FileType plug-ins that load or save multiple documents?


Recommended Posts

Does there currently exist, or are there plans to have, any sort of interface that allows for the development of a file-type plugin that can load or save multiple documents at once? I could sure use this for my icon loading/saving plugin :)

There are no warranties whatsoever on my plug-ins. Use them at your own risk. You may redistribute them if you'd like, but I'd prefer you just link to the download on my site. Please do not modify and redistribute.

The FileType class gives you a Stream because it expects you to use only that for saving/loading.

What you need for icon saving/loading is the ability to open multiple workspaces associated with the same filename and save command, and to be able to group them together (logically and visually). Paint.NET just isn't made for that.
