Painter 2021 AI and embedded images

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.
