Converting a path to a shape layer .. and retaining the brush stroke.
on Mar 27, 2020 at 8:37:17 am

Hello,

Hope someone can help.

I have been trying to convert a path to a shape layer but every time I do it, I loose the brush stroke I applied on the path.

I am using the pen tool on a new layer. (on the pen menu, i choose path)
I draw out the path that I want and close it
I then activate the brush tool and set the brush stroke that I want.
I choose the pen tool again, right click on the path and choose stroke path, brush.
My brush stroke appears.
From the pen menu, I then choose shape - to turn the path into a shape layer.
The shape layer appears but I have lost the brush stroke that was applied to the path. I just have a regular solid black stroke..

Thanks
