After the latest PS CC upgrade, the rubber band disappears for paths within paths, such as a donut hole. Workaround is to start a new path for the inside shape and then paste it into the original path. Can this be fixed or is it a bug in the newest update? Please help. Thanks.
Maintain a Work Path, then working on named Paths should work as expected.
»If I save the donut (path1) and then try to add the inner path, no
rubber band appears.«
Did you not understand what I wrote?
Maintain a Work Path. A Work Path with one Point is enough …
Then working on the named Paths functions as expected.
When one uses the Pen Tool (set to »Path«) without first creating a Path in the Paths Panel a Work Path is created.
In Photoshop there are essentially three kinds of Paths:
• Work Path
• Path (with the additional option of one Clipping Path per image)
• Vector Mask

And did you actually bother to watch the gif in post 1?
Thanks! I just got it. Has adding to a saved path always required making a "one point" working path first? Seems like a workaround to compensate for the fact that a saved path cannot be directly altered otherwise. Has it always been that saved paths cannot be altered without creating a working path first?
»Has it always been that saved paths cannot be altered without creating a working path first?«
No, this bug was introduced in Photoshop 22.3.0 and has gone unfixed in Photoshop 22.3.1.
In my opinion it is not terrible that the bug »happened«* but that the bug has not been fixed at the earliest possibility is disappointing.
*: And as a work-around exists I do not consider it necessary to woll Photoshop back to 22.x.x bevause of this.
Hi @ddarian ,
Thanks for the update.
The rubberband should appear after the first point of the second path has been placed.
Can you confirm if this is the case?
Remember that the rubberband will disappear once a path is closed and reapper when another path is initiated.
Hope this makes sense.
Keep us posted ok?
My pen tool was working OK with 22.3 but was broken with 22.3.1
