Copy/pasting not functioning properly

Recommended Posts

With the latest update of (4.2.1), images I paste from Sai into PDN have developed strange and severe colorshifting problems that do not occur when going from Sai or PDN to MS Paint. Printscreen seems to work fine, so I'm not sure what it's reading the the copy made is Sai that's causing it to error out. Additionally, transparency from PDN to Sai is breaking in strange ways that were not seen before. This behavior persists past closing and reopening the program.


It particularly sucks because before the update the only issue I had (transparency not being preserved going from SAI to PDN) was easily circumvented by making a copy of the image as a PSD. I can't work around my entire image being dramatically colorshfted from dark purple-based with blue/pink accents to brighter red-brown with yellow/purple accents. I can share a screenshot, but I'd need time to quickly edit them since they're NSFW.


I'm using Windows 7, 3.50GHz, 16gb of RAM. This is the first problem I've had with PDN in literal years of using the same computer, and I do not have the money to replace not only a computer but also all the software and hardware I use for my job that would break if I upgraded to a new OS. If this is an issue with the OS age, I'd like to know some way to get the last functional version back.

Since I don't have PaintTool SAI, I need you to gather some data for me so that I can debug this.


See the instructions here:


(unfortunately that person never responded ...)


So you 1) do a copy operation in PaintTool SAI, then 2) use the instructions above to export the contents of the clipboard to a file, and then 3) give me that file.


I can then take that file and import its contents into the clipboard on my system, and then I can look at it and see what Paint.NET may be doing wrong (or what SAI is doing wrong).
