On macOS Catalina the clone tool brush disappears in full screen mode when placing te brush on the image. In all other screen modes it is visible.

The clone tool in LrClassic? Do you mean the healing brush?

I don't believe that this is a bug - editing is not available in Full Screen mode (shortcut F). (I have checked in Lightroom 6 and it wasn't available there.)

I'm pretty sure Laura is correct. The Spot Removal (that is the correct name, eartho) brush also disappears when you switch to Full Screen mode in Lightroom Classic 9 on MacOS Mojave, so this has nothing to do with Catalina. And when you drop out of Full Screen mode again, you will notice that the brush does not return either. The tool was deactivated when you went full screen.

Ah right, forgot they had both a clone and heal in there.
I think it's really strange that the tool is called "Spot Removal" when it's so much more than that.

I couldn't agree more, @eartho!

It is called spot removal because initially that was all it could do. You could only click to remove a spot. The brush option was introduced much later. They could have renamed it then, but I guess nobody bothered to do that.

To get as close to full screen as possible while using the spot removal tool, use Shift-Tab to hide your panels.

Yes I mean the spot removal tool. But with full screen mode I mean the application full screen mode ... shift +f not the image full screen mode. I hope that make sense! I’m sure that this is actually a bugg.

After analysis, this problem is only on macOS and owed to the management of the billing of the screen by macOS.
Look at video, grieved on a French version, but there importance is not, and you will understand our explanation better.
It is definitely about a bug, because other functions such as circular gradation or the brush work.

That is exactly what it is! I hope there will be a fix soon. It seems to me this was very poorly tested.

It is bug and it happened when updated to Catalina, before that it was working normally. This is really frustrating, since I use the spot clone/heel tool a lot. Would be nice if Adobe would fix it.

Thank you for the clarification! I can't replicate it - but I'm still on Mojave, so that's to be expected.

I followed the steps listed here and tried duplicating the video as well. I have, thus far, been unable to duplicate this on Mac 10.15.1 with Lightroom Classic 9.0.  In all application full screen toggles [Shift]+[F] Spot Removal tool marquee remains intact and active.  In OS Full screen [F] it becomes an hour-glass and deactivates the tool.

There must be more to the story than is presented here. Any more steps you can offer to help me replicate?

Çà n'a rien à voir avec [Shift]+[F] mais avec
- Menu Fenêtre / Activer le mode plein écran, le réticule disparait.
- Menu Fenêtre / Quiter le mode plein écran, le réticule réaparait
Version de LR Classic en français

Nothing to do with [Shift] [fr] but with
- Windows on the menu / Enter full screen, the reticle disparait.
- Fenêtre menu / Exit full screen, the reticle réaparait
Version of LR Classic in French

If english language is selected in pref, it's ok, but if french language selected it's was not ok directly after the installation of LR!!!

I changed the language in the priorities of the French towards English, can rebooted LR Classic and then from English towards French and now the reticle works correctly???

I am unable to replicate with the language set to French. Testing [Shift]+[F] and via the Green Button and both behave correctly. The Spot Healing Circle remain in all modes except Mac OS [ F ]

C'est bien ce que je viens de dire, il doit y avoir eu un soucis lors de l'installation, le fait de passer en anglais puis de revenir en français a résolut le problème !
