: "Properites" should be "Properties". What? you've never opened the properites dialog? phrase "When this pattern is seen" should be followed by a comma. Fixed. phrase "For the following discussion" should be followed by a comma. Fixed. On both pages. Screen shots > installing plugins. Done. A glossary of terms used in paint.net could be useful - Done. External links like "How To Install Custom Shapes" (in Tools --> Text & Shape Tools --> Geometric Shape Tools) warrant a dedicated page in the official documentation to put all information in one area - Added to the "links" page. The phrase "This mode allow" should be "This mode allows". Fixed. The phrase "When the pointer is moved" should be followed by a comma. Fixed The phrase "When the pointer is moved" should be followed by a comma. Fixed I suggest naming the navigation heading "Magic Wand Tools". Done The phrase "Of course" should be followed by a comma. Done The phrase "Selection By Exclusion" could be "Selection by Exclusion" depending on how pedantic you want to be. I am. Fixed The phrase "When either Move tool" should be "When either Move Tool" Fixed The phrase "Anti-Aliasing" should be "Antialiasing" in accordance with your desire to make it a single word. Aha! I've been caught being hypocritical! Fixed. Note that the one word version is used in paint.net too. Its not just me! The phrase "In this respect" should be followed by a comma. Fixed The phrase "Anti-Aliasing" should be "Antialiasing" in accordance with your desire to make it a single word. Fixed everywhere. The phrase "To install custom shapes" should be followed by a comma. Fixed Consider "Additionally, there are plugins to " Reworded. The hyperlink for "How To Create Custom Shapes" leads to the Forums (I think it's broken). This is also true of "ShapeMaker". Yup. Fixed. Update of the forum software requires links to have a character appended after the trailing hyphen. Any character will do! I had to tweak the Plugin Index The next batch of edits and suggestions.... Holding Ctrl and clicking the + or - for the brush size can increment/decrement five at a time. You can hover the mouse over the Fill and brush size properties for the paintbrush and use the mouse wheel to scroll through options. Not all users will notice that they can hover over the tools to view the keyboard shortcut, so each tool should have its keyboard shortcut listed on that tool's page. On the Geometric Shapes page, the tip "Shapes can be forced to have equal height and width..." should come immediately after "When creating a Shape, hold down the Shift key to maintain...", and perhaps be merged with that tip. The tips are highly related (one is for creating the shape and one is for adjusting it), and the current position of the first tip mentioned seems to be out-of-context with its surrounding text. I thought there was missing information at one point, but there wasn't. However, it did prove that having a seperate Keyboard & Mouse Input page can go unnoticed. Segmenting the documentation of one feature into zones like that, however important, may be improved by linking to that page for convenience. Consider something along the lines of "To view all keyboard and mouse shortcuts, see this page."
