Merging vector layers in Photoshop

There is actually a way to merge vector layers in photoshop. If you have one vector layer (a solid layer with a vector clipping mask, that is) and want to combine it with another, to create one layer with one clipping mask consisting of the two shapes, you can't (for some reason) use the "merge layers" functionallity.

Merging layers, step 1

Instead, you use the "select path" tool (or just click the layer mask of one of the layers), press ctrl+c, select the other layer's mask, and press ctrl+v.

Merging layers, step 2

Merging layers, step 3

Merging layers, step 4

This functionallity is somewhat hidden, and not very well known. But this is how you can do it.

To actually combine the two shapes (that now are in the same layer) into one, you selct them both using the path selecting tool and holding shift while clicking them. Then you can use the path combination tools on the top of the screen to specify how they should be combined, and then click the combine button.
