Narrow image bug

Recommended Posts

I love paint.net, used it for years and was really glad to see there's finally an update.

However, I'm surprised to see the only major bug that bothers me hasn't been fixed.. I can't be the only one that notices it.


To replicate the issue, create a new image with dimensions 1px by 500px,

Fill it in with a colour,

Zoom in to 2550% (occurs at some other random zoom levels too)

Scroll to the bottom of the image,

With the select tool, try and select the bottom of the image.. - it selects random chunks.


The way I get around it in day to day life is to stretch the image much wider.. do my work, and then shrink it back down again to 1px

(which is a big pain).


This bug doesn't just occur when it's 1px, it can be 5 or 10 sometimes too.

Bug confirmed

Not exactly a major bug, as most of us work in two dimensions :roll: (but it's a bug that needs squashing nonetheless)

No, Paint.NET is not spyware...but, installing it is an IQ test. ~BoltBait

The current version is 3.5.11, and has been released with the express purpose of laying the groundwork for updating to 4.0.  We're all very excited to see version 4 soon.


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.
