Mike Ryan Posted September 27, 2012 Share Posted September 27, 2012 Currently, Paint.NET handles the forward and back buttons on a mouse as just that: forward and back buttons. This means they currently have some level of functionality in Paint.NET (such as filling the canvas with the secondary color when using the Paint Bucket), but they mostly go unused. What I would like is for them to be mapped to something a bit more useful, to potentially benefit those who have mice with these buttons on them. For instance, Notepad++ and other applications let you switch between open tabs in the application. If this were the model, the buttons on the mouse would let you cycle through the open images in Paint.NET. Web browsers use these buttons to move forwards and backwards in history for a tab. Using this model, the two buttons would be mapped to undo and redo. Either of these would be really great. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
