To select a path:

1 Do one of the following:

• To select a path component (including a shape in a shape layer), select the path selection tool f, and click anywhere inside the path component. If a path consists of several path components, only the path component under the pointer is selected.

To display the bounding box along with the selected path, select Show Bounding Box in the options bar.

• To select a path segment, select the direct selection tool >, and click one of the segment's anchor points or drag a marquee over part of the segment.

Drag a marquee to select segments.

2 To select additional path components or segments, select the path selection tool or the direct selection tool, then hold down Shift while selecting additional paths or segments.

9 When the direct selection tool is selected, you can select the entire path or path component by Alt-clicking (Windows) or Option-clicking (Mac OS) inside the path. To activate the direct selection tool when any other tool is selected, position the pointer over an anchor point, and press Ctrl (Windows) or Command (Mac OS).
