Can you adjust the "fill" tool to non-contiguous?

 It's a real pain to have to go into text or other images and have to click on dozens and dozens of tiny white colour to make transparent.

Use the magic wand.
You may or may not want to use "Global Color Selection" For non-contiguous selections?
It will depend on what yore doing. Select the color, then use the Select Less/More slider to change tolerances.It updates as you slide it, which I find annoying."I use Photoshop, which has a smoother workflow."



Switch to the fill bucket/tool.
Set the buckets Opacity and Tolerance sliders to 100%.
Set the color and fill the selection.
Use Ctrl + D to deselect the area.Done {:>)

If the results are not what you desired.You may find you need to undo the process and start over. Photoshop is much easier, but this can work.{:>(

I got off topic in my response. You mentioned a fill tool. I was thinking you were trying to add color not delete it.Sorry about that.

You can use the same technique to select a color and delete it. Just make your selection with the wand and hit delete.
