Clone stamp Healing brush misbehaving

I use the latest version of Photoshop 2020 on a Windows 7 PC.  Since the most recent update the clone stamp and healing brush are misbehaving. As I click the spot at which I wish to clone, the computer clones a diagonal line at 45 degrees starting at the point clicked.  Almost as if it was stroking an invisible path.  I have read other posts and remedies from users reporting similar problems and tried all the remedies, reset tool, reset preferences, turn off ruler view.  I have checked all tool options and other settings but can see no problem. One observation is that the length of the cloned stripe is fixed and independent of the degree of magnification being used when cloning.  EG If I clone at 12.5% magnification I get a 6 inch stripe.  If I clone at 100% magnification the stripe as seen on the monitor is still 6 inches long but of course as a proportion of the total image size it is much shorter.  I hope this description is clear enough.  Any ideas on how to resolve this?  Many thanks in anticipation.

You'd be best updating your OS to Windows 10.

Sadly I have not solved the problem.  I simply stopped using Photoshop 2020. I plan to get a new computer soon and expected that using W10 would overcome the problem.  Now you have me worried.  Mike

Mike, 

I wouldn't be concerned.  Lots of people use the feature and it works just fine.

For me, I ended just bouncing photoshop and now it doesn't happen.  It was the first time I had used the tool, so I was a little concerned myself.

I don't know if I somehow set an anchor point.   I know what was happening is a feature, I just don't know how to turn it on/off.
