Cursor Lag

Recommended Posts

I haven't used Paint.net in a little over a few months and the newest update comes out and I am experiencing a "Cursor lag" that makes using the program impossible. Basically when I used any tool or drag my cursor through the image I am editing the tool cursor is behind my regular cursor by an inch or two and it is overall slow.  I have uninstalled Paint.net and reinstalled it, along with repairing the program, and restarting my computer. Occasionally on startup Paint.net will run fine but as soon as I load in an image and start working it slowly degrades back to lagging and stuttering cursor movement. Has anyone experienced this problem or know how to fix it?

Try disabling the  'Hardware accelerated rendering (GPU)'  option in the Paint.NET settings.




Also , do you have an Nvidia graphics card, and have any G-Sync features enabled?

(September 25th, 2023)  Sorry about any broken images in my posts. I am aware of the issue.

This is a late update, but after about two days of it not working I downloaded GIMP and then Paint.net went back to working without me messing with G-sync or anything. I honestly think my Paint.net was upset I hadn't used it in so long and got jealous over the new fancy GIMP and came crawling back, but thanks for the help guys!
