To create snippets for our documentation we generally take small pictures using the Windows snipping tool and then put them into Paint.Net to add some text to the image.
The trouble is, if I paste an image into Paint.NET that now becomes the only area where I can add text/shapes/etc.
For instance, if I create a new image that's size 800x600 I can draw anywhere in the image. I think paste in a screenshot of size 400x200. My original drawings are still visible, but I can no longer add anything outside of the 400x200 area of my pasted screenshot. I've tried pasting normally, and pasting as a new layer, but nothing works. The background layer cannot be edited outside of the 400x200 area after pasting in the image.
