Fill Tool allows you to change the color of some of the geometry
type layers very quickly. It uses the default
foreground color to be
applied to the color of the layer you click on.
To use this tool simply click on the
Fill Tool button and after that
click onto a non transparent part of a visible layer.
Fill Tool acts the same that if you right click the color
parameter of any of the Layers that have it and select
Apply Default Color from the context menu.
If the layer accepts the
Fill Tool message it would change its color
to the current
foreground color. If the layer doesn’t accept the
message from the
Fill Tool it complains and shows a message error.
Those are the layers that currently are affected by the Fill Tool:
The rest of visual layers doesn’t accept the
Fill Tool usage over
them because they use a gradient to fill the visual area (like the
Gradient Layers, the Plant Layer and others) or simply
it is not possible determine if you’re clicking over the layer or over a
transparent area although it has a single color definition for the
visual area (Text Layer for example).
