Option for the selection tools to paint the selected area after moving it


#1

I think that would be a nice option for all selection tools. When we move a selected area with any selection tool, it makes a transparent “hole” where the moved object previously was. My purpose is to paint the area that was left behind(with any color we want) after moving the selected area so that it will be easier to deal with silhouetes and anything that uses only 1 layer. Also a hotkey to activate or deactivate that option quickly would be welcome.

You are right. When you move a selection this “hole” is filled with:

  • Background color in Background layer.
  • Transparent color in Transparent layers.

But there is no way to select a use the Background color in Transparent layers. We could add a new option for that. Also another option for this other behavior: Smart Fill For Moved Selected Pixels #1416
