Cloning and healing tool using iPad Pro fails

Apr 4, 2019
Lightroom Version
Operating System
  1. iOS
  2. Other (please note in thread)
I’m trying to use the cloning tool on my iPad Pro 12.9” 5th generation ver 15.6.1. I’m successful in creating a cloned section but when I click on Done, the photograph returns to its previous un-cloned state. It does retain the clone marks where I did select an area to be cloned. What am I doing wrong?

I’m also looking for good tutorial on Lr CC on an iPad. Most are focused on iPhones.
I decided that this problem had to be a problem with the app on my iPad. I decide to delete the Lr app and reload it. The Healing Tool now works the way it should.
Thank you to all of you who were scratching their heads over this one. Next time I’ll know to delete the app and reload it.
