I just downloaded the latest version of Pixelmator and I'm having a problem with the repair tool. Whenever I use it, it repairs the area with a lighter version. For example, if I'm cleaning up a spot on a blue background, the repair tool will remove the spot but place a lighter blue circle. Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug?

Do you have adjustments applied to that layer and are you, by any chance, using the Repair tool with the Sample All Layers option turned on? If you are, the Repair tool is taking the overall resulting image and using that as the source. Then, when the repaired area is painted in, it's already lighter and then the adjustments applied, making it lighter still. Turning off Sample All Layers will fix this, as the Repair tool will then use just the original source image without adjustments.

Thanks! That fixed the problem. I guess I had that turned off before and when I did the update it was turned back on.
