Is it possible to create a shape path line with the path tool in Photoshop CC? When I create a path and convert it to a shape, it looks something like this.


It would be great if I could convert the current path to a line shape path with a specified width, the same result as the line tool.

It's not exactly the same as the line tool, but if you switch from using a Fill to using a Stroke on your shape, you'll get a stroke at whatever width you specify.
