Variation of window restore bug


Recommended Posts

I have dual monitors. The primary is landscape and the secondary is portrait. When the last location of paint.net is on my primary monitor, it always starts with the correct position and size. If it is closed while on my secondary monitor, then the height and width are transposed the next time I open paint.net. Not a big deal, but I thought that you might want to be aware of the issue.

Thanks,

Rob

Paint.Net originally sized to 1000 X 500:

After exiting and restarting Paint.NET the size is transposed to 500 X 1000:

This does not happen on the primary monitor.

I guess a picture is worth a thousand words. :)

Hope this is clearer than my previous post.

Thanks!

Ahh. That's currently by design. If Paint.NET determines it is on a "tall" screen, it will try and make itself "tall" as well, and the new image size should also default to 600 x 800 instead of 800 x 600.

This was implemented way back in v1.0 so that a Tablet PC that was rotated would have Paint.NET start up in a natural fashion.

That makes sense. As I mentioned earlier, it's no big deal, just a point of curiosity. :) I also have a quick work around. I simply close and reopen a second time and it's back to the original size.

Thank you for the quick response. Paint.NET is a fantastic resource!

Thanks again,

Rob
