I drew paths thinking i was drawing a shape but later realized it is only a path. Now i could create a temporary shape like a box and paste this in and delete the box path. But just as there is a option to convert path to selection, is there an option to convert the selected path into shape?

Not sure how it is in CS6, but try this:

  1. Go to Window > Paths
  2. Select the path you created
  3. Go to Edit > Define Custom Shape...
  4. Name it if you like
  5. Now go to your Custom Shapes tool (cycle through pressing U)
  6. With the Custom Shapes tool selected, you will see a the Custom Shapes Picker icon
  7. Click the arrow to open the Custom Shapes Picker.

enter image description here

Your new custom shape will be at the bottom.

look at the top answer there is a better way to convert path into shape than saving it permanently into symbol than dragging it to stage and deleting the path already there. –  Muhammad Umer Nov 1 '13 at 17:24
