Installing Plugins with Effect Installer 1.0

Recommended Posts

I don't mean to be critical, but wouldn't it be a good idea to give effect installer the capability to install filetype plugins too? And what about PDN's install location? 99% of the time, PDN is installed at C:\program files\Paint.NET, but what if users installed it in another folder? Perhaps an option to adjust where PDN is installed would be a good idea.

Just some ideas. :)

Win Vista and 7 have that (Right-click, Install) built-in.

I know, but XP doesn't.

Everyone note: I will be working on this occasionally. As for now, I'm going to be playing a bit of MW2.

I guess those are some good ideas. I'm also thinking about adding the capability of installing Fonts (mainly true type).

That won't be necessary. PDN v3.5.5 now detects new fonts when it's installed, and I have already have a bookmark on my computer to open the Fonts directory, paste the new font, and then PDN will detect the new one.

... and I have already have a bookmark on my computer to open the Fonts directory ...

Err, you mean like Utilities -> Manage Fonts? That's all it does: it launches the Fonts folder / control panel.

*smacks forehead* I completely forgot about that. I have gotten so used to doing it the long way around. :lol::roll:

Move or copy the plugin DLL into your paint.net\Effects\ folder and restart paint.net. It's that simple it doesn't really need an installer.
