Does this also annoy you? (about Toolbox size)


Recommended Posts

You paint a nice thin line, maybe in size 2; and then starts to erase a part

of it that you don't like. When you change to the Rubber tool, it's now also

in shape 2; making it very hard to erase your thin line (same size).

'what if the tools remembered their size of it's last use, so that your pencil

could be size 2 and your rubber size 15 on the same time.

I want your opinion...

Ok, that was a short and concise answere...

I have tablet computer whish make it easy for me to draw nice lines i paint.Net

When editing photos, as most people do whith this software you don't notice this little "hurdle".

Is it a feature that is hard to make?

actually pyrochild is correct

Toolbar

Decrease brush width by 1 [

Decrease brush width by 5 Ctrl + [

Increase brush width by 5 Ctrl + ]

Thanks, didn't thought of shortcut keys for this matter...

But i still think that for users that use Paint.Net as a sheet to paint/draw on;

it would still be good with tools remembering their size, as an enhancement to the user experience.

I started this thread, as I want to help the Paint.Net software to be become even better.

I'm sorry for the Headline of this thread, if I can I would change it right away; into a nicer one.

Sorry for the negative tone of it...

Even if you don't think this would enhance the program;

would it be hard to implement this feature for us who does?

I think the problem is what you mean by "remembering" the setting from the previous use. Is that the current session? Is that remember it from the one time you used that function last year? Also, based on what you are saying, there is a context issue. You set one tool at 2, and want another at 15. Fine. Is that always true? Will you always want that tool to be at 15 when you use it? If not, then remembering the tool setting will become the problem next time. It doesn't actually make it an enhancement if it just forces a change of a value at a different time than it does now.

It would absolutely be good enough if the tools remember their size for only the current session.

Next time you run Paint.NET, as you say, you would probably want a different size on your tools,

so they can still have the preset value, size 2.

Or maybe an option to set your own preset values would be suitable, so that your Rubber isn't size 2

when you start. It would be nice, even though it's not so important.

The important thing is to reduce the number of times you need to change the size of your tools,

so it's only done when it's really needed.

If you paint, you mostly work with small pencils, ranging from maybe size 1-7 and when erasing you seldom

need a smaller rubber then size 10. With this feature in the program, when sizes of the tools is set to your

liking; you only change the size when you need a smaller pencil/brush and not because you just need to use

another tool with a different size for a short time, before heading back to your pencil/brush.
