Hi. Question about the CS5 clone tool. It was working fine and dandy up until 30 minutes ago. Around that time, I must have accidentally pressed some arcane key sequence that changed the tool's behavior.

Now, when I try to draw on a photo with the clone tool, nothing happens until I release the mouse button -- then, all the areas I covered with the cursor fill in with the appropriate cloned material. I still get the clone preview, and the cloning function still works as intended. But now I no longer get the real-time feedback as I draw.

Any suggestions on how to get the thing back to normal? Restarting PS didn't seem to help.

Thanks much.

I don't think it had to do with the key strokes you pressed. I think you may have just been out of memory. Photoshop does that with a lot of tools (brush tool, clone tool, etc) when it is out of memory. ;)
