"Fit" terminology on Print dialog

Recommended Posts

I'm a fairly new user of Paint.NET. Overall, I'm very impressed with the functionality and usability. It is an excellent program.


I was recently printing an image that was in a very wide aspect ratio, and I found that the image was cropped on the sides even the "Fit Picture To Frame" checkbox was already selected.  I was puzzled because I interpreted "Fit" as meaning "cause the entire picture to fit onto the page".


On a whim, I unchecked the box, and the image was then actually fitting onto the page.


I'm not sure if this is a bug where the function is reversed, or if it is just a matter of semantics.

If the latter, maybe a clearer description of the function caused by the checked box would be "Expand and crop image to eliminate any border"?
