I can make a path that is open, and then close it. 

but there is no way, to go the other way. 

 

the menu item "Mask and Shape Path : Closed" is always grayed out.

 

splines, rotosplines, masks generated from pimitives (circles, squares, etc...,) masks generated from the menu, masks that are drawn open, and then closed. all types of paths... not going to bother testing shape paths, somene else can do that. 

 

Mac

Mac os 13.0 (22A380)

After effects 23.1.0

 

steps to reproduce:

make a cicle mask, right click on that mask, try to select "Mask and Shape Path : Closed"

What you need to do is to select not one but two vertices along the path to be able to unclose it. It took a while for me to figure it out as well, not super intuitive.
