fill selection with color
I am trying to make circular list style bullet in Gimp.

I have created new image 10x10px with transparent background, I drawn a circle using eclipse selection tool. Problem appears in my next step, that is how to fill this selection with color I choose?

Upon clicking on bucket fill tool my circle disappears.

Thank you

RE: fill selection with color
It is turned on, but somehow "marching ants" keep going their way in border of image. Is there some special way to apply selection?

Thank you

RE: fill selection with color
There is an alternative to the bucket fill tool to fill the selection.

In the edit menu - "Fill with FG color" and "Fill with BG color"
the keyboard shortcuts are ctrl-, and ctrl-.

edit: 10 x 10 pix, Use the paintbrush and paint over the selection, always providing you have followed ofnuts advice on selections.

Go to Select in the menu then click To Path. Now the selection is on a path and the marching ant wont disappear.

RE: fill selection with color
It is good know.
I read somewhere that I should hold Ctrl key while using Eclipse selection tool if I am going after circle. It seems that it was misleading information.
Now I don't hold it and while I get same results selection is actually active.

Thank you guys!! Smile))
