Paths experiment

I'm trying to track down a Photoshop anomaly.

1. Open Photoshop, make a new document

2. Draw a path with the pen tool (any old path, just make sure "paths" are selected in the option bar, not shape layer or fill pixels)

3. Now click on the Path Selection tool (the black arrow) and click once on your path to select it

4. Now go to Edit>Transform Path>Flip horizontal

Can you do it? Is it grayed out?

What OS are you using?

If you right click on the path, select "Free Transform", then you can go to the edit menu and select "flip...."

Yes, but that's outside the experiment. What happens if you do it as listed? And what's your OS?

Thanks for participating.

Thanks!

Anyone else? I'd especially like to get some Mac user input.

Cool, thanks.

Still hoping for some Mac users to try.

In case anyone is wondering, this has been inconsistent (some people don't have it grayed out) and I'm trying to find out if it's an OS thing or some other variable.

Thanks, Jeanie.

I wonder why we don't have many Mac users?

Mac user here!

It works fine for me. Nothing is greyed out. I'm using OS X Jaguar.
