  • This is fantastic, I was worried you'd drifted away from pyxeledit, glad to see you're continually making it better!

    I'm not sure if it's this version in particular or the new Creators Update for Win10, but whenever I save a PyxelEdit file now, the OneDrive sign-in prompt appears and launches the OneDrive app in the background (I don't use OneDrive to sync).

    PyxelEdit appears to be trying to scan the OneDrive location, prompting this behaviour? Seems trivial, but it's a super annoying problem when you don't want a bar of OneDrive!

    hAsKi, sounds like an issue with windows 10. PyxelEdit doesn't connect, nor does it use OneDrive in any way.
