Oma usually puts usernames in "quotes" or CAPS to denote that she's talking about someone on here.

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Alright oma, I've made a special build of Curves+ just for you. It's version 0.2.5. (I just stuck a 0 in front :roll: )

If there's an error saving a curve, it will pop up a big, detailed message about why. Just take a screenshot and post it in here.

Could you change the way how control settings are handled: so that the curve(s) and check box states would NOT be stored for next use when I click Cancel? If you wonder what I mean then: open curves+, make some sort of curves, click cancel; then open again - curves are changed although I didn't accept it last time. It's quite annoying.

I truly and honestly don't know what you are talking about.

A) That sort of thing is handled by Paint.NET, not individual plugins (unless they're not written correctly)

B) I never changed anything regarding setting persistence when I modified the original Curves effect source code. Any odd behavior in that department in Curves+ will be in Curves as well. Which it isn't.

C) It definitely does not save it on my computer when I click Cancel. Can't reproduce this at all.

Are you sure it hasn't been saved from a previous click of OK? Remember that if you click OK once, those settings will be the default every time after until you either restart Paint.NET or click OK again with different settings. You can click Cancel a million times, and the defaults will always be whatever it was set to when you last clicked OK.

This is correct that original Curves behaves identically. But knowing how busy Rick is, I hoped you could fix it faster.

Here is repro steps:

The real-life situation is that I'm processing several images one after another and sometimes want to try same settings for different images, with little fine-tuning.

1. Say I made following curve suitable for my pic1:

Clicked OK.

2. Now I want to try the same curve on my pic2. Open Curves+:

Notice that check boxes are already changed, though that's not my main complaint.

3. With Curves+ still open, I want to fine-tune the previous curves because result didn't look that good. Let's bend the Red curve downwards.

My image still looks bad, so I click Cancel (in order to restart Curves+, with "good" settings from pic1).

4. Open Curves+ again. Although I clicked Cancel in step 3 after modifying red curve, it still returns my "screwed up" curves! :x

Note (to make it more confusing): If I click Reset before fine-tuning (step 3) then the further settings are not saved when followed by Cancel and step 4 really returns the curve I made @ step1 - as it always should. But I don't want to click Reset before fine-tuning previous "good" curve.
