Help much appreciated

Dom said he did that, Dave.

And Dom, I can't seem to do anything to get the commands to gray out like yours. Unless Dave sees something we don't, the next steps I would take would be:

a.) reset preferences
PS delete prefs.png

b.) uninstall/reinstall

It's hard to tell what you have going on with the closely-cropped screen shot, but I think you have the Pen tool selected, and the mode is set to Path or Shape? How about resetting that tool (or all tools) by right clicking the tool icon at the far left of the Options bar?

My mistake Barb - hadn't spotted that he had reset the tool.

No I don't know of a setting that would grey out the path options. So if the tool reset didn't work - I would indeed go for a preference reset

Thank you to all of you!  This was driving me nuts- worked on my computer but not the work computer.  Appreciate the help!

Hello Barb,

I have tried both the options --- reset tool and reset preferences, I am still unable to fix this issue. Is there any other way this can be solved? Many Thanks

Hello,

Have tried all of the options above and still have grayed out path options for color.

Rubber band option works though. MacOS10.13.6, Photoshop 2020. (It works fine on Photoshop 2019!)

Help would be appreciated.
