PDN is a raster-based program. If you'd like to do vector art, I'd suggest Inkscape. It's free, and a very good alternative to Adobe Illustrator.

Check it out at http://www.inkscape.org

BTW, I do believe Rick has future plans to make vector layers--that is, layers that would hold vector objects (including editable text).

I have absolutely no plans to do this. I simply said our rendering framework was flexible enough to allow for it.

I would NEVER use a paint program that doesn't support some form of vector drawing. Why? Because vector drawings/layers allow you to outline ANY raster objects for the purpose of precise antialiased vector selections. Really, there is no better way of doing this than using splines handles with curve, cusp, symetric, asymetric, curve, and line vector nodes.

Ok, so don't use Paint.NET then.

Ah! My mistake then.

Wow, what a user friendly community you've built. Instead of explaining how you would approach the needs of the community, in my case precise antialiased selections, you come back with 'thanks, and don't let the door hit you on the way out' type comment. I've read other comments here about posts being deleted due to feature requests, and other snide comments from the developers.

I guess you'll get things your way in the end. In other words I am left with a bad impression, and will tell people to steer clear of your product. Good job!

Wait a sec, Rick is probably just in a bad mood today...

That isn't true. That guy was just picking on rick, probably why he is in bad humor now...

From looking at your other posts, you are obviously a Photoshop/Paintshop user. Why are you even here?

Yeah it is actually a pretty good community. Especially when people have good attitudes and leave their elitism at the door. Which is almost always the case -- it's great! I think this forum's community is actually one of the best things about Paint.NET.

Instead of explaining how you would approach the needs of the community, in my case precise antialiased selections, you come back with 'thanks, and don't let the door hit you on the way out' type comment.

Oh you mean how I would approach the needs of your demand? Your comment consisted of, "I'm too good for a program that doesn't support my pet feature, and you're obviously too stupid to write a program that supports it!" I do not exist to satisfy your requirements. You can hire a maid for that. I write this program in my spare time, and release it for free. I pour thousands of hours into this thing. If you need a different tool, then use a different tool instead of insulting this one.

I've read other comments here about posts being deleted due to feature requests, and other snide comments from the developers.

Oh you mean the guy who came in picking a fight over airbrushes, or said the project was horrible and unprofessional because it lacked 8BF plugin support? If you come in with a snotty attitude and looking for a fight then don't expect a cheery, generic "customer support" style answer. Regular, honest feature requests are no trouble and are wholeheartedly welcome. Feature demands are completely ignored. I have no qualms over deleting posts and banning users who are rude and selfish. It's a forum for a paint program with a community of users who are trying to help each other out.

I guess you'll get things your way in the end.

Yes, I will. Seeing as how I'm the only person actually working on the development of the program. You're obviously oblivious to the history of the program, however. Almost every feature in 2.5 through 3.0 was added as a result of overwhelming community feedback. Tons of users asked for DPI settings -- they got it in 2.5. Same with color palette management, MDI, gradients, spline/bezier curves, radial blur, zoom blur, automatic update checking, and full localization support.

In other words I am left with a bad impression, and will tell people to steer clear of your product. Good job!

Ok bye! Good riddance.

It was my first time here and this is the response I get. Putting words in my mouth attempting to making me look bad, then kicking me out the door. You lost my support and now if anyone asks me about Paint.NET on any of the other communties I visit, I'll have nothing but negative comments to make. Good job, and good bye.

Yes, it was your first time here and look at the attitude you presented. I'd like to see the response you'd get if you walked into a restaurant, demanded a free whiskey, got denied, and then claimed "This is my first time here and look at the way you're treating me!"

If people need features which are not in Paint.NET, then by all means they should use other programs which have those features. Crazy Man Dan often recommends GIMP or other programs to forum members, and I have absolutely no problem with that.

You're welcome back anytime you have something reasonably polite and constructive to say.

Ok, now let's get back on topic.

man, im pretty n00by, somebody point me to where the "bezier" is.

What trickman said: right button dragging instead of left button.

Also, the status bar has help text that explains how to use each tool, which should prove useful.
