you can choose the tool you wish to stroke a path with in the dialog (at
the bottom of the dialog).  if you are trying to make a change from
another graphic art application, it might be a good idea to spend
sometime with the dialogs and check out the different options on them.

the thing is, if your experience had been with the gimp first,
everything would seem more natural for you.  and in some respects, it is
wrong to blame gimp for this feeling.

many of the things that gimp does, it does in more steps than some of
the other apps.  each step has different options.  for instance, it
seems that photoshop has these new layer effects.  for gimp users, this
has always been available in a two step process in which you add a new
layer and then change its mode.  in someways, it should be more natural
as you have all the options available to you at each step of the way.

good luck making the transition, btw.  gimp is worth it.
