Bug Description

Pinta 0.7 on Windows XP sp3. I was looking at how Gimp is using the Clone tool and assuming the same functionality is supported in Pinta (according to hint it should work the same). So I did:
1. New from toolbar - select 1000x1000.
2. Paintbrush from Tools, Brush width to 30 and draw some line.
3. Change color to red in Palette.
4. Draw another line.
5. Now I have two colors. Click on Clone Stamp from Tools.
6. Press <Ctrl>+left mouse click on red line. Release <Ctrl> key and click on black line.
According to Gimp it should clone the background circle to new location. But it looks like Clone Stamp tool is not working in Pinta. Am I missing something or is Pinta not functioning the same way as Gimp?

It works here. Maybe try it on a photo so you can see how it's supposed to work?

I was trying to follow the following Gimp tutorial: http://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/feature/15037.html and it works fine in Gimp, but the same principle does not work in my case in Pinta.

I did:
1. Save the picture from above web address.
2. Open picture with Pinta.
3. Select Clone tool from Tools.
4. Zoom picture to 400%.
5. Moved sliders to see the bottle.
6. Press <Ctrl>+left_click on dark water in the left site of bottle.
7. Release <Ctrl> button and left_click on bottle. Nothing happens.

Now I see #4 really works fine as described. But as I see I forgot to write one step. Before step 4 do the following:
3a. Image | Rotate 90 Counter-Clockwise (it looks this action produced the problem --> this step was obvious to me to have the same picture orientation as original picture on the web site)
Now follow all of the steps from 4 to 7.

Today, beside testing this problem on Pinta 1.1 on Windows XP I have also tested this problem on Pinta 1.1 on Ubuntu 11.10 and Pinta latest development on Ubuntu 11.10 and the same problem appears.

I did additional following two tests.

Test 1:
1. Open file from #4 in Pinta.
2. Image | Rotate 90 Counter-Clockwise
3. File | Save
4. Accept default 85% JPEG Quality.
5. Select Clone tool from Tools.
6. Zoom picture to 400%.
7. Moved sliders to see the bottle.
8. Press <Ctrl>+left_click on dark water in the left site of bottle.
9. Release <Ctrl> button and left_click on bottle. Nothing happens.

Test 2:
1. Close the file and reopen saved file from "Test 1" (so rotation is already saved in file).
2. Do all steps from 2 to 9 from "Test 1" and Clone tool works fine.

OK, the real problem here I think is that the bottle ends up outside what used to be the boundaries of the picture before it was rotated, and so the picking operation (ctrl-click) doesn't work. If you pick the source somewhere else on the picture it will work, but the cloning stops if you try to clone it to somewhere outside the boundaries (like where the bottle is).

Updating title to reflect that.

Hi,
is there something wrong with Pinta's mailing list? I have tried to post new post in mailing and everything looks OK (like it is posted, even get an return message that new post was posted), but just new post is not displayed in mailing list.
Any idea?
Regards

I looked up the membership list for the Google group and for some reason you're not listed as a member anymore. I sent you an invitation, so rejoin the group and it should probably work. Next time anything like this happens, just email one of us directly rather than adding unrelated comments to the bug tracker, please.

I have typed in Robert into "to" list in my e-mail and I was not careful enough and launchpad.net e-mail was listed, so that is why post was added to the bug-tracker.

So anyone reading this bug report please ignore #7, #8 and this #9 thread. Sorry for confusion.
