Affinity Photo path to selection

Recommended Posts

Can't make a selection for a mask from a pen path tool. Somethings if I click Command on the pen path I get a selection, marching ants, but most of the time it doesn't happen. Why not?.

I am no expert. So forgive me if I misrepresent the solution. If you want to make a selection and or mask from a selection using the pen tool. When you select the pen tool, the area just above the work area has context related options. You will see pen at the left, for the tool you selected. Next you have option buttons to press, if you want your pen selection to be a mask and or selection. So if you make an area covered by your pen tool, you can push the mask button to create a mask, the selection button, or both. There are also the dedicated selection tools on the left side too, to make selections. The selection brush tool, the flood select tool, and a group that includes the freehand selection, and various shapes for selection. Hope that didn't confuse you, rather than help.
