It should be possible to use the eyedrop tool (right click) while the fill tool is selected. Right now the eyedrop tool only appears to be available when using the Stamp Brush.

Also in earlier versions of Tiled it was possible to eyedrop a null tile and then use the fill tool to fill an area with null tiles. It is already still possible to eyedrop a null tile and brush null tiles. I would like to request this feature be re-integrated.

Hmm, which earlier version of Tiled behaved like that? As far as I know, it was never possible to eye-drop a null tile. Removing tiles can only be done with the Eraser and the Rectangular Select tools. The reason for this is because it can be annoying if null tiles in the stamp would cause tiles to get erased.

Instead of allowing filling with null tiles, I think we need a magic wand tool for selecting regions, which can then be easily cut or deleted. Also, the eraser could be improved for example by allowing to quickly erase rectangular areas on right-click.

I agree eye-dropping should also be possible when the fill tool is selected.

This was years and years ago, like version 5 or 6. It's possible I'm remembering wrong, or that it was actually just a bug.

I agree that wand selection and deleting would follow the graphics editor paradigm better that null filling. That would be completely acceptable as far as I'm concerned.

You may be talking about the old Java version of Tiled then. It seems to allow you to do this for single tiles, after popping up the message "The selection is empty!" on trying to grab. :-)

Alright. That's actually covered by issue #128.
