In Photoshop CS6, it used to be possible to just click on a path while holding command (Mac) and it would make a selection out of the path. In Photoshop CC, this very useful shortcut is gone.

Hmm. This seems to work fine for me. Are you clicking on the thumbnail?

I feel quite silly, to say the least. In Photoshop CS6, you could click on the path name and in Photoshop CC it only works when you click on the actual thumbnail. To my embarrassment, I didn't find that solution on my own. Thanks, Jeffrey.

It's OK. It's a subtle change to allow for multiple path selection.
