I'm confused about cut path. I am using Designer 1.187 .

If I create a shape with the rectangle tool or circle tool or create a closed shape all at one time with the spine tool, the cut path icon becomes active.

But if I create a closed square with the line tool, making sure that all corners are joined, the cut path tool is not active. Also, if I create a closed shape with the spline tool but make it from several splines joined together, the cut path icon is also not active.

Also, the flip tool does not work.

It seems like after fooling with a lot of things I did manage to activate the cut path icon.

What am I missing? How can I get these shapes to activate the cut path icon?
