Could you please post a screenshot with the pertinent Panels visible?
Check out the »Path operation« set in the Options Bar before blaming people.
thank you for your reply. perhaps i was not clear enough first time, when i draw a path in photoshop the canvas rectangle is automatically added and when you look at the thumbnail for the path it looks like this
now the problem is that it does not matter what option i choose on path operations, i get the same selection (part in yellow) whereas the path i drew (part in white) is all i need to select.
Please provide a screenshot with the Paths Panel visible.
SubPathItems retain their Path Operation individually, so changing the current setting without any of them selected will not change their behaviour.
that's exactly what i did - to select the sub path (alt click). please note that i olny made one path (the white part of the diagram)
i still get the same result
thank you for the sub path advice. my comment still stands - more complexity has arisen from the new way of doing things
