Default empty image dimensions based off clipboard state

Hi there,


Paint.net is my go-to to annotate screenshots of Windows or other things I'm working on, to highlight sections, point arrows, etc.


The usual procedure is to

  • grab an image to clipboard
  • open Paint.Net
  • CTRL-N (which reads the clipboard image dimensions) which then replaces the default empty image (it's great that it does that!)
  • CTRL-P to paste my clipboard image.


It'd save me the CTRL-N if Paint.net's default empty image dimensions were already based off the clipboard image (if any) dimensions.


Alternatives might be, like Affinity Photo - which doesn't start with a default image; the CTRL-ALT-SHIFT-N keyboard shortcut that simply creates a new image with the contents of the clipboard.
