Toggle Sampling Method - Image vs Layer


Go to solution Solved by Rick Brewster,

Recommended Posts

Seems like a simple question, but I searched the forum and did not find the answer.

 

Is there a simple way (key macro type thing) to toggle between sampling in the whole Image versus within the active Layer?

 

Thx

 

ps. While I am asking "toggle" questions, is there a quick way to toggle between the B/W Primary/Secondary colors and custom colors that you have selected?  It would be handy to have PDN store the most-recent set ofcustom colors and to toggle quickly between them and the B/W.

Searching the Documentation (https://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/ or click the :Help: icon top right in paint.net) is the best thing to do when looking for an answer.

See the Tip under Sampling Modes here https://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/ColorPicker.html

You can hold Ctrl to force sampling the whole layer. Says so right in the status bar:

Thanks!

 

That works great for the color picker tool, but "sampling" is used with other tools as well.  The "Fill Bucket" for example.  The Control option does nothing there.
