The Photoshop pen tool is drawing points but not paths. PS V22.3.0. If I add a new path and then use the pen tool to try and create the path, the tool creates the points but not the paths between the points. My workaround is to convert the pen tool from path to shape and use the shape to make my selection but this is not ideal. A quit restart did not help.
I've exactly the same problem, too. My workaround: don't click anything in the path panel, instead start with an working path, naming it after you are ready with it. So, you don't have to work with the shape tool. BTW Illustrator doesn't work anymore with my windows systeme, but this another problem.
