tab thumbnail images missing

Recommended Posts



Since updating to PDN 4 (on Win7Pro-32) a few days ago, thumbnail images have been missing from the tabs. Each one is simply represented by a small grey/blue ring (see attachment). The drop down list shows file names, as does the windows taskbar list, but no images. Apart from this the update is working well for me.


Any suggestions?

Looks to me like the images are still trying to load. 


Would you mind to post your computer specifications here so we can try to sort it out.


Another option is to try 4.0 since you are still on the beta & there have been a few fixes since then ;)

^  This.


What happens if you open a single smaller image?

I can't tell how many images you've opened. It could be that you've opened a lot of them, and paint.net is backlogged on rendering all of their thumbnails. Or maybe your computer is REALLY slow or something. I don't have enough information to diagnose this.
