Duplicate Entries

Recommended Posts



Can anyone explain why I have got two entries in my menus for some items? For example, in Effects > Tools, I have two entries for Grid Warp..., Liquify..., Smudge... and Twist... As far as I can see, there is only one DLL for each of these functions. Does make the listings rather long!


Many thanks,

It means you have duplicated the plugins into your Effects Folder at some time.  Find your effects folder and delete the duplicates :)  The Effects Folder is found in the paint.net folder in programs.

@BDP, I dare say you are using the Classic version paint.net and the plugins you listed above were already in the Effects folder (C:\Program Files\paint.net\Effects). The next time you installed plugins using @pyrochild's installer, you used the default 'Install only for Me (Classic and Store)' option. Another Effects folder was automatically created in your Documents folder (...\Documents\paint.net App Files\Effects).

Just delete the duplicate DLLs in one of the two folders.
