LIGHTROOM 6 - Spot removal in a panorama

Using Lightroom 6, I stitched together a panorama and manually cropped most of the white space out. There's still a little white space in 2 corners, which I've been trying to remove with the spot removal tool to replace the white with a little bit more sky.

The spot removal tool refuses to work on most of the white space -- it's like it can't be edited. I'd love to know how to fix this!

Thanks

The white-space around the panorama is an area where there are no pixels, so they cannot be replaced by other pixels.

To be able to change these pixels, you would need to export a TIF (or JPG) of the image which will put white pixels in those areas, then reimport that TIF (or JPG) and use the adjustment brush, again.

Thanks, that's what I was afraid of. This seems like it's a really common task for panoramas... Lightroom should add support for this without an export/import workaround.
