Plugin installed but not accessible

Recommended Posts


I'm new to Getpaint but am finding my way around it O.K., however, I have a problem with a plugin (to create text in a circle or an arc)

I have downloaded and installed the plugin into the Effects folder - it is definitely there but

 when I click on the Effects button it doesn't show.   What am I missing?

Any help or suggestion greatly appreciated

Hey Art! Welcome to the forum.

That plugin is located under Effects > Text Formations. Do you have that sub menu under Effects?

It's created automatically when the circle-text plugin is loaded. That the sub-menu isn't there tells us that the plugin is not loaded.


Please verify you have unzipped the *.dll file(s) and placed them in your paint.net/Effects/ folder and restarted paint.net?

Neat that you've sorted it Art. Now got forth and create circular text :D
