Converting an Outline to a Path
To convert the outline of a path to a path, first select the path and select the menu item Transform->Convert Outline To Path. For example, consider the path in Figure 8.50(a). This has a line width of 10bp, a circle start marker, a triangle end arrow, a gradient line colour and a yellow fill colour. Figure 8.50(b) shows this path in edit mode to show the path's defining control points. In Figure 8.50(c), the path's outline has been converted to a path. This new path now has a gradient fill colour with a line width of 1bp and no start or end arrows. The new path's defining control points are shown in Figure 8.50(d).
