Delete Selection Point When Using Healing Tool

For the life of me, I cannot delete an edit when working on healing layer. I can move the point, but is there no way to delete one of the points of healing? You'd think you could select the point and just hit delete, but nope.

Not quite clear what you are wanting to do. You can only have one source point per healing layer, so you cannot delete it, or there would be no healing. (Where would it take the data from.) You can use that one source point to heal more than one part of the image and you can use the eraser tool to erase the mask (press M to see the mask) where you don't want it after all.

Do a Clear Mask from the Layers action menu (3 dots). This will remove the selection point and the mask (they are linked).

Ian and Paul, thank you for your responses. They were both helpful.

Ian, I do understand what you are saying. Essentially I guess it is when I am wanting to start over on either the mask or the source. Instead of just being able to delete and start over, you essentially have to delete the layer and create a new one. Even if I use Paul's method of clearing the mask, the origin point and the source point stay there. That seems so strange to me. Why keep that when no mask exists anymore? There just seems to always be some anchor left behind and deleting the layer and creating a new one is the only way around. Not a huge deal, just seems clunky.

Thanks!

In that situation, I would just drag the selection point to a new part of the image. If the part I am trying to heal (the target) is unchanged, there is no need to delete the mask. Or you could then delete/draw to get the mask as you want it.

Ian

Edited to add: sometimes I put the selection point where I think it might be best, then draw the mask, then fine-tune the position of the selection point to get the result looking right.

That is correct in CO Pro 11. In CO Pro 12 this is fixed. Clearing the mask clears the selection point.

Good points guys. I appreciate the input. I'm having a hard time upgrading to 12, since I bought into 11 right before it came out. A bit upsetting, but nothing I can do. I've run into some stability issues with C1 in general that make me hesitate to go all in for 12, but if I do, I'm glad to know that selection point will delete if the mask is cleared :lol:

Thanks again!
