[Feature request] no template on program start


Recommended Posts

Today I found out about default starting settings at: Settings > Tools . It is awesome and very useful . I would like to suggest a new feature I think is lacking tho: Start Paint.NET in "closed document" mode. Usually I start PdN by its shortcut and not through picture > context menu. Mostly because I always have a bunch of pictures on my desktop and it is faster to just open the program while I look for the picture I want to edit and then, drag and drop it ( totally love this feature ) . Thing is, PdN starts with a bright white blank document that usually blinds me for a second, most of time I work at night. So the natural dark background of the program itself, is preferred.

 

That's it. So thank you and keep the good work !

Hi @4goTTen21

Create a blank document with color 727272 and save it to your desktop. When you click on it, it will bypass the white screen that blinds us.

Use this shortcut to open Paint.Net and your eyes will thank you every time :)


Good Solution.. Just one tiny problem:

Why is that a problem if the starting image is on the desktop? It it's always the same picture, and it's the same place on the desktop, no "look[ing] for the picture" is required. It's about as easy as clicking on the shortcut.

You could also edit the Paint.NET shortcut to open the template file when it launches.

 

Yes but I guess once I drag a picture to Paint.net it still ask for "open file / add new layer, etc" . I know I'm being so picky, so sorry but I get distracted so often by this tiny annoyances
