Hi there. I'm hoping that you can help me with the Parallel Lines and Patterns plugin, which I love and used all the time. The plugin stopped showing up in my render folder  following this upgrade. I have tried following the advice here by removing the files from my effects folder and copying new versions in multiple times, and it hasn't helped. I also can't see anything about it not working in my plugin errors.

 

I'm not very techy (the cross one bears from working in corporate all my life, where you have an IT dept. to take care of most issues!), so I really hope that someone can help and use plain language to explain what I need to do. 🤞 ☺️

Hi @AllegedStuffI guess you already got the advice in the plugins topic.

Because of changes in paint.net the OptionBasedLibrary files must now be placed in the Effects folder.

Or create a folder ParallelLines folder in the effect folder and copy ParallelLines .dll/.dlc and OptionBasedLibrary.dll/.dlc into this folder (this is the method Rick prefers).

Thanks so much, midora. I followed the instructions in the plugin pack, and didn't do that! But I will now given you're the second person to suggest this, and will try Rick's referred method. I so appreciate your help. Finger's crossed that it works. 😊

 

It worked! Thanks so much. 😊👍

We will say I cherish my privilege here and I apologize Mr.Brewster.. Please read my position carefully as I read that the HiDPI was fixed in 2017 under the planetoid topic.. If it was do you have any idea why I have a HiDPI issues with my 250 percent scaling.. I do need to work on my communication skills as well.. I pmed eer and he assuredd me there was nothing wrong with this plugin.. Toe head was quite helpful in many ways and I am sorry I expected EER to be the same.. I will let this rest as to not upset any one else.. Namaste

I think you're under the wrong impression about how these things work. These plugins are developed by people in their spare time, of their own generosity, and they don't owe you updates on any particular time line. There is no "stalling" here, it just hasn't happened. Stop being so entitled or you will not be on this forum for much longer. 

Please remove this comment Mr.Brewster.. It was written in haste and I apologize to all I may have offended..

Thank you for being patient with me.. Please check the topic planetoid and make sure nothing I have there is negative as well.. Remove my comments obviously at your discretion but please could planetoid be added to this list until fixed? Would that be the proper route to expedite a repair? I am not sure if I should pm you or publicly ask the queries..   I have posted my crash in the topic planetoid and moderators have responded that possible repairs are needed.. Pm me as much as you like that way my kamikaze lips do not get me banned from your forum.... Unless of course if that would break the rules no..

No. Planetoid was not broken by an update to PDN.

ImPS,EPS,AI.Open.Filetype.dll 1.0 https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/28078-postscript-filetype-plugin-ps-eps-ai/

 

Fixed

 

I will maintain this list as broken plugins are fixed or added if they are discovered broken.

Please feel free to post if you find a broken plugin.

The problem with 'PostScript' FileType Plugin (.PS, .EPS, .AI) is labeled as fixed,

but it does not work for me with Paint.net 4.3.10. 😏

 

I tried to copy the OptionBasedLibrary v0.6 .dll/.dlc (from the original Post) in the Effects folder as midora suggests,

but I still get this error message:😟

C:\Program Files\paint.net\FileTypes\ImPS,EPS,AI.Open.FileType.dll, Version 1.0.0.0

System.IO.FileNotFoundException: 
Could not load file or assembly 'OptionBasedLibrary v0.6, 
Version=0.5.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null'. 
Das System kann die angegebene Datei nicht finden.

 

Considering the other suggestion to create a sub-folder to the effect folder

I am not sure which name I have to choose for this folder 🤔

 

Any ideas how to open .epf-files with paint.net?

I think you mean of the FileTypes folder.

midora mentioned the Effects folder in his post.

 

Quote of the ImPS,EPS,AI.Open.FileType.ReadMe.txt :

 

- Copy the two files OptionBasedLibrary vX.X.dll/.dlc to the Paint.NET\ folder (NOT to Paint.NET\FileTypes\ !!!)

 

🤔

There have been many discussions about this on the forum.

 

THE README IS WRONG. DO NOT PUT THOSE FILES INTO THE PAINT.NET FOLDER.

 

@midora if you are still distributing a README file that has wrong instructions then you need to update it.

Thank you for clarifying this issue.
The Readme.txt is part of the zip file in this posting.

 

Nevertheless, the plugin issue is labeled as fixed, but it does not work for me still 🙄

It's a FileType, so the files go into the FileTypes folder. None of the files for a FileType plugins should ever go into the Effects folder. It literally won't be able to see or load them.

I'll make another attempt:

paint.net - folder:

  1. OptionBasedLibrary v0.6.dlc
  2. OptionBasedLibrary v0.6.dll

FileTypes - folder

  1. ImPS,EPS,AI.Open.FileType.dlc
  2. ImPS,EPS,AI.Open.FileType.dll

You mean like this... 🤔

 

Edit:
Just found @midora 's correct instruction in his posting:

 

  • Copy the two files OptionBasedLibrary vX.X.dll/.dlc to the Paint.NET\FileTypes\ folder
  • Copy the two files 'ImPS,EPS,AI.Open.FileType.dll/dlc' to the Paint.NET\FileTypes\ folder

 

(Previously I was referring to the Readme.txt.)

 

I have installed Ghostscript v. 9.56.1.

Paint.net opens an eps-file now 😃
