Is there a centering Ruler for Paint.net?

Great detective work!

My file downloads records show that I downloaded the Paint.NET.3.30.zip update on April 13, 2008, but I do not have a download record of the Effects-MegaloPack.Paint.NET.v20.exe until November 29, 2011 and it does contain the Centerlines.dll, but that would give it a November 29, 2011 install date. The mystery continues and will look further later!

Note:
I ran a Microsoft Defender scan on the Effects-MegaloPack.Paint.NET.v20.exe today, and it did not indicate a problem.
So the issue is that it was an illegal distribution of 749 plugins.

Effects-MegaloPack.Paint.NET.v18 contains Centerlines.dll (from 14.06.2008).

Yes, plugins must be distributed with the permission of the authors.  I always got permission from the plugin authors in advance before publishing russian version of their plugins on the paint-net.ru site.

I don't want to seem Intrusive, but...

@Enormator is the author of plugins Centerlines.dll and Centerlines 2.dll (and some others).

@HyReZ, you got this plugin through a link from a topic Enormators Effects when the link was available.

Either way - it's never been officially released. That's why it doesn't show up in the Plugin Index.

Yes, the files Centerlines.dll and Centerlines 2.dll on the website getpaint.net officially were not published, but a saved copy of a topic tells that the files was available on another site.

Your detective skills are outstanding!

I was able to download a copy of Centerlines.dll and Centerlines 2.dll from the links that you provided from the Way Back Machine.
