Hi dear Community members :)

 

I have a problem with the Pen Tools. The selection Button is missing. I don´t know if it was there before, as I did not use it until now.

But I realized, it is not there ! I did a little research and found out, that the Button should be there where the question mark is on the screenshot ( it is in German, but the UI is the same).

I already closed the path, leave it open, looked in the studio settings. Couldn´t find anything that helps me. It does not work neither in Publisher nor in Designer.

thx in advance.

Thank you for your answer. But that was not the question. h_d already seems to be right, it looks like it is a only Photo tool

What @Pšenda means is in the Settings section in the Designer help topic there is no mention of Mask or Selection but there is in the Photo help topic.

I think you can still get a selection from a (filled) shape in Designer by switching to the Pixel Persona and CTRL+Click on the layer's thumbnail in the Layers panel

Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

Ctrl-click on Windows, Cmd-click on macOS.
