Are any of you familiar with (experienced in) using the new "fill by line art detection" option for the bucket fill tool? It's not working the way I expect, and I'm wondering whether I'm not using it correctly, or whether I'm expecting something it's not designed to do. The demos I've seen show the tool filling in a bounded area with color without "coloring outside the lines". (I used to do this all the time years ago with another drawing app that I can't even remember the name of now.) When I try it with GIMP, it will fill some of the bounded area, but not all of it. Is it me or is it the tool? What settings do you recommend?
It is necessary to adjust the tolerance in "Lineart Detection Threshold" and "Maximum Gap Length". Lower values will expand the area to be filled.
Thanks for this! Lowering the "Maximum Gap Length" to 0 did the trick. I can see where a higher value would be useful, though, for filling an area that is almost bounded but the boundary has some small gaps.
