stroke path greyed out
on Aug 3, 2006 at 5:12:52 am

Hello

I am trying to stroke a path but the option is always greyed out. I have read every tutorial I can get my hands on and there was a topic about this in the COW in March, however the author of the article solved his problem without explaining how he did it.

Whether I right click on the path palette or in the main image, I am unable to stroke a path! Help me please.

And the envelope please...

This from the photoshop help:

"Important: When you stroke a path... Make sure the layer you want is active before beginning. You cannot stroke a path when a layer clipping mask or text layer is active."

So the answer, at least for me, was to select an open and available layer. If a shape or work path is selected only, stroke function is not available. A layer must be selected in order for stroke to work.

Another issue is that paths should be selected for the pen tool, not "shape layers". These are little visual menu buttons at the left side of the photoshop menu bar.
