paint.net 4.2.11 beta build 7441

NOTE: This was originally posted as build 7440, but has since been updated to build 7441.

This new beta build just fixes a few small things since the previous one (build 7433). We’re almost ready for the final release!

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 4.2.11 beta build 7433:

  • Fixed: "Open Containing Folder" now selects the item in the Explorer window
  • Fixed: Saving with the HEIC file type is no longer limited to a max Quality value of 90. This limitation was in place because of a crash due to heap corruption, which no longer happens.
  • Fixed a bug where the selection would disappear forever if the canvas was scrolled away from it
  • Fixed errors when trying to save into certain cloud-sync’d folders, e.g. OneDrive for Business. This was done by disabling the use of NTFS Transactions.

Enjoy!

      I’m not really sure. There must be something weird that OneDrive does but I don’t have anything beyond nebulous conjecture.

      However, since Microsoft has deprecated NTFS Transactions anyway, I just didn’t think it was worth the compatibility cost. A fallback code path exists anyway for non-NTFS locations, and it hasn’t shown any problems over the years, so it seemed reasonable to go 100% with it.

        Thanks. I did a bunch of extra reading on them after this post (was aware of them previously, but hadn’t had to ever use them in anger). I saw the deprecation info in the documentation so felt happy to not have learned more about them previously – missed the train that derailed 🙂
