When I want to use the healing brush in Elements 9, having alt clicked to take a sample to brush over an object I want to remove, the brush samples continuously as I brush despite the Alligned check box being unticked. How can I get the brush to just use the original sample rather than going on sampling?
On the tool's option bar, top left, click on the little triangle, then reset the tool. Does that fix it?
When you drag it will always switch to aligned mode. You need to do single clicks if you want the sampling point to stay the same.
