Offline help available?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


Just started with Paint.NET after umpteen years of "evaluating" Graphic Workshop, and am happy with it so far.  My old XP system died, after 9 or 10 years, and I've now got a nifty new 2-core 64 bit system with Win 7 for about half what I paid for the old one.


When downloading the installer, the page implied there was a manual which could also be downloaded for offline use.  However, when I clicked the link for that, I got directed to the FAQ and then to here.  Did I misread the page, and the forums are it for help?


Two other points while I'm here -- and my apologies if I'm guilty of hijacking my own topic.


1) I can't see any way of setting up a forum profile.  Do I have to have a certain number of posts before I can do that, as is the case with some other support forums? Avast (anti-virus), where I've been active for many years, requires 20 posts before a new member can edit his profile or send IMs, to reduce spam problems.


2) This is sort of a wish-list request for the next (or some future) version which I couldn't find brought up by searching.  A directory tree panel would be a handy addition, to simplify moving completed work from within the program


Thanks and best.


(Edit) Found the profile setup myself, thanks anyway.

Yes I think you have misread the installer message. There are other resources available, like YouTube and other Paint.NET forums (this is the official forum). You might also have a look at the online documentation here: http://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/

If you're interested I've written an ebook titled 'Mastering Paint.NET'. You'll find a link to it in my signature.
