Can't manipulate paths
Okay, I've got a weird problem involving paths. Sometimes, I'll be unable to edit or select the lines of a path. I can work with the nodes and handles just fine, but it's like the lines don't even exist. This usually seems to happen when I save a file, close it out, and then open it again, or when I use the clipboard to copy and paste a path.

RE: Can't manipulate paths
Never had such problems. What version of Gimp? and did you try to zoom in to get a more accurate click on the lines?

I'm using 2.6.11, and yeah I've tried zooming in and making sure I'm clicking in the right place.

Windows.

I suspect it might be because I'm using multiple complex paths with lots of nodes on a large canvas; maybe there's some memory issues?

I doubt so... I have path-related scripts(*) that generate very complex paths (long lines made of sub-pixel segments) and I never had a problem with that. Can you attach here an XCF with one of your problem paths?

(*) if you work with paths, you may be interested by some of my scripts: http://gimp-path-tools.sourceforge.net/
