Hi MBd

You can only draw paths with the Pen Tool, Pencil or Vector Brush tools. The Node tool is just for editing nodes.

In Affinity Photo yes, you can convert a path to a selection pressing the Selection button on the context toolbar (on the left side) for the Pen tool. In Affinity Designer this command is not available.

But … there is a nifty workaround in Designer (see my video) …  ;)

 

(a.) Draw your path.

(b.) Don’t apply a stroke, but a fill.

(c.) Command + Click on the path thumbnail in the layers list.

(d.) Voilà, you have created a selection from your shape.

 

Cheers, Alex  :)
