How to convert pen-shape path to a working path?
How do I convert a shape path to a working path in Photoshop CS5?
How I have tried: I have searched through the tools in the program and search through forums and the Adobe help site on the web.
Select the shape path by using the Path Selection tool
Once selected, copy the path with Ctrl/Cmd-C.
You've now copied a path. Pasting this onto a shape layer will turn it back into a "shape", but pasting into a non-shape layer will just leave you with a path.
