Better ergonomy with separate Canvas

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


I am new to this forum. I have registered specifically for this proposal and I hope it reaches someone with a word to say in the development of paint.net .


The tool has come in handy over the years, always a trusty little helper for my projects. However, always having to move the palettes and menus around every time I needed to reach the edge or corners of an image has been a nuisance since the very beginning.


I hope comparisons to Photoshop are not abhorred here, but Photoshop has went on to separate the window in which the canvas lays from the margins of it's main window - allowing for unhindered scrolling in the central section of the screen, while all the needed tools remain fixed on the edges. For me, this has been one of the best ergonomic decisions that Adobe could have done - the artist is done with moving windows around all the time, and it even looks much more orderly that way.


Is there anything similar in the works for paint.net ? If not, is there a compelling reason for it?

Scrolling past the edge of the canvas has been requested many times. See this list of feature requests http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/2940-popular-feature-requests/

You can turn off the utility windows using the F5, F6, F7 & F8 keys.
