Something necessary for text editing

Recommended Posts

yeah ctrl+v does work. i wonder what happened last time, a picture was pasted instead. I must not have text copied.

Ctrl+V works when you have the text tool selected and have set an insertion point (i.e. you have the blinking cursor).

But i thought the tools were the most basic functions of text built into windows and to disable them would require further programming. I did not know.

I'm afraid you're misunderstanding how Paint.NET and Windows work. There's no facility built in to Windows that provides a rich text editor, especially not in the way that we require one (right smack in the middle of a bitmap). The text editing that Paint.NET currently has was written completely from scratch by Chris Trevino a year and a half ago. It is limited in functionality because of the time constraints we had. To upgrade it to include everything you're asking for is something I have been planning to do for awhile but is also something that will require significant time to do (probably several weeks).
