Very new to this program with elementary uses for Gimp.  Main task is
extraneous graphics from pdf. maps and drawings.  Currently, the
setting for the
eraser tool is not removing graphics, but painting on the checkerboard

have you tried, in the layers pane, to select the layer, click right,
and remove the alpha channel ?


the default setting for the Eraser Tool is to not erase from the
background layer. As the example above shows this is not what
users expect and therefore (new) users have problems with it.
Is there a reason to have chosen this default?

Kind regards,
