paint.net 4.2.6 alpha build 7254

This build is just fixing a few small things. Hopefully I’ll have a beta by next week, and the final by Thanksgiving!

To get this update, make sure you have “Also check for pre-release (beta) versions” enabled in Settings, and then click on the Check Now button. (Unfortunately alpha/beta releases are not currently available for the Microsoft Store version of the app.

Changes since 4.2.6 alpha build 7250:

  • Fixed a crash in the Layer Properties dialog when using the keyboard to change the layer’s Opacity
  • New: Added “Native pointer input” setting if a “pointer” device is available (pen, tablet, touch screen). Disabling this will cause any pointer device to be emulated as a mouse, and may be more compatible.

I’m still waiting on some hardware to arrive before I’m able to properly fix the other crash I’ve been getting reports of (example: https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/115459-paintnet-426-alpha-build-7250/?do=findComment&comment=564745). Until then I’ve added some extra information to the crash message which should help me get to the root of the issue.
