Convert selections into shapes

You can convert selections into shapes and continue working on them as you would with regular shapes — edit vector paths, combine them with other shapes, or save them to the Shapes palette.

Convert a selection into shape

  1. Make a selection using any of the selection tools.
  2. Do one of the following:

    • Choose Format > Convert into Shape (from the Format menu at the top of your screen).
    • Control ⌃ – click inside the selection and choose Convert into Shape.

Note: When converting selections into shapes, Pixelmator Pro will apply your last-used styles to them. If you'd like to change how the shape looks after you add it, you can do so using the Style tool.
