Using PE 2.0, Win XP
I already reset prefernces with cntrl alt shift.
I tried cloning with aligned off and on and it doesn't matter. I get
from wherever the + is instead of my mouse cursor.
To sample, I click the clone tool then hold the alt key, then left
mclick my mouse. I release then hold left mouse button down. Then, the
+ symbol shows up and whatever it is on is what clones rather than
where my mouse cursor is.
