Clone tool hiding the clone area

1. LR Classic Ver.12.0.1
2. iMac Monterey 12.6.1
3. Whenever cloning something in the new LR Classic there is a black symbol hiding the actual clone area. All the other types of repair tools have the same bug.
4. I expect to see what I´m doing. It´s hard enough in LR since you can only zoom 100%.

Idea

1. It would be a good idea to not have that covering the area that you want to clone.
2. It would make my work faster, make me feel more sure of what I´m doing if I could see.

Set the Tool Overlay in the lower left corner to 'Never'.

"It´s hard enough in LR since you can only zoom 100%."

 

You can use the Healing and Masking tools at higher magnifications, e.g.

Yep. Lightroom Classic has had a new zoom method for a while now that few people seem to know. If you hold down the Cmd-key on a Mac (that would be the Ctrl-key on Windows), then your zoom cursor changes from a simply loupe to a loupe with a dotted rectangle. That means you can now draw a rectangle in the image and then Lightroom will zoom into that rectangle. That means you have a stepless zoom option up to 1600%.

Thank you!
Then it seems I have another bug. 🙂
That doesn´t work for me. I still only have fixed steps of zoom levels.

No, you don't have your own personal bugs. Make sure you do not have a tool selected. So without any tool selected, zoom in first using this method. Then select the clone tool.
