Rotate spot removal circles! Please (also, maybe do some other shape than circles)

It would be really awesome to be able to rotate spot removal circles for things like copying hair from one part of the head to another. Sometimes you just cannot match the curves right and you'd need to rotate the spot to match the angle. I see someone has asked about this 7 years ago and it was never added in. ALSO, it would be amazing to not have to work with a circle (have an ability to do a free flow of a shape in spot removal --- like you would in patch removal in Photoshop). Sometimes a circle is not the right shape for removing a spot.

Here is an example - his hair is sticking out. I'd love to be able to copy hair from another part of his head, BUT the angle doesn't match. I'd need to be able to copy and rotate the spot to match the angle I need. That would make things so much easier than having to patch-job multiple spots.

This took I think 4 different spots. And it still kinda shows jagged. I know liquidate is not an option in LR, but for something like this it would be nice to just scoot that spot in just a bit.

Close-up - angle doesn't match.

Thanks, Ester

If you hold the mouse button down while using spot removal, you can "draw" any shape you want (LR 5 or later), not quite the same thing you are asking for, but possibly a legitimate substitute

Yep. I know that. It's still a generally round shape, though. I'd like to be able to draw an irregular pattern, outline something, drag onto something else to replace, like you'd do with the patch tool in PS.

Honestly, it's the rotate that I think we need the most. That would be absolutely incredible, save a ton of time.

Thanks,

Ester

Are there any updates on this one???

Still wishing I could rotate the spot removal tool. The answer above is NOT helpful, sorry. I know I can dray any shape I want, but I cannot rotate the selection and often times the curvature doesn't match so I have to resort to using photoshop for stuff like that use case above.

This is 100% NOT the "correct answer.  The correct answer is "no, you can't do that, but SHOULD because it would be awesome!"

Another example to help clarify; I am editing a family shoot now, the baby drooled a bit and got the top of one of her pockets wet.  It's pretty noticable, so I'm using sport removal to fix it.  The problem is, it's at the top of the pocket, right on the lip, creating a boundary in the spot removal area.  In order to look right, I need to duplicate the line boundary at the top of the chest pocket.  There is a dry chest pocket on the other side of her dress, but because of her body angle, the top pocket line is at a slightly different angle than the other, so it looks wrong.

I'm not sure what the proper terminology is for the different areas in the spot removal, I'll call them "correction" and "replacement" zones.  The correction zone is the zone over the area the user would like corrected.  The replacement zone is the zone being used as the sample for the correction zone.

What I'd love to be able to do is "print" the correction zone, once I finde the correct replacement zone, to make the sample stick to it's current position, then rotate the correction zone so that, in this case, the top pocket line is at the correct angle.
