Yet another one...

Stroking a path with the 'Quick Selection' tool...

To replicate:
1. Open an image...anything will do.
2. Set 'Quick Selection' tool to 'New Selection', 'Sample All Layers' and 'Auto - Enhance'.
3. Add a new blank layer.
4. Create a closed path by whatever means you wish...just as long as it is a 'Path', not a shape.
5. With the 'Path Selection' tool right click inside the path and choose 'Stroke Path...'
6. Choose 'Quick Selection Tool...' near the bottom of the 'Tool:' dropdown.
7. Click 'OK'.

CS6 works OK.
CC 2014 works OK.
CC 2015.5 poos it's pants.
CC 2017.0 poos it's pants 2.

I cannot find any configuration where this works, although it used to in earlier versions.

Error message...

So....is it just me?

I get the same error in 2017.1.0

I tried it in CS6 and it works................however on the image I tested, I'm not sure what the advantage of using the Quick selection Tool to stroke a path would be when you could just use the tool directly. I'm not sure I would miss this feature but I do understand that it's the principle of the matter.

...I get the same error in 2017.1.0..
Thank-you IamSam

It seems they knobbled it in 2015.

Obviously they don't think its worth the effort to fix...some 6 versions later.

Can't say I blame them...I've never used it...:rofl:
