I already know it :). Now these sequence is rather long. In order to
edit already existing selection as a path, next actions are required:
1. Selection to path
2. Select last selection from selections tab and make it visible. This
step is not straightforward and quick.
3. Choose path tool and start editing...
I understand there should be the separate selection to path action, and
there should be an ability to edit a path not affecting existing
selection. But could the 1. and 2. actions be merged into one additional
menu item to make the things quicker?
The existing "selection to path" can be renamed into "Copy selection to
path", and "Move selection to path" or "Convert selection to path" can
be added. The last should create a path from the selection, clear the
selection and make the path ready for editing. Optionally it can switch
to the path tool too.

OK, I understood.
