Hello,

I just updated PH to 2020 version. In Shape I can't remove, rename or export shape, they are innactive. How can I make them active? Thank you

Looks like you need to use Shapes panel before the commands are available in the tool options bar.

Hi There,

That shouldn't be happening, could you please let us know the version of Photoshop you're working on?

 

Does it happen with every document or just one specific document?

 

Could you please share a screenshot of the Layers panel?

Make sure the Lock icon on the Layers panel is not selected.

 

Regards,
Sahil

Jeff, this hasn't worked for me with the latest update.   I have a shape on a document and try to remove the ones I will not use and they still will not allow me to.

Go to Window>Shapes and use that panel to delete your shapes.
