Hi, I admit that if Erase were a paint mode, I would use it much more. The eraser tool, I generally find does not happen to have brush settings convenient to my current task, and so i find it cumbersome. So, I think that erase as a paint mode is a good idea. I do not understand this 'Negative' paint mode, Radoslav, and I think you need to explain it.
Now that we are speaking of paint modes, I know that I would personally find very useful one that recolors FG colored pixels to BG color.
