3.15.  Fill with BG Color

The Fill with BG Color command fills the active layer selection with the solid color shown in the Background part of the Color Area of the Toolbox. (The color 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.

[Note] Note

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

3.15.1.  Activate the Command

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

  • or by using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+..

[Note] Note

You can also fill a selection by click-and-dragging from the Toolbox background color.
