I am learning how to draw with the pen tool. However, whenever I try to add stroke to the path I made with the pen tool (by right clicking the path and clicking "stroke path.."), nothing happens! I am watching many video tutorials on how to add stroke to a path, and I keep doing exactly what they do. In the tutorials, a panel called "Stroke path" pops up after you click the said option, but that panel doesnt pop up with me. somebody please help. I use photoshop cs6
