Inkscape: remove stroke preserve size/shape


Question

I've created a path with a stroke and a fill of the same color, and I'd like to remove the stroke while preserving the size/shape of the object. Is there a simple way to do this?

In other words, I'm looking for something like a "Stroke-and-Fill to Path"

The best solution that I have come up with so far is to use "Stroke To Path" and then delete all of the inner nodes.

An alternative to DA01's answer:

  1. Select an object.

  2. Convert selected object's stroke to paths (Ctrl + Alt + C).

  3. Break apart the path (Ctrl + Shift + K).

  4. Delete the inside path by clicking somewhere outside, then clicking in the center and deleting.

Yep. That's how you do it.

If you want to save a bit of time, you could do this:

  • Select object
  • EDIT > DUPLICATE
  • select this duplicate and remove the stroke
  • deselect the duplicate object on top and select the original below
  • PATH > STROKE TO PATH
  • now select both items together and PATH > UNION

That will save you the step of having to delete the inner nodes.
