select to path

Hi
I am new to gimp and and have started doing the tutorials.
Am trying to follow the 'Drawing Shapes with the Path Tool' tutorial.
When it gets to the 'select to path' part nothing happens when I click the icon and the 'select to path' command in the menus is greyed out.
Anyone have any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks

Try opening the Path Dialog and using the Path to Selection icon. See below:

Thanks for your reply but the icon you have highlighted is for 'path to selection'.
The one I am trying to use is 'select to path' which is the next one along.
The alternative from the menu bar - Select - To Path is greyed out.
I am using ver 2.6.11. on windows vista.

Sorry. The only way selection to path will work is if you have a selection on the image. So, for example, if you're creating a selection with the rectangle, ellipse, or freehand selection tool, when you go to the Paths dialog, the selection to path option will be available, in the menu Select - To Path, as well.
