I am trying to use the clone stamp (Clone Tool) maybe its because I am too used to using Photoshop but I used the command key and the C key then used the command key and the V key and nothing happens. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong and why Affinity Photo decided to make it so hard to use the clone tool?

Thank you.

For the Clone Brush tool to do anything, you must have a pixel layer selected & first "load" the brush with a sample source by option (alt) clicking somewhere in the image.


Command + C & command + V are the standard OS X copy & paste keyboard shortcuts respectively, & have nothing to do with this.


There are many options possible for the Clone Brush tool. The Affinity Photo - Cloning video tutorial demonstrates how they work.
