File operations slow since last PaintDotNet update (4.0?)

Recommended Posts

The main thing I use Paint Dot Net for is editing Textures for Minecraft. I have one file with layers for all the different ore textures and stone textures I've made/borrowed (with premission)/altered, and when I need a new one, I copy the layer, save the base image as a ".pdn", then save as a ".png".

At this point is has about 80 layers, and the .pdn is nearly 2 megs in size. I wouldn't think it would be a problem and prior to the last time Paint dot net updated, a save operation took about ten seconds.

Now it is taking upwards of ten minutes. 


EDIT: First off, version is 4.0.5288.36565

Secondly, may not be so much file operations as a file operations which involve changes in numbers of layers, IE: opening a multilayer file, or merging layers to save. copying and adding layers does not appear to cause any problems.

80 layers and 10 minutes? How big is the image, in pixels? (or, how big are the layers?)


There's a known performance regression with a large number of layers, but I didn't expect to see 80 layers take 10 minutes :O
