Replace colors (beginner question)

I'm trying to replace all of one color with another.

I tried right-click, select-by color, then pick an item with the color I want to replace - it seems to select properly.

THEN I try and use bucket fill to fill that selection and I get nothing.

I would expect that this would replace the entire selection with the current fg color. It isn't - I think it's just replacing it with color of the selected region (i.e. it does nothing).

Replace colors (beginner question)

Are you sure that (a) you are filling with the foreground color and (b) that you have changed the foreground color? I just tried this, and it worked fine for me. But you do need to make sure that the foreground color has been changed. If you've selected a blackish region to start with, and the fg color is still black, nothing will appear to have happened.
