Why is the "Fill to" Layer option deprecated?

Dep Snapshot

Not to mention the “Reference Layer” option is gone completely.

I’m just wondering- That feature was nice, but it’s unavailable now? I’m sure there’s a good reason of course.

Hi Joey

We’ve made a few changes regarding the bucket fill to logic, which is what you’re seeing. The logic has been made more tight, which in turn means that in order to enable the ‘fill to’ combo box, you have to set reference mode to all layers.

Incidentally there’s apparently a bug right now, which is why you can’t see the ‘reference’ option at all. It looks like it’s only shown upon tool load and not re-enabled again when you select a bitmap layer.


The new order of logic makes sense. Thanks for telling me.

So it’s not really disabled? It’s just invisible?

Correct, having reference being invisible is a bug I will fix. By default it is set to current layer for both :slight_smile:


Thank you. I look forward to using it again. No pressure, of course.

Should be fixed now in the latest nightly build :slight_smile:
