In the recently updated version of RAW (12.3), attempting to move the photo (left, right, up, down) after using the Heal brush selects the Size feature of the heal brush. So if I zoom in, select a spot to heal, and then gesture right on my trackpad (on a MacBook Pro) to move the visible area of the photograph, it decreases the size of the healing tool, rather than moving the photograph.

Shouldn't you hold down the space bar while you do this?

Johan, thank you for your suggestion. All previous versions of RAW allowed moving the image with gestures, not requiring those additional steps. So, you are right that I could hold down the spacebar, click on the image, and drag the image it that way. It's slower and requires more steps, but I'll have to do that until the issue is addressed.

Update: I've done a little more looking around in the interface, and it appears that gestures are mistakingly defaulting to size adjustments rather than moving the image in some (but not all) RAW tools. Most of the RAW panels do not exhibit this behavior, but the heal and brush controls do. I'll make another post so that it's clear that the issue is bigger than this specific behavior.
