Lightroom: Spot Removal Tool (square tip function or stencil overlay)

I'm a hobbyist Lightroom user, so I have minimal experience with the program.

I was wondering if there is an option to change the spot removal 'spot' into a square, to clean blemishes on the edge of hard lines? Is there another way to do this? At the moment it seems quite tedious to clean the edge of straight lines.

If there is no technique to do this, my suggestion would be to create a 'square' spot removal alternative; or the ability to overlay a rotatable stencil on the straight line edge in order to protect it from the spot removal tool when brushing against it.

I would like to see a square tool too. Meanwhile, you can click on the edge of the straight line & then go to the other end of the line, hold down the shift key & click again & it will clean in a straight line from your first click to the 2nd "shift click". I believe the "shift click will work with any of the tools.
