Convert a shape to a path

To convert a shape to a path

    You cannot convert a Callout shape to a path.


    You will not be able to modify properties that are specific to a shape (such as the corner radius of a rectangle) after converting the shape to a path. Also, if a style was applied to the shape before conversion, the properties of the converted path will be reset to the defaults for a path (no fill brush, and a black stroke).
