I'm having a really weird problem with my paint bucket. It is pouring out a weird pattern, I have no idea how this has happened or how to undo it. Any advice would be really appreciated, thanks.

Burger with weird pattern fill.

    In the Paint bucket tool options ( Since I can't see it in your screenshot, it can be activated here: Window > options) select Foreground instead of Pattern. It's the second dropdown list in there. It is probably saying Pattern at the moment.

Look in the top left of your screen when you have the paint bucket selected. You should see a dropdown that allows you to switch between Foreground and Pattern.
