Clone tool not working for me on the iPad version

Recommended Posts

i'm on a new 12.9 ipad in the Photo Persona working a drawing from another program.

When I select the clone tool, and press my apple pencil on the screen, I always get this popup message:


Clone Brush Tool

You must press and hold to set a source before trying to clone.


I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I can't set a source by pressing and holding.

Ok, I see now:

"You must press and hold" 

I would change this to:

"You must press and hold your damn finger you idiot, not the apple pencil"

Note to self, reread picardmyhero at all times. "hold your damn finger you idiot, not the apple pencil".  I thought I was losing my mind!  Also very interesting that the iPad "listens" differently to the pencil than the finger.
