How to stroke an open path (vector)


Question

I'm on photoshop cs6

I am doing a vectorial drawing, i wanted to draw a path without closing it but that was impossible. If i don't close my path, it stays invisible

I tried to create a line then add an anchor point to it and move but for some reason it doesen't work like I wish : enter image description here

thanks for the help

Accepted Answer

Draw your path and merely set the stroke options in the Control Bar across the top of the screen. This is possible in CS6 or newer with vector layers.

For versions prior to Photoshop CS6 you'll need to check here: Do paths in Adobe Photoshop have to be closed?

Another way to do this, and my personal preference, is to design your vector assets in Illustrator, and then paste/place them in your PSD as SmartObjects. Double click them in the layers panel to edit.
