Affinity Photo - Clone Brush: adjust clone source using arrow keys

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

When using the clone brush tool, I notice that I have options to set the rotation, scale, and opacity of the cloned area, but I can't find any way to adjust the location of the clone source once it's been set.  I find it much more useful to adjust this location using the keyboard shortcuts, rather than the rotation and zoom. 

 

For reference, the way to do this in PS, is holding Option + Shift + arrow keys.  It's extremely useful when the source of your clone has a repeating pattern.

 

Is there a way to do this in Photo?

 

Thanks

To set the clone source, option click on the area of the layer you want to use for that.

I understand how to set the original clone source, but once it's set, it would be nice to make 1px adjustments to the source location using keyboard shortcuts.
