6.15.  Fill with Pattern

Revision History
Revision $Revision: 1917 $ 2006-07-27 sally

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.
