A collection of basic path commands. These include the following operations for selected paths:

Each are accessible from the Commands > Paths menu

- Open: Opens all selected paths
- Invert: Inverts selected paths. Inverting a path is similar to inverting a marquee selection. In a path's case, a new path contour is created around the current path that's the size of the document effectively inverting the path
- Close: Closes all selected paths
- Round Points Positions: Rounds all the positions of the points on the path to the nearest whole number
- Round Points to Half: Rounds all the positions of the points on the path to the nearest .5 value
- Toggle Open or Closed: Opens all selected closed paths and closes all selected open paths
- Shift Points: Changes the location of the first point to be the next point in the path (used with open paths)
- Straighten: Removes any curves from selected paths
- Smooth: Smooths selected paths to not have any straight corners

Each are accessible from the Commands > Paths menu
