3.16.  Fill with Pattern

The Fill with Pattern command fills the image's selection with the pattern shown in the Brush/Pattern/Gradient area of the Toolbox. (The pattern is also shown to the left of the menu entry.) If some areas of the image are only partially selected (for example, as a result of feathering the selection), they are filled in proportion to how much they are selected.

You can select another pattern by using the Pattern Dialog.

[Note] Note

Please note that if the image has no selection, the whole active layer is filled.

3.16.1.  Activate the Command

  • You can access this command from the image menubar through EditFill with Pattern,

  • or by using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+;.
