Is it possible to convert a shape into separate paths? For example, I've created a rounded rectangle shape, and I want to convert it to its separate paths (being the 4 sides, and the 4 rounded sections). Is there a way to do this? I want to be able to delete two of the sides, and three of the corners. I can accomplish this via converting to pixels, and then trimming off what I don't want, but I would love to be able to do it faster via converting the shape to its individual paths. Thanks in advance!

Not using the latest but context-click->Divide will make the corners separate from the straight lines - but there´s no way I know to "break apart" into 8 solo parts/layers. Selecting nodes and associated ones from a segment is not possible either here with PM3.4.3 - can´t tell if there are any changes in this regard in recent versions.
