I'm running Photoshop Elements 12 on a Mac OS X 10.9.4 , and every time I use the clone stamp tool, when I option+click I get the following message:

"Could not use the clone stamp tool because the area to clone has not been defined (option-click to define a source point)."

I have verified that I am selecting all the tool options correctly, and I am working with a single layer photo.

Things I have tried:
1. at least 4 different forum solutions
2. Uninstalling/reinstalling the app
3. Resetting the tool
4.Resetting preferences
5.Alternate key combinations
6. Turning off bluetooth mouse and using touchpad.

Am I missing something here? Please help
