Text writing problem since new update


Recommended Posts


Since a new update install yesterday, 25th September 2018, I have not been able to write text to the required size I need, it always comes out a lot smaller than it is supposed and in some instances won't come out any biger than 1 pixel in size.


I have shut the computer several times and switched the current off fully for around 2 minutes each time.


I hope you can fix the problem quickly please.


I love and fully recommend this program to the members on a Sim Car site that I am an administrator on and wish to thank all of the production team and all those members who have made such valuable contributions to make this an awesome and easy to use delight.

It's new! The font size, in pixels, is now based on the image's DPI just like every other (non-mspaint) image editing software out there. But you can choose "Fixed" to go back to the old behavior.


You can also set the default from Settings -> Tools.

Ignore the typo. I've already flagged it ?
