Over and over and over when I look through the tool section I can't find away to lets say : Make a circle (marching ants) then press command-shift-o, like in the original Pixelmator I can't get the stroke effect of making the (marching ants) turn to the stroke-color I want. This really bugs me big-time So I find my self going back to the original pixelmator

I love learning about Pixelmator Pro 2, but it's things like this that get me gun-shy of PP 2.
I've looked all over PP 2 and can't find the key to accomplishing this daunting task
Why in the world would they leave this out? Or am I not seeing the obvious right before my face?


Any help would greatly be appreciated !

Do you mean you want to stroke a selection - if so, I cannot work out how to do it either.

The following may not be the most obvious method, but it's really quick and I usually go for it if need to achieve something like this. If you Control-click a selection, you should see Convert into Shape option in the contextual menu. Once your selection is converted into a shape, you can then add a stroke or fill it with any color you want in the Style (S) or the Shape (U) settings.

Not directly, but you could try adding a Row Selection above the guide and convert it into a shape.
