Sorry, Paint.Net has encountered an unhandled exception and must close.

Recommended Posts

I am increasingly getting this message, usually after I have spent quite a long time working on an image. It always occurs when I am hitting edit and undo, and always on the third key press. It seems to be happening more after every update, but not consistently, as I still sometimes complete long and complex tasks without it happening. Any ideas please? It is irritating and very frustrating.

I've tried, and I'm not being allowed to do it. This has just happened again a few minutes ago, I got a page of crash logs at first, but when i tried to work from it, they just disappeared.

Open the Settings dialog file: then go to the Diagnostics tab and hit the Copy to Clipboard button. Paste the results here.

I've had a few reports of this crash -- I'll look into it and see if I can get fix in for 5.0.3

Thank you, that would be very helpful. When it happens after doing over three quarters of a complex image, it can be very frustrating indeed.
