Strange here... I ran the installer and it placed the files in

 

"%UserProfile%\Documents\paint.net App Files\Effects" (I have "D:\My Stuff - Docs etc\Documents" as Documents)

 

Not in "%ProgramFiles%\paint.net\effects"

 

Yet they do show up in Plugin Browser   --- ???????

 

PS. Using 4.3.7 NOT store version

The classic version of paint.net will search both %ProgramFiles%\paint.net\Effects and %UserProfile%\Documents\paint.net App Files\Effects, unless an Administrator has disabled the paint.net App Files folder for security reasons.

The small increase in performance you get coding in C++ over C# is hardly enough to offset the headache of coding in the C++ language. ~BoltBait

I sorta figured that, but could not find reference to it. Many thanks for your prompt reply.

 

Best regards

@TheBish Welcome to the forum. 

 

Update your Paint.NET to the latest version. You're on 4.3.10 which is now incompatible with the latest plugin pack. 

 Oh man what a first impression. Thought I was on the latest. Working great! Thank you for the quick support!!

@KrisVDM I tried running the installer and windows 11 won't let me ???

Yep, it's very common for virus software to warn of a problem with some Plugin downloads.  Glad you got it in the end :)

I wrote "Test" and used the drop shadow but nothing happened to the text. 


Did you put your text on a new transparent layer?  It won’t work if you put your text on the default white layer.

If I accidentally closed the drop shadow window to edit the shadow, how do I get back the window?

 

Go back to Object > Drop Shadow.

Read the first post. The version of the program is indicated there.
Install and test. Report the result. It's better than a question.

Reread it, they don't explicitly say whether it does or doesn't. But still, worth a shot.

My guess is it will have a fair bit of issues compared to stable, but don't take that as absolute truth. After all, it's just a hypothesis.

I want to test it in Pinta under Linux to see if it works there.

 

Plugins built Paint.NET for cannot be used in Pinta. The two applications have different plugin systems.
