How auto fill selected area with color
In MS Paint when i select part of image with Polygon tool, this part is autofilled with background color. In GIMP i have to use first Selection tool (Free Select) and than swith to Bucket Fill for filling selected area with color. How to make autofilling selected area with color in GIMP as it in MS Paint ?

Isn't there already a button for this? "Ctrl-." fills selection with background color, "Ctrl-," - with foreground

RE: How auto fill selected area with color
If the OP isn't using Windows, Linux OS offers a nifty option in the form of "custom keys". If the user is using Windows I am told there are some 3rd party software that would grant the same options.

Similar issue here --> http://gimpforums.com/thread-can-t-handl...3#pid20353

In this case it would be a matter of making a shortcut that uses "Ctrl+. followed by F" to switch back after the fill function. I know this sounds like overkill, maybe, but these programs are there to make life a bit easier.
