Did the suggested fix work for you at all?

If not, please let us know what version of MyPaint you're running. We can't begin to investigate this problem unless we know that.

Hi Rachel. Looks like you're using an older version - could you have a look under Help > About MyPaint please, and tell us what version you're running?

Not a Windows expert, but it's possible that MyPaint has got its settings confused. Have a look in %LocalAppData% (just type that thing with the "%"s into the Start menus search box) for a folder named "mypaint", and try renaming or deleting the file named "settings.json" to see if that fixes it.

You'll also find a folder named "scratchpads" in there, in case this is being caused by a brokenly-saved scratchpad file.

version: Windows ( 32bit )

I have tried uninstalling it and re installing it a couple of times and the scratch pad will not open when i either click on the shortcut on the tool bar or even try to access it through the file menu,
and when i try to open a previously saved scratchpad/image to the scratch pad, a 'Bug Detected' window pops up revealing these details:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\Program Files\MyPaint\library.zip\gui\drawwindow.py", line 843, load_scratchpad_cb(no details)
