Foliage fill tool erases foliage

Hi connormurry,

What version of the editor are you currently using?

i am using 4.6.1

Hi connormurry,

The Fill tool is designed to set the density of the paint tool, so that you can fill the brush by the amount designated within the fill tool. It is not intended to fill the entire landscape with foliage. You can find more information on this at this page:
