What's new? We have released an updated 2.8.14 installer (http) for Microsoft Windows. This one fixes the crash on window resize and the missing icons bugs - all by updating the included GTK+ library to 2.24.24.

Still unsolved are the missing spacing character in the zoom drop down and the disappearing background on high zooms (updating the Pango and Cairo libraries that are didn't change anything there), investigations continue.

Please continue to report bugs, we can't fix what we don't know about.

Checker: a portable version of Paint.net is available, but untested and not something I would use: http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=61988#p61988

Webfork is correct, there is a portable version. Worked fine for me on XP. I also like the knockoff of it called Pinta available for Linux. It's not full-featured yet, but it certainly works.
Off-topicP If you really want portable, put your favorite version of Linux including whatever programs you want on a USB stick and you've got an entire portable OS!

Download link still pointing to Pixia 6.00G rather than to 6.00H and gets a "not found" error.

it creates a folder empty c:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming\picpick\
under windows 7 64bit

@giulia
Confirmed and updated the entry. Thanks. I no longer use this application... not sure when this was introduced. Best is to email the developer to fix that.

@giulia - if you are referring to the "creates an empty folder under C:\users\...etc," this began following V3.2.6. I have written to the author and asked that he allow the executable to search the main program folder for the app's INI file instead of insisting it be created under the User folder, but so far my request has fallen of deaf ears. I stick with V3.2.6 because I work on client PC's and they are not fond of my creating either registry entries or files and folders on their machines. If more people requested this slight change, I'm sure the author would listen.

Dynamic Draw is a vector graphics editor useful for making flowcharts, line drawings, org charts, buttons, etc. It is an object-oriented drawing and design program with an intelligent linking system. It can export to other vector graphics formats such as SVG as well as non-vector graphics formats like JPG, TIFF, PNG, EMF, WMF, PSD, BMP, and PSD.

The program supports OLE allowing one to copy objects and paste to other OLE applications and vice versa, but the portable mode may experience issues with this.

Optionally, the program comes with video help files that take up 25 megs of space in the LangId\1033 folder. These files can be removed to save space without impacting the program, but deleting the entire folder will cause the program to crash on launch.

  • Sometimes the text is not displayed which anchors bottom.
  • Some other bugs.

seems like this program deals with the registry, it comes with some registry files and their contents hint that the registry gets modified a lot by this program...
