I am new user in Pixelmator and I used to use Photoshop. Now, I would like to use Pen Tool in Pixelmator.
In photoshop, we use pen tool to cut things and then Ctrl+Enter to make a selection.
In pixelmator, I cannot make selection and it automatically fills with color. All I want is just selection .
Please help me how to do this.

You can't use Pixelmator's Pen tool to make a selection per se, but you can use it to draw into a layer mask. Does that work well enough for you?

    You can't do this directly in Pixelmator—if you want a selection you'll have to create a new layer, draw with the pen tool into that, then use the brush selection tool to create a selection based on your pen shape. – Bob Nov 7 '16 at 12:08
