In Photoshop CC 2014 rubber stamp tool not working propertly. My configuration; Win7 64bit / NVidia GForce GT360. I updated driver to newest version. No reason. In Internet newsgroups I found out that this problem has many people. Thus, this is definitely a problem with the new Photoshop (in some configurations, of course). Rubber stamp not responding properly. Quick-clicking does not clone the image. There also helps to turn off graphics acceleration.

It is difficult to describe in a few words. I work with Photoshop since 1992 (version 3), so I feel that this tool is not working as it should. Stamp working late, or not adequately replaces the erased. Sometimes I click and nothing happens, the delay is quite significant. You can not work with this tool. It's completely useless in this version of Photoshop.

Are you sure you are using the rubber stamp and not one of the healing tools?
Have you checked all the settings in the clone source palette?

This is definitely a program error. As I mentioned I work in Photoshop for over twenty years, so I have no problem with his tools. Several other people also noticed this problem.

Most of those are about Photoshop CC, never verified as a problem, and solved by resetting preferences (aka removing the settings they forgot changing).
One is a video card driver bug, fixed by updating the driver.
And one is a very old version where the user forgot some settings.

So really, only a few people claim to have problems with the clone stamp tool - and most of those have already been solved (and were not bugs).
