Believe I have a bug here:
After using Pen tool to make paths on a file, Pen tool will just give-up and ignore requests to 'Make Selection,' 'Stroke' the new path or 'Fill' the path. I've checked the circumstances where this problem goes away and they involve:
- Saving the file as another iteration, Naming_convention_02.psd to Naming_convention_03.psd. Exiting from Photoshop and coming back into working on the project jiggles the right bits loose and it starts working as advertised.
- Saving then exiting Photoshop and resetting the computer.
If I am toggling something in Photoshop, this shouldn't work to fix the tool. Pen tool seems to have an arbitrarily numbered amount of uses before it 'breaks' and I have to jump out and jump back into Photoshop to keep working. If there is a faster work around or something I toggle that 'breaks' the tool, please help me to quit doing that!
