Oh ok, so maybe what would suit your need would be a network button that shows the computers on the network?

Hi Circular,

Since the archive section involves other systems beyond Windows, perhaps this particular feature complicates development more than it might initially appear, and I know your time is valuable. I wouldn't want to bother you with non-essential issues.

I think, that we can also create links to network folders in other places, and solve this feature from the user side, without further changes. Regarding the link to the desktop, as lazpaint allows us to save frequently used folders, we can also solve it easily.

Oh ok, so maybe what would suit your need would be a network button that shows the computers on the network?

I don't know how complicated it is to add the shortcuts defined in the explorer. I cannot investigate easily because I don't have a local network ready.

Regardless your suggestion is interesting. I will add it. Maybe someone that works on Windows and has a network can help me examine it.

I think the lazpaint image browser should be redesigned a little better

Lazpaint image browser
https://i.ibb.co/j8LJJw8/lazpaint-filebrowser.png

Windows file browser (with lazpaint)
https://i.ibb.co/vJ2G4ZP/lazpaint-openwindow.png

RealWorld Paint file browser
https://i.ibb.co/6D3XVPF/rwpaint-openwindow.png

the "path" box, in windows displays a directory tree (where says "equipo")

The RealWorld Paint file browser although is a customized one, is very similar with the Windows File Browser, by example this have quick access icons to "My documents", "Desktop" and "Computer".
I guess can be good if some common directories are added in the Lazpaint image browser in a lateral panel as in the others, with "My Documents", "Desktop", "Drives", "Network Drives" etc

Something wich I found cool in RWPaint is that your file explorer is integrated in the main window, it does not open a new window as such.

The "save" dialog wastes unnecessary space

Another mouckup idea :)

I get the idea, though I am not motivated to do such change because it is already nice. I don't mind my software being a bit different.

Well that works in this case, but save a JPEG and more space is used on the left side.

That said, I agree it would be nice to have network access.

About having Desktop, the thing is I did not find a consistent way of getting the Pictures directory on Linux, so I have put by default the user directory. So it is kind of a generic default directory. From there you can go to Desktop or Pictures.

On Windows, I there is a consistent way of getting the Pictures directory so I have put that by default, and from there you can go one directory up and then choose any user directory. As path are easily accessible on the right part of the screen, I guess it is ok.

I did not want to make the interface too different depending on the system by adding special buttons.

Though if we start adding Network shortcuts, then why not try at that point to make a kind of dynamic list of shortcuts that could include any OS specific ones.

I included the "Lossless" option from webp save

even if the format have many options, this can be made better :P

Ummm this last lazpaint version is a bit unstable?
At least in my case it has closed completely several times while using it, Windows 7 x86.
Some program to make a crash log?
I looked in windows event viewer but can't find anything from Lazpaint, well, just some old logs from 7.0.7, but nothing about 7.1.1

Oh? What happens exactly? Does it show a message?

With a debug version in principle you will get some extra information.

Let's make some.

You have Win32 then?

It doesn't show any message, it just closes completely.
If it is useful here I leave the log in CSV and PML (to see in ProcessMonitor)

Yes, I have Win32, I can try with a debug version if you want :)

Hmm that log is interesting though I don't really understand it.

Yes, please try the debug version, it is less likely to crash instantly.

If you get an error message, please take a screenshot.  :)

I have made debug binaries for you. Lainz helped be as well.

Hehe yeah, that debug version was less likely to crash instantly, I was starting to think I wouldn't have any crashes and end up not finding the problem heh, but yes, in the end after using for a few minutes there was an error.
This gives me many error windows, every time you press Ok comes back with another error window, I guess I normal with this debug version.
So I taked 41 screenshots and then I closed lazpaint with the task manager.
I hope with this we can found the problem, in any case let me know if I can do anything else :)

Wow thanks I would have been happy with just a few screenshots. :)

Are there particular actions that you think triggered this?

Well I'm using the Opened Curved tool much. I have a whole drawing made with opened curves hehe
I guess is something related to the amount of points and curves in a project :P
Look the drawing, since everything is a opened curve maybe you find it interesting :)

Is not complete, but I think almost, I like how it looks, although it was difficult to do the hair hehe.
