How do I copy selected paths of a shape in Photoshop CS6


I was wondering how I copy selected paths of a shape in PS CS6.

  • I start selecting the paths I want to copy by clicking on them and holding SHIFT.
  • I then press ALT SHIFT which only copies one of the selected paths.

How can I copy all of the selected paths, not just one?

Select the paths as you normally would using Shift and click with the black arrow path tool, then Ctrl C to copy and Ctrl V to paste. There's no need to use any other modifier keys.

If you want to copy multiple paths within the shape layer by Alt-dragging, press Alt, start to drag, then add Shift to constrain the movement.
