Currently I've got the "Change foreground colour" dialog open and whenever I change the colour I need to click inside the selection to activate the Bucket Fill. Is there a better way? ;)


Ctrl + , is the keyboard shortcut for the 'Fill with foreground color'. Try that instead of the bucket fill.

  • Thanks, that's better, but ideally I'd like to play with the colour picker and have the image updated immediately. – eug Mar 11 '13 at 14:43

    Right, try Colors -> Colorize and play with the sliders. Is that more like it? Choosing a specific hex color will be harder though. – Tom Brossman Mar 11 '13 at 14:49
  • yeah, that's good too but the dialog isn't as nice – eug Mar 11 '13 at 14:51
