Maximize->Restore Down results in taller Paint.Net window


Go to solution Solved by Rick Brewster,

Recommended Posts

Since I upgraded to Paint.Net 5.0, every time I restore down after maximizing, the resulting window is 31 pixels taller (growing down). Doesn't seem to matter what (if anything) is loaded, nor where the Paint.Net window is, nor its starting size. Goes right off the bottom of the screen after a few iterations. Windows 10, dual monitors placed vertically. Not really a big deal, just kinda weird.

 

EDIT: It also happens when I restore the Paint.Net window after being minimized.

I was getting a few different reports about this, and I think I found the culprit. It was a change in .NET 7.

 

PDN v5.0.1 should fix this. Let me know if it still behaves weirdly after the next update, in other words.

Upon updating to 5.0, when the Paint.NET window is maximized, I cannot drag it from the titlebar to restore and move it.
Oddly enough, this doesn't happen on my primary monitor, only my other two. Also, when restoring the Paint.NET window after maximizing by dragging it to the top of my screen, the titlebar clips above my monitor by about 20 pixels.

@Pyrian and/or @PureAndy, if either of you would be willing to try a build of Paint.NET with what I believe is the fix, I'd very much appreciate the verification that this is indeed fixed before I roll it out to everyone.

 

Here is an installer for "5.0.1 alpha build 8418": ...

 

And here's a portable ZIP if you'd prefer: ...

 

Go here for a build that has both fixes:

Hi Rick, hope you don't mind me chiming in here - I too was experiencing the same issue with the window-creep and I can confirm that the 5.0.1 alpha build fixes it on my system - which is a dual-monitor setup on an RTX3090, running latest version of Windows 10.

The alpha partially fixes the problem for me. I still have the issue where I can't drag the window when it's maximized on my non-primary monitors. Upon rearranging my monitors in the windows settings, though, so that monitor 1 is in the middle, monitor 2 is on the right, and monitor 3 is on the left, I can correctly drag the window on monitors 1 and 3.

Try the alpha I posted here, it's newer and has both fixes:
