Filename, Date, Time on print-out

But it does not  work.

 

Use the Header and Footer options to specify the information you need. {Print.Name} will append the filename, but I haven't found a keyword for Date and Time. Suggest you manually append these as simple strings.

 Don’t worry. Plugins are supported for the Store release. You just have to install them in a different location. Go to your Documents folder, create a folder called “paint.net App Files” (no quotes though), and then create a folder for each plugin type: Effects, FileTypes, and Shapes. And then put your plugins into each folder just like you’re used to with the Classic release. This does mean that plugins are installed per-user, mind you.

Thanks ardneh, unfortunately that did not help either. Can you give me the whole thread? It might perhaps help me further.


In the instructions on the page where I downloaded the files from stood:  After a restart of Paint.NET you will find the plugin at Menu-> Effects-> Tools -> Print It.

I have no TOOLS there. Does anyone know anything about that?

Puh! Now I have succeeded in making a Tools-choice in Effects in the app. But say the joy that lasts forever. The function is incomparably slow and in the end I have to close the program in the Taskmanager. To me, it seems to be something wrong somewhere. The Documents>paint.net App Files>Effekts consist of the files in the enclosed picture. Is that ok or is it wrong?

If I remember correctly, The 'Print It' plugin will freeze up with some printer drivers.

I recommend using IrfanView to print your images. It will give you the print options you're looking for.

That is correct.

Try putting the OptionBasedLibrary files outside the Effects folder as the plugin author instructs.

 

No, don't do that. Martin gave bad instructions.

All the files need to be placed into the Effects folder.

Unfortunately, this is a tricky way to work around the problem with the print it-plugin. Does anyone have a solution directly linked to Paint.net? What does the author Martin Osieka say himself concerning the problems i discribe above?

Martin Osieka has not been active on the forum since 2017.
