[Segmentation] Provide Close tool (behavior of old Fill tool)
Open, NormalPublic


The name if the fill tool is missleading. To many people (including me and others of the team) thought it is like gimp/photoshop fill. Which is not. It is more a interactive closing operation (with a very large step size).

The proposal is to rename the tool and use another icon to reflect that better. e.g. Closing tool.


  • Clarify if the tool should be renamed
  • Clarify if we want to introduce are real fill tool (would mean a new task)
  • Act accordingly

Remark: The close operation is also possible based on the FillRegionBaseTool. Reimplement tool this way. This also allows to depricate and remove the SetRegionTool class.
