The thin gray line and control points with direction handle is Photoshop displaying the selected path. The shape path stroke was set to inner and a dashed line style. The closed as displayed in the Paths palette is stroked even though the actual path is not closed, Shapes are closed, I keep writing shape for I think onlt shapes can be stroked with styled lines. Path can be stroked with tools like pencil, brushes etc not dashed lines.
you give me a rather complex example for begin to understand the basic !
I wasn't aware of path tab so i ll take care when use vector tool in photoshop CS6 .
i begin to practise a lot vector tool in PS 6 in the aim of understand pen tool to create delete close the shape using line ( straight line and curve line ( convex convcav ) )
what is strange is that sometime i can change the stroke and fill of the shape that i create with pen tool but sometime no ( disable ) .
Any clue ?
thank's a lot for your help
i understand that from the palette path i have acces to the windows that let me choose stroke path tool .
Does it mean i can change the path style using on eof the item m find in this selection tool ?
If i set brush how can i apply a specific brush along the path ? instead the default stroke i have with the pen tool ?
