On Open, Default to Image Size on Clipboard

Recommended Posts

If I take a screen clipping and perform a File -> New, paint.net will default the canvas size to the size of the image on the clipboard.  It would be best if it worked the same way when opening the app.  As of now, when I open the app it defaults to 800 x 600.

Edit -> Paste into New Image (Ctrl+Alt+V) is your friend here :)


Querying the clipboard at startup isn't actually a good idea, for a few reasons. It creates an inconsistent experience ... but more importantly, the clipboard is a catankerous, unreliable, grump old codger. Querying the clipboard at startup is a great way to end up with a crash that prevents you from opening Paint.NET :(
