Add "Bitmap" as a Fill option

Recommended Posts

If you switch to the Fill tool and look at the context toolbar, there should be a drop-down for Type. Selecting Bitmap from that will prompt you for the filename of the bitmap to use.

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...


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

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
