Request for Comments: What "settings" would you want? (v4)


Recommended Posts

So in Paint.NET v4 I'm planning on having the "settings" dialog finally. I was hoping to never need one, but there's just enough settings that people want to tweak that it makes sense now.

Here are the settings I'm planning for, just off the top of my head:

    * Configure the default Save As... file type (PNG vs. JPG, etc.)
    * Ability to disable "force thumbnail view" mode in WinXP.
    * Of course, I'll merge the "Choose Tool Defaults" and the updater settings into there.
    * And yes there will be a plugin/add-in manager.

What other things in Paint.NET would you like the ability to configure?

I think that would be a bit of overkill. Configurable shortcut keys would be great, but I don't think we need to ape other programs since we don't necessarily do anything like the other programs do.

Now, what I would like is the ability to assign a shortcut key to a plugin.

It would also be nice to set not only the default filetype, but also the default filetype settings (i.e. bitrate, color depth, etc.).

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

I don't know if this belongs in here but how about this:

-When you copy paste an image in PdN, it will automatically appear on a new layer.

- New options when copy pasting, additionally to "Keep canvas size" and "Enlarge Canvas", "Resize image to fit in canvas" (stretching) and "Resize image to fit in canvas with aspect ratio".

- When pasting something that has transprency in an existing layer, the transparency doesn't overwrite what's behind it.

- Have a more adjustable Anti-Alias for brushes and the eraser.

-- On the topic of, don't have the Brushs' Anti-Alias settings the same as the Eraser's.

- When zooming with the Mouse-wheel, zoom in/out by 10% exactly.

NB: "tails8762" is an old name that I don't go by anymore, but whatever.

Paint.NET already remembers the last settings for each file type -- I'm not sure I see how a section in the Settings would improve that.

That's what layers are for. Just paste into a new layer.

In Photoshop where you can deselect like a Render or some sort and than still have the full canvas of it in case you want to move it.
Re-read the first post...

Rick is asking what you would like to see in a configuration dialog....

I have no idea what you mean by this, unfortunately.

It has been said by ash, but I need to second it. Having a customisable startup cavas size will really be welcome :D

The other ideas will be welcome too, but I would appreciate this one most :wink:

Is it possible to define how many nubs you want if you use the Line/Curve tool?

And to define the relation of the size of the arrowhead to the arrowline? Sometimes the arrowhead is to big to harmonize with the line.

And to define the spaces between the dashes and dots?

# of nubs selection would be lovely and if Max means a tapered end for a line I'd like that as well. and if its possible I could most likely find a use for the dash and dots idea.

If you are going to natively implement brushes, to select the brush you want to start with. I don't know if this has been mentioned, but perhaps also a default prim/sec colour picker.
