3.15. Fill with Pattern

This command can be accessed from an image menubar as Edit->Fill with Pattern, or by using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl-;.

"Fill with Pattern" causes the image's selection to be filled with the pattern shown in the Brush/Pattern/Gradient area of the Toolbox. (The pattern is also shown to the left of the menu entry.) If some areas of the image are only partially selected, they are filled in proportion to their degree of selectedness.
