Clone Brush

The clone brush is a brush engine that allows you to paint with a duplication of a section of a paint-layer. This is useful in manipulation of photos and textures.

Usage and Hotkeys

The clone tool can now clone from the projection and it's possible to change the clone source layer. Press ctrl-alt-click to select a new clone source on the current layer. ctrl-click to select a new clone source point on the layer that was active when you selected the clone op.

Ctrl+alt+click is temporarily disabled on 2.9.7
