Clone formatting in Draw for images

I can't seem to get clone formatting to work.

I click on the part of the image I want to clone, click the paintbrush icon, brush the brush curser over the area I want to clone and nothing happens.

Most times I don't have an curser option to start - just a move object icon. So I try and click the area from which I want to clone with it - go through the same process as above - and nothing.

I can't find anything about using clone formatting for images online - just text. Is it not supposed to be used for images?

Any insight appreciated, I just spent 2 hours trying to figure it out.

It's unclear what do you mean by "part of image", but I guess you are trying to edit some bitmap. That's something Format Paintbrush isn't intended to.

Draw isn't a bitmap editor (unlike e.g. Gimp). It is vector-oriented, and deals with lines, shapes, texts, and their widths, line endings, etc, not with pixels. So if I'm right with my assumptions, you are trying to do something not possible with Draw, and need a more suitable for your needs editor.

Thanks Mike! I am trying to use it like Photoshop's clone stamp. Am I way off base?

That's work for Gimp.

Just a side note: please don't add an "answer" to your question, that isn't actually an answer, but rather a comment to another answer. "Add a comment" is a tool for such task. Thanks!

That is exactly what I need - thank you so much Mike.

Thanks also for the procedure guidance, this was my first time posting here.
