Clone Brush Tool restricted to a weird box shape

Recommended Posts

When I clone directly on the imported photo there is no problem, but when I try to clone on an empty pixel layer the cloning stops in a kind of random box shape.  

It's probably something I have done, but I can't figure out what. I've attached the afphoto file and a screenshoot of my affinity photo window. 

Thanks for any help,

Gard

Check which brush you have selected, it looks like you have a square brush set, so go to the brushes panel and pick a different brush.

Hi Gard,

If it isn't the brush as suggested by @firstdefence  then i'm sure i've seen this before and it's an issue with Metal Compute, disabling this in Preferences>Performance would resolve the issue BUT it's already been fix in the latest beta which we are advising users to run instead of the release build :)

Very annoying problem with clone tool forcing me to switch to criminal Adobe. Every now and then the clone tool, when adjusting the size, changes to an egg shaped shape instead of a round one. WHY WHY WHY??????

You might be inadvertently holding down the control key at the same time as the alt key and then clicking. This is the shortcut for switching between sizing, brush shape and rotation.

Betas as they happen...
