I just published a new tutorial about how to erase in Krita.

Here is the tutorial video:

Let me know what you guys think about them.

Hi Widhi,

I see you've really got used to all the ways to erase in krita now :)
That particular tutorial would be very useful for all the people who seem to get confused about erasing.

Your tutorials are very well presented and pleasant to look at and to read/watch. Congratulations on making them to such a high standard.

Hi again Ahab :)

I hope you are doing well and thank you for commenting on my post.
But I think you miss-understand my situation here. My previous stance against fill color commands never changed.
I've been a silence long time users of Krita and already getting used to how erasing works in Krita for years.
If you watch the whole tutorial, I actually skip explaining that shift+backspace and backspace will erase also just like Delete does.
i constrained myself to only explain the "delete" button.
Because if I explain the color fill becomes delete also can make Krita looks bad. I'm hiding an "ugly" truth here :(

If I'm a new user, knowing that if I have an eraser brush active, there is no way I can fill selection with foreground and background color, and that we have 3 shortcuts (Delete, shift+backspace and backspace) doing exactly the same thing, even if we turn off the eraser mode off. It just plain annoying.
I hope the developers consider leaving shift+backspace and backspace to their original functions regardless the state of the eraser brush, because we already have the "Delete" shortcut for that.

Thanks for the tutorial. Regarding the last method you described in the tutorial: At least currently in Krita 4.1.7 for Mac (OS 10.14.2), on a transparent layer, selecting a region of pixels and pressing Delete actually fills with the background color, which is different from normal eraser behavior. I discovered that to clear the pixels, you need to use Cut instead (Cmd-X). I suspect there are Mac vs. Windows differences here... I don't think the Mac even has a Backspace key (mine doesn't anyway).

Delete clears the image in macOS as well, but most mac keyboards do not come with a "delete" button. At least on macbooks you have to press "Fn + Backspace" to turn Backspace into "delete" button and be able to clear as in the tutorial.
