Hello, I am looking for a way to get the clone brush angular - so that a square pattern can be added to a corner. Cloning and erasing is too complicated.
Does anyone have an idea.
If not, please include this in requirements.

The Clone Tool uses the selected brush as its outline, you can try adjusting the brushes shape by clicking More on the Context Toolbar. You could also create a new brush based on a square from the Brushes panel dropdown menu.

Hello Lee D, thanks for the hint. I had thought that such a brush is available by default
I downloaded square brushes from free brushes .abr.

Not by default—although you would assume there would be one in the Basic brushes panel due to the Pixel tool using a square brush by default.  However, as Lee mentioned you can create a square brush pretty easily directly from within Affinity Photo (see below screenshot) and can then select that as the brush to use for the Clone Stamp tool.  The Rectangular Marquee tool can be useful for restricting areas that you're cloning to as well.

Hi -S-, yes you are right. I did not realize that.
Thanks and such important hints, should also be in the help or maybe in a video to use the different brush shapes and adjustments (meaningful workflow for which application).
But now at least I know it.
