3.15. Fill with FG Colour

The Fill with FG Colour command fills the image's selection with the solid colour shown in the foreground part of the Colour Area of the Toolbox. (The colour 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.
