I just purchased Corel Painter 2021, so this may be a dumb question as I am new to the application.
If I do a quick clone, the image is cleared from the canvas. If I create a layer, or use the canvas, I cannot get AI presets or styles to work on the embedded image. I have to place an image on another layer in order to get AI styles or presets to work. I can only use manual clone painting or auto painting on an embedded image. If I use clone instead, the image is not cleared from the canvas and the AI features work.
If this is by design, I am not sure I understand why, maybe somewhat could explain. If I am doing something wrong, I would appreciate someone letting me know how to do it correctly.
Thanks in advance for your help.
It is by design and you can set prefs for your way of working with cloning. See the User Manual for explanations.
