Can't select shape layer to set first vortex
on Sep 28, 2017 at 11:52:32 pm

Performing my first shape morph to a shape layer. Can't seem to select a point to set first vortex. Have attempted this 1. by selecting the shape layer itself,
2. by selecting the group and
3. by selecting the keyframe of the path and right clicking.

Any help appreciated.

You need to select an individual point on a path in order to be able to set the first vertex.

To do this choose the selection tool and then click on the point on the path that you wish to be the first vertex. Now the menu option should be available for you to set the first vertex.

cheers,

Angie

Angie, thank you for your answer. The problem is that I can't seem to select a point. I've been using Adobe products for over 15 years so I definitely know how to select or direct select a point. Once I can select a point, I definitely see the other steps. It's not a hard process, just stumped on selecting a path point.
