Hi moustache689,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

The Tool you were trying to use is the Undo Brush Tool. The message on the top right is telling you that you need to have s snapshot or an History state selected to be able to undo (use the brush on) that part of the image you were trying to edit, but during this process the program crashed (thus the message you are seeing on the centre). I will try to reproduce and log this issue.

 

I believe what you were trying to do however is removing the object marked on your screenshot (with the Inpainting Brush Tool). You can access this tool clicking on the small triangle in the Healing Brush Tool to open a popup menu with additional tools. The Inpainting Brush Tool is the second counting from bottom (see screenshot). Select it and paint over the object you are trying to remove. You should see a red overlay over the painted area. The program will then process it and remove the object for you.

Windows 10. When I pick the Inpainting brush I do NOT see a red overlay. The left-mouse (drag) just moves the 'circle' pointer around. I see how great it works (watching a youtube tutorial), but that does not match my experience. Suggestions?

Do you have a pixel layer selected (e.g. Background)? I believe the inpainting Brush only works on pixel layers (as you're painting pixels).
