You can call Services.GetService<PaintDotNet.AppModel.IAppInfoService>().UserDataDirectory for effect plugins, this does not exist for FileType plugins unfortunately.

Could you provide a code sippet because

 

                configFolder = Services.GetService<PaintDotNet.AppModel.IAppInfoService>().UserDataDirectory;
 

just throws the exception: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

So some object is needed first.

 

Worst case I have to go back to

 

                string mydocuments = Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.MyDocuments);
                configFolder = Path.Combine(mydocuments, "Paint.NET User Files");

protected override void OnSetRenderInfo(EffectConfigToken parameters, RenderArgs dstArgs, RenderArgs srcArgs) 
{
     string userDataPath = this.Services.GetService<PaintDotNet.AppModel.IAppInfoService>().UserDataDirectory;

     if (!Directory.Exists(userDataPath))
     {
	Directory.CreateDirectory(userDataPath);
     }
}
Any instance method in the Effect class should have access to the Services property.

                string mydocuments = Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.MyDocuments);

                configFolder = Path.Combine(mydocuments, "Paint.NET User Files");

 

Which only works for English language versions of Paint.NET.

Ok, it works for me in OnSetRenderInfo but not in CreateInitialToken.

Seems the Services object in Effects is not ready at this time.

I like to use the path in CreateInitialToken to allow 'user default values' for the effect.

For sure I do not like a static solution, but if the path is not accessible...
