Clone Tool not working

Hello!

I had the 2.10.10 version of Gimp on my computer and was editing many pictures everyday, especially using the clone tool. All of a sudden, out of nowhere, the clone tool stopped working. I set the "source spot" using ctrl+left click and then wanted to start painting my selection from my source but when I clicked and dragged across my selection, nothing happened. It didn't change the image.

I updated to version 2.10.12 (latest version) but i still have the same problem.

Any help is appreciated, thanks!

Guessing a Windows user. Updating Gimp is not a bad idea however please note that re-installing Gimp does not remove/change your Gimp profile where the tool settings are kept.

C:\Users\"yourname"\AppData\Roaming\GIMP\2.10\

First thing to check is the Alignment - right down at the bottom of the menu (1) and often overlooked. If that is in 'Registered' mode then for a single layer you are cloning on top of the source and nothing happens.

While there try a reset to default values (2), might be a fix.

Still not working? Rename that Gimp profile as a backup. Start Gimp up and it makes a new default profile. Check it works ok. Copy any resources brushes/scripts..etc over from the backup.

Resetting the tool worked. Many thanks!!!
