EricRS Posted December 25, 2020 Share Posted December 25, 2020 (edited) I'd like to make two feature requests that are slightly related. Strictly speaking, they are probably a nice to have but these would be useful to my workflow. Working on a .pdn file as an original I use various derivatives in creating intermediary files and final output files. Such intermediaries/derivatives are for example a smaller resolution of the original file and a final output file in .png or .jpg format used for “release”. Saving a file in a different file format changes the current file name being edited; unsurprisingly of course, but discarding the changed file under edit and returning to the original .pdn file takes a little extra work (as a side effect the changed filename is added to the recently used list). I usually use separate directories for this. I also use separate directories as a differentiator for files with the same file name and as a result I cannot see from the name displayed after the paint.net icon which file I am editing. Therefore I’d like to request: (possibly optional setting) which displays the filename prepended by its complete pathname. It would then be appropriate that full names be displayed in the recently used list as well. Add “Save a copy As” as a command option to the File menu to save under a different name or format; after execution returning to the original (.pdn) file. Eric Update 27/12: Based on the first two responses below and my rethinking, I'd like to amend my requests and extend No. 2 with 2.b. My two requests are now as follows: (possibly optional setting) which displays the filename prepended by its complete pathname*. It would then be appropriate that full names be displayed in the recently used list as well. a. Add “Save a copy As” as a command option to the File menu to save under a different name or format; after execution returning to the original (.pdn) file. b. Do not add the file name used in the "Save a copy As" command to the recently used list. ___ * I didn't see this at first but I've come to the realisation that this will probably require some "real estate restructuring" at the top with respect to the area for the filename.
