  • Redesigned shape tools (demo video):
    • The Line tool now supports drawing curves and arrows
    • Shapes remain editable after being drawn
    • All shape tools now support drawing dashed lines
  • All selection tools now support the Union, Exclude, Xor, and Intersection modes

  • Redesigned New Image dialog, which includes presets, orientation and background options, and a thumbnail preview of the image.

  • Improved the error message when opening an unsupported file format

Hello! I recently switched from Windows to Mac and have been looking for something to replicate the paint bucket fill feature in Paint. I read some suggestions online and downloaded Pinta as it seemed like the most basic app I could see, which appealed to me as I am specifically looking for just this feature. After installation I tried to open it and it promoted me to download the mono.framwork, which I did following the link and I understand I downloaded the most recent version. After download completed I installed it and tried again to open Pinta but now it just crashes as soon as I try to open it... doesn't actually open at all. Can anyone help me? I'm wondering if I should remove this and the mono framework from my system (if I can even figure out how to do that), but still hopeful there might be a simple way to solve this. Any help would be appreciated!

The required Mono Framework is no longer available, at least from the link in the App.
