Bug Description

I'm using Pinta 1.6 latest Lubuntu 14.04 w/ updates inside VirtualBox (installed from PPA as instructed at HowTo section in the website).

I can't use the "Adjust" -> "Levels" like I wish, because when I click to uncheck any of the "Red', "Green" or "Blue" checkboxes in the bottom, the dialog immediately closes.

Nothing else happens - no "crash", no error message. The dialog simply disappears and, of course, I can't edit and apply the change I want.

*Note: I've reproduced it in a Pinta 1.6 at Windows 7 installation (not virtual). It behaves exactly the same way.

I can confim the problem in Pinta 1.6 on Ubuntu 14.04 and also Pinta development from also on Ubuntu 14.04.

1. Adjustments | Levels.
2. Click on Red or Green or Blue checkbox and whole Levels dialog is hidden. Expected is dialog should not close down.

J Bruni, I have checked Cameron's fix and it looks like problem is fixed now.

Can you please do the following:
1. Download version or newer from - click on "Zip" link.
2. From file editor right click on zip file and select "Extract Here".
3. New folder is created and click on that folder starting with name "pinta-dev-<some_version>".
4. Double click on Pinta.exe and Pinta is going to be started in Mono environment.
5. Check Help | About if you really have a new version.
6. Test the problem.
7. After testing you can delete with unzip created folder to delete this Pinta development from your system.

Above steps will NOT have effect on your system, your current Pinta official program will still be at 1.6 stable, so above steps will have harm to your system.

It would be nice if you could test and confirm that fix is really working as you think it should. I have never used this Levels effect, so I don't know how it should really work.

Officiall fix will be released in Pinta 1.7 stable, probably it is not going to be released in couple of months.
