Can't Stroke Path

Hi All,

Using CS2.
I'm experimenting with trying to paint a path using the stroke a path. option. But when I create a path to stroke, the Stroke Path option in the drop down menu is light gray (not available) and the little round Stroke Path with Brush button on the bottom of the paths palette is obscured by the little circle with the line through it.

What am I missing?

Thanks, Bob

Stroking Paths

Well you have your picture. Then using the pen tool you make a path.
Open the paths palette to view your path. Click it once to select the path and then click stroke path with brush icon underneath.

My guess is that you didn't have your path selected.

Hi Bob!
Before pressing that stroke a path button you need to set your brush color, size, opacity 100% Hardness. Check also that the style is normal and opasity 100% and flow. You find those brush options up to the options bar. Check also that the layer you are painting is in normal mode and it's opacity and fill are 100%. After that you are ready to press stroke or fill button in paths palette. Hope you get it to work.
