Thanks for the suggestion. I did this (below) but all that does is create a duplicate of the path. Sometimes it is right on top of the first one (congruent), sometimes it's above it a bit. At any rate, it's a duplicate.

I did discover that to see a path in path tab line-up, one has to click on the "eye" to make it visible. The operative path is always red, the others are blue. When the path is operative bringing the bezier tool near it turns the cursor into a finger and then the path can be selected and stroked.


However, it seems that once a path has been stroked it gets rendered into pixels and no longer exists as a vector path. Therefore, it cannot be altered by the bezier tool. Save the stroking until last and do them on separate layers, I would say.

There is the "Paths" tab (by default close to the "Layers" tab). Bring
it to the front and doubleclick the path in question. This makes it the
active path and activates the paths tool.

I hope this helps,
