Fill tool doesn't completely 'fill'

When I use the fill tool to simply 'fill' a selection, it does not completely fill it. There is an ivisible barrier or line that prevents it from filling all the way to the edge. Do you think I have my settings wrong?


See screenshot.


Thank you in advance!bee.png

    A Bucket Fill of a transparent area fills only pixels that are 100% transparent.  Some of those near the lines you've painted are actually partially transparent - hence the fill stops before reaching the completely opaque pixels.


    If you want to do filled drawings, consider drawing paths and using filled shapes as an alternative.  Or you could select the transparent areas with the Magic Wand, expand the selection a bit, then paint in the selected area with a big brush..
