3.4.3 The Paths Menu

Like the Layers dialog and the Channels dialog, the Paths dialog also has a menu that can be displayed by right-clicking anywhere in the Paths Palette area. Figure  3.24(a)

Figure 3.24: The Paths Menu
Figure 3.24

shows the Paths dialog and Figure  3.24(b) the Paths menu. As shown in the figure, many of the functions available in the Paths menu can be accessed from the button bar . However, the functions Copy Path , Paste Path,  Import Path, and Export Path are unique to the Paths menu.

The Copy Path function copies the path in the active path strip to a buffer. This path can then be pasted into another path strip, either in the same image or in another, using the Paste Path function. The Export Path  function brings up a dialog allowing the active path to be saved to disk. This saved path can later be recovered using the Import Path function .

Because the remaining functions are available in the button bar, they are described in the next section.
