No -- cloning WORKS, just won't clone over the black (empty?) areas left by rotating the rectangle. I can clone over everything AROUND the black areas. > >2. In your procedure, did you consider or try Adaptive >Wide-angle Filter instead? I haven't -- I will -- but I was more interested in the cloning not working as I expected -- and I was wondering if it might be an answer to some of the posts that have appeared here over the last year or so about cloning "not working" sometimes! > >Regards, Antero

I don't think this is a bug or that you did anything wrong. Essentially, when you move the object on the background layer, you are creating a "hole" in your canvas, so there is nothing there upon which to "paint" with the clone brush. You might try using content-aware move instead. This should allow you to reposition the lamp post and then CS6 will fill in the blank spaces.
