Pencil tool deleting surrounding area upon use


Recommended Posts

Good evening everyone, 

 

Tonight I've ran into a rather peculiar issue that seemingly came out of nowhere, as paint.net was operating just fine up until a few minutes ago. I'm working with the pencil tool that comes with paint.net, and upon placing a pixel with it, it seems to delete sections of the image I'm working on in a berth of 3x3 pixels, while also making one side of the affected area, one more pixel out, seemingly disappear while I apply pressure to the mouse. I have no idea what's causing this issue, and having reinstalled paint.net and my plugins already, am at a loss for what could be causing this all of a sudden. Stranger still is that it doesn't seem to do it consistently.

 

I've added a gif version of what's going on below. Whenever it reverts to the pixels being there is when I hit undo to try again. Any experience with this?

Can you show us a screenshot of the pencil tool's settings?  Like this:

Also, go into Settings :Settings: , click the Diagnostics tab, and click the "Copy to clipboard" button... paste that into a message here.

 

Thanks!

There seems to be an issue with the blending code somewhere, I'm investigating more ...

 

For now, you can work around this by setting the blend mode to Overwrite in the toolbar. It's a decent workaround if you're using the pencil tool with opaque colors.

 

This also affects other tools, but not ones where the blending is Overwrite, or if the rendering of the tool is effectively using Overwrite (e.g. the Move Selected Pixels tool).

I confirmed it happens in 5.0 but not in 4.3.12. So it's definitely a new bug that none of us caught -- I guess we don't work with tiny 2-pixel wide images often enough :)

Ooh, does that make this the first obscure bugfix since releasing version 5?

 

Nah there's been about a handful. But they've all been small and niche, thankfully.
