Photoshop: Complex Paths grey out when I "make selection"

I have complex paths drawn to remove the background from a product image. In the Path panel everything is hi lighted until I "make selection" - then only the outer edge is selected and all the inner selections disappear. Please help! I have done several complex paths just like this and this is the first time this has happened.

Is it possible to post a file (CC Files or Dropbox) with one of these paths that's not having the selection created correctly?

you probably have the feather selection turned way up by accident.

i don't have the sections anymore. one of the trouble shooting ideas for paths that stop working was to save to a different file name and restart, so i lost the history. i ended up making a new layer and re-doing the paths that kept de-selecting. One guy said there was a limit to how many paths you could create in one layer - and the additional layers worked with a little bit of a work around. the feather selection wasn't changed.
