Feature request: Permit Paint.NET to open only 1 image/project per 1 program window


Recommended Posts

When opening several images/projects they stack in top panel: https://postimg.cc/646bJkF0/83becdd5

It might be useful but sometimes I forget I opened many other files and that leads to confusion: why program asks me

waht to fo with file Z when I was editing file X.

Suggestion: Option Permit Paint.NET to open only 1 image/project per 1 program window.

Example:

 

1) I opened file X

2) I am trying to open file Z

2.1) If file X has no unsaved changes - close it and open file Z

2.2) If file X has unsaved changes - ask me waht to do with it: Save or cancel changes AND open file Z

The proposed behaviour would be very irritating to me, and I suspect many other users of Paint.NET.

@dmt05 Why do you forget that you "opened many other files" and why does it "lead to confusion"? Surely the presence of the image thumbnails at the top of the Paint.NET window is the reminder that you have multiple files open.

I initilaly though that PaintNet has https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_digital_interface

so when i opened new file i did not notice it opened in same window.

 

When I was closing the current file, PaintNet asked if want to save other files that were apparently changed..

Thinking I saved the main file, i choosed "not save".

But that resulted in not saving the changes to all files(?) 


If my idea is not good, maybe devs can add option for PaintNet to open in SDI/MIDI?

Now it is MDI - several files in one window

SDI (1 window  1 file)  - to make sure I will not affect other files in current windows.

1. Your link has nothing to do with Paint.Net . 

 

2. Just because you can't handle the free Paint.Net program,

you don't have to demand that it be adapted to your own inability.

 

3. I recommend reading here first . -> https://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/index.html
