When I have a vertex on a path selected, is there a shortcut to extend the selection to all the vertexes of the path ?

Thanks !

When you select a vertex on a path with the Direct Selection Tool, hold Alt and click again on the same point to select the path.

  • It's worth noting this can also be done while using the Pen Tool if you hold Opt+Cmd (Mac) or Alt+Ctrl (Windows). Add Shift to those if trying to select multiple paths.

There is a ‘group selection tool’ under direct selection tool. Use it to select your path. All vertices will be selected.
