DDS files not available

The plugin you said works with DDS too, but it needs to rename .dds -> .dds2. I thought paint.net supports DDS "out-of-box". I was wrong?

 

No, you are not wrong.  You should have the plain DDS in the drop down:

It is a mystery why it's not there for you.  Did you download Paint.net from the website here?

Yes. Just now I've uninstalled paint.net completely and then install it again from this site (as usual). And no DDS option on Open/Save. However, I've recompiled this plugin (DDS FileType Plus) and now it is replacing the original missing FileType. I can work with DDS again, this is good, but the loss of original feature is really mysterious.

 

Well, thank you in any case)

You are Welcome - I'm glad that Plugin worked for you.  Perhaps someone else on the forum can explain why you can't see the DDS after you downloaded PDN.  Maybe it's the system you are using?  Or .............. Gremlins ?

Paint.NET does support DDS but it's out-of-date, hence the plugin. I'm planning on upgrading the built-in functionality sometime this year, and hopefully the plugin will no longer be necessary.

I wonder if the string has been missed from the translation? 

 

@Meridiano what language have you set pdn to? Did you install a 3rd party language pack?
