Stroke path doesn't work. It won't let me click on it. I don't understand.

I have read a good many tutorials on the pen tool and you make it make sense in literally .02 seconds. Kudos to you. I own a tablet, but I still can't quite get those pesky lines right. I did all of my lineart in GIMP for a long time because I have thought very poorly of the pen tool... This totally works! Thank you! :hug: :highfive: :handshake:

Everytime I use the pen tool, it adds a vector mask :o I don't know why it started this or what I pressed to get this to start happening, but I need to know how to stop it :(
