Problems with eraser and GPU acceleration causing artifacts


Recommended Posts

Hi i love paint.net and find it essential to the work i do.

I only have two problems with the new version, when i am using hardware acceleration the screen flashes black and white and the mouse cursor leaves weird trails all over the screen turning off hardware acceleration fixes the problem so its not a big deal and its probably due to my laptop having two GPUs and using Nvidia optimus to switch between them.


my big problem though is the eraser tool, i do a lot of pixel artwork zoomed in very close with a size 1 eraser and the centering for the tool seems to be off slightly like i will have the circle almost completely over the pixel i want to erase but the pixel above or to the right will disappear instead.

For the artifacts, turn off Hardware Accelerated Rendering in the settings.


For erasing individual pixels, you should use the Pencil instead. Set the color to have 0 alpha, and then use the Overwrite blending mode in the toolbar.
