[Feature] Always start with two layers

Recommended Posts

Whenever you open up paint.net, it always has one white-background layer as the default layer.

Then i start drawing and after a while i realize "if i did this on transparent background i could reuse it in so many places!". So i either have to manually erase the white background carefully around every corner or restart drawing.

It would be good if the default was two layers, one white background layer and one empty layer where you start drawing. I know it's super simple to just create a new one manually when you start, but i'm often in such a rush when opening up to start drawing that i always forget. :P

All good advice but it really comes down to a good habit of starting all projects with a new layer. Do you forget to add a new layer when you are adding more elements...?
