autoscrolling out of the window makes huge selections or moves

Scrolling or moving past the edge of the canvas (pane) begins scrolling even when I'm still long in the canvas (pane), that is several pixels inside the drawing window, and it does not scroll progressively, but goes like a rocket. This has hit me several times. I suggest it starts scrolling only when definitively having left the canvas (pane), several pixels outside of the drawing pane, and slowly.

 

Could be it was intended to do scrolling when a few pixels outside the drawing area, and missing the sign on the test?

Please makes this an issue for an upcoming version. For me as new to Paint.NET, and old to programming, it looks like a sign error on checking the distance from the mouse position to the visible area border, (TRLB or 00WH comparisons with mouse position or (mouse offset from TL)). The absolute value of the distance checked seems right. And please control the scroll speed if it is not already controlled but missed because of the "second phrase" of this post.

"autoscrolling out of the window makes huge selections or moves"

This behaviour is unchanged in Paint.Net version 4.3.8.

In addition I noticed that it is not entirely clear where is the hot spot in the Hand cursor. The run-away occurs always, but depending on whether I grap the nub with the finger tip, the palm, or the lowest part of the hand (dont know how in english, "Handgelenk"), it occurs a few pixel nearer or more distant from the window border, but always inside of the window.

I never said I'd be making a change for 4.3.8.

 

4.3.x is in what's called "maintenance mode". Only important fixes and low-risk changes are being made for the 4.3.x releases while I work on the next big update (v4.4).

 

A change like this is higher risk and would have to go into 4.4 or 4.4.x, but I have not said yet whether I'll be doing this.
