When I use spot healing and I drag to select an area to heal, I don't get a smooth selection, but a series of dots. More so,  only the areas which are'dotted' are healed, then I have to go back and heal the gaps.  it's taking me so much time when I have a big job on - which I have at the moment. Help!

Try ctrl-clicking with the heal tool on your canvas and make sure the spacing is set to less than 10.
