Outline Object

Recommended Posts

I am hurt, Pyro, that you have removed the text box! That was one of the most intuitive color choosers available. Perhaps a dual implementation in the future?

Meh, I was too lazy to type something into a text box, I like the color wheel better, but I have to admit it was handy to write hex codes in...

Hm. I'm gonna talk to Rick about that one, as I think that's definitely not something that should cause an exception...

(It was caused by you choosing a partially transparent color in Paint.NET before opening the plugin)

It would be quite easy to write a workaround for it, except that I ... kind of... got my laptop confiscated, and haven't been backing up my source as often as I should. :oops:

Sorry, seems to be happening after I used drop shadow with blur setting=1, I hope you can get your laptop back soon!!

Hey pyro. Just a random thank you for this plugin. I use it a lot, and really appreciate all the time you put into your stuff.

Random indeed. Unless, that is, you've been talking to Ash or Mike Ryan.

Suggestions:

1) Adjust the 'Width' inputs to only allow 1 thru 10. Anything above 10 is really overkill and will most likely never be used.

not really I use it all the time when creating a sticker effect or when I have a larger picture. I like how it goes to 100 I've used 100 many times before lol

like for this

Is this plugin meant to function with Paint.NET v3.22? When I try to use it, I get these error details:

File: C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\Effects\Outline Object.dll

Effect Name: pyrochild.effects.outlineobject.OutlineObject

at pyrochild.effects.outlineobject.OutlineObject.OnCreatePropertyCollection()

I am using Windows XP and I am running on 512mb RAM. I will try restarting my computer to see if that will help...

Edit: I restarted my computer. That didn't help.

Here's the details of the automatically generated file that popped up when Paint.NET crashed (after attempting to use this plugin):

No, but it is with the latest version, v3.36. You need to update before you [rule=7]receive any more help[/rule].

You definitely need to be using the latest version of Paint.NET. The crash report you posted was definitely caused by Outline Object, but the crash log (pdncrash.log) is not related to my code at all. It was probably either already there from an earlier crash, or a lucky coincidence

I'm unable to download this plugin. I can download other plugins, so the server is up and running. When I click the plugin link, I am redirected to another message within the Outline Object topic.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Pyrochild has put all his plugins in one download, and redirect to that. You just download them all, and you get Outline AND many other nice plugins. Just install them all. You won’t regret it.

Hey guys!

First of all, Pyro, thanks for letting us use and have this great add for Paint.NET, I love the paint.net and I love the adds and stuff u can get for it and it's so simple, but pro.

I've got a problem...

When I draw the line (or anything else, like text etc.) and use outline I get really weird lines surrounding the main line that's being outlined or if I use text... and since the picture can spoke for 1000 words, here it is:

"""""""""

When I decided to create a sample of that weirdness, I got it out, and when I used the red outline, everything was perfectly fine... LOL, I know, I sound crazy, but if anyone will have the problem, people, just try it for 50 times and if it won't work... then write... here is the pic.:

I solved my problem but still I don't know what was wrong...

Share on other sites

not working again... :evil: :evil:

It was working, before I reinstalled windows :?

Share on other sites

first make sure you have the most updated version of paint.net

second the most updated version of the plugin.

third are you sure you are using the same outline each time. there are several effects with that name.

are you sure its pyro's outline that's not working or is it Boltbaits? as those kind of problems seem very similar to the bugs that were fixed in BoltBaits plugin. :wink: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=22819

Share on other sites

I'm sorry guys, I was using BoltBait's outline, not pyro's, I messed up everything very much...

I had newest version of PDN and older version of BB'S outline, I guess that's why it wasn't working...

then I thought that updated I've BB'S outline, instead I've updated pyro's xD

I am sorry for everything... I've downloaded BoltBait's Plugin Pack and replaced everything and it works now!

Thanks for help, regards deejaytu
