    Argh! Alt-click selects BACKGROUND color

    Okay, I guess I clicked something I shouldn't'a, but I can't work out what. Beginning a couple of days ago, when I'm in Brush mode and I ALT-click on the image, it changes the *background* color, not the foreground color. Before my brain gels around the awkward ALT-click-X workaround, does anybody know what I did wrong?

    My searches, they are useless!

    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).

    In the colours palette (hit F6 to show it if it's hidden) you've highlighted the background swatch. Just click on the foreground swatch to switch back - you'll see a highlight appear around the swatch when you do this.

    I've just realized my question is so common, it's answered on a sticky thread at the top of the page. That's exactly the sort of humiliation I'd hoped to avoid by trying every search string I could think.
