Plugin folders under user profile instead of program files

Recommended Posts

I'd like it if Paint.net's plugin folders were under the user profile, inside AppData.

Currently, the default method of trying new plugins is a bit of a pain, since every time you copy or delete the plugins, you have to go throug UAC.

Personally, I have made a symlink from under Paint.net's folder to my profile, but this only works on single-user machines. If anyone else wanted to do the same, they could not. Additionally, every time I update Paint.net, I have to remake the symlink because the updater replaces it with a normal folder.
