        A fill tool that DOESN'T leave white lines beneath the perimeter of your drawing, please and thanks ^^

        And maybe even line smoothing and auto correctional lines- By changing the software a bit; it would totally make me buy more super years of doodle or die.

        I think it's a great idea! A fill tool would help improve those who find it tedious to color in, such as myself. I like to spend my time drawing, not scribbling in little areas to try to fill them in.
        As for those who don't want it, I can tell you a simple way to fix your problem: Don't use it.

        I think the fill tool is a perfect idea! Usually when I try to color something I have a hard time trying not to ruin my drawing with it. And it saves some time as well! I would love to have a fill tool especially in a creative site like this! :)

        *cough* There is an userscript that allows fill tool.

        this. this is exactly what I came to ask for.

        I really like this idea. Even Ms paint has a fill tool! It'd save time and make some works look a lot cleaner (specifically mine haha)

        I love how about half of the people here think this is a terrible idea because CHANGE IZ BAD!!!!!!
        I think that a fill tool is the only new tool they should add because creating areas of solid color inside lines of a different color without one isn't hard, it's just annoying.

        I think it would destroy the fun of it. it's supposed to be a super simple doodle program.

        how is it cheating? a fill tool doesn't inherently improve drawings, you still need skill to use it effectively. as far as i can see, it would just be a great time saver and allow some more techniques to be used.

        "if everyone could have this tool, it wouldnt be cheating"
        i'm not talking about cheating the other players, i'm talking about cheating the concept of the game itself

        To be honest I don't mind this idea, it would just be a time saver really since i can see it not filling in flush to the edges so you would still have to clean the edges yourself.

        Part of the fun of Doodle or Die is working within the limitations of the medium (otherwise, just go and play on an Oekaki board). I have developed so much as an artist since playing Doodle or Die because I've been forced to improvise techniques to create the effect of layers and fills. While there have been many times I wished for a fill tool, I worry that it will detract somewhat from the charm of DoD.

        I don’t like it. When you are doodeling on Paper one doesn‘t have a fill-tool either. I think it might destroy the general look of the doodles.

        please for the love of god add a fill tool. why should be be forced to use such crude sloppy painting measures just to get some color on there. :(((

        if everyone could have this tool, it wouldnt be cheating. although it would also make a great incentive to donate, if it was a donator only tool.

        actually i dont like this idea. having to color the way we have it is part of the challenge and using a fill tool would feel like cheating to me

        We'd love to, but it's a bit hard given the current state of HTML and Canvas tech. I know, it sounds like it should be simple, right?

        We're still investigating, though, so know that we're not writing it off completely!
