Inadvertently double-clicking while holding the option key(on a mac) switches the clone tool to sampling from an aligned source.  This is problematic when retouching and sampling from a limited area. When retouching all day it is not unusual to be clicking rapidly hundreds or thousands of times a day.  It's frustrating to be cruising along and suddenly things aren't coming out right and you have to go back in history. By the way, it only goes one way.  Option-double-clicking does not uncheck the aligned box.

Please set up a way to disable this or configure it with an additional key command (shift-option-doubleclick) so that an action that is normally performed hundreds of times does not reset the tool.  We all like to sleep from time to time, but falling asleep every time we blinked twice in succession would be a problem. Double-tapping the brakes and shifting your car into hyper-drive could be problematic.  Better user interface please.

I first requested this from an Adobe rep at a Seybold show in 1995. Sorry to bug you again.

Thanks
