Looking for a plug-in; search results didn't help

Recommended Posts

Looking for a plug-in but searches of the forum didn't help me much.


Has anyone created a plug-in that allows you to link layers together so that you can cut/copy/paste/move elements from all layers at once but keep them on their own layers?


I have a master file for my business logo that has a background, text and outline elements each on separate layers.  Occasionally, I'll need to move the pieces around to make different business artwork layouts for displays, banners, etc.  I also experiment with copies of each layer - blur effects, color adjustments, and the like - as I refine the design and get better at using PdN.  Linking the layers of the parts and moving them all at once would make it a lot easier and faster than having to do the same procedure three times and then fiddle with the alignment on each one.

"Plugins - Publishing ONLY!" means that general questions don't go here.  I've moved this over to the general questions forum.  :)


The answer to your question is no, there hasn't been such a plugin, because there can't be.  Paint.NET's plugin architecture only allows a plugin to work on a single layer at a time.  Sorry about that.

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.
