So this next shortcut isn't really a shortcut, it's more of just a reminder of functionality of an existing tool. That is you can sample with the Clone tool from another document. So in this particular example I have got kind of a blank background here, it's just all overcast. Then this other source document here, I have got a tree that I might want to paint in. So to get this set up, I'll use my Arrange Documents widget up here in the App bar and we'll tile these side by side, and I'll press the S key for my Stamp tool and you simply click in the document that you want to sample from, hold down the Option key or Alt key on Windows and click where you want to sample, and then just switch back to the document by clicking in it to start painting from that other document into this new target document.
You can see I get a little Brush preview there and I'm just going to start painting by clicking and dragging, and I'm stealing content from one document and painting it in to another. So the trick there is just Option or Alt click in a separate document, and that will become your clone source.
