No. First it's important that it's not an additional mouse-click. 
Not even a click, just where the button/pen-down happens if you 
start to draw.

If you work 10 hours + on an image, every click more or less counts. 
Especialy not having to think about any other operation but drawing 
is a big one.

Then it's not simply inversion, as there could be more than 2 
zones.
