Add "Bitmap" as a Fill option

Recommended Posts

The Fill Tool with the Bitmap option is in Affinity Designer

Affinity Photo does not have a Fill Tool, it has a Flood Fill Tool


It gets even more confusing...

If correct they were probably mine. I apologise for any mistakes made by my AI - I'm sure it will improve with time.

What I'm looking for is a consistent means of selecting "Bitmap" as a Fill option. I'd like to see "Bitmap" as another tab, after Gradient, or as a selection on the Gradient tab itself. 


I'm not seeing a Bitmap option at all in Photo, at least not as a contextual option when "Fill" is chosen.

Your screenshot has marked the Floodfill tool. The tool I mean is the one below it, that looks like a CD. It's called Gradient in Photo, but it does do bitmaps.


Why isn't it called the same thing in both apps, and why isn't the word 'Tool' included in the tooltip in Affinity Photo? ears.gif
