Few Gripes with Version 3 Beta 1


Recommended Posts

I realize that this is still a beta version but I wish to to mention a few things...

-> The Selection Tools

Hitting the escape key no longer gets rid of the selection.

-> The Unsaved Changes dialog

Whoops sorry, made a mistake here. so it's not S and D. I guess it's the S and N key. Can the dialog at least somehow indicate these keys.

What's with this Save, Don't Save? What happened to the simple Yes, No, Cancel. I have been able to work very effeciently with Paint.NET by using in some case just the keyboard. The Y and N keys for Yes, No were at least more seperated but the S and D keys for Save, Don't Save are too close together resulting in more accidental hitting the D when I meant to hit S.

-> Under the File Menu, for Acquire

What happened to Acquire from selection, has it been moved? I can't find it anymore.

Other than that, love the program. Just please don't lose sight of the fact that the keyboard is also a very important tool to a designer/artist along with the mouse.

There is some discrepancy here...

Acquire from selection--> Edit->Paste in to New Image

Steps:

  • Draw some scribbles, whatever in Paint.NET
    Do a rectangle select
    Hit the Print Screen key on your keyboard
    Perform Edit->Paste in to New Image

How can we distinguish between a rectangle select and acquire from clipboard?

Just like any other Windows dialog ... if you started it via the keyboard, the access keys will be underlined. If the access keys are not underlined, which is what happens if the dialog was invoked via the mouse or other methods, then you can press Alt to show the access keys.

I don't see what you're asking ... if it's on the clipboard, then Paste will grab it.

Maybe I need to go back and look at the older Paint.NET versions, but I thought there used to be an "acquire from selection" and "acquire from clipboard".

Thank you for your help.

Nope, there was never a "acquire from selection." Just do copy, then paste in to new image (used to be acquire from clipboard). WIth the keyboard shortcuts it's nice and fast, Ctrl+C then Ctrl+Alt+V.
