Convert fill to stroke

Post by MartinN » Tue Mar 30, 2021 9:50 am

Hi community :)

I have a pdf with a Cut Path "stroke" that is made as a fill element.
Because of that our Zund cutter cuts the element twice, both the inner and outer path.

Is it possible to convert this "stroke" to a real stroke or remove either the inner or the outer path with an action?
I run theese pdf through out Pitstop Server, so an action is need.

There isn't a fill to stroke option as such, although it's something we are looking at for the future.

I have had some success using the 'trace' option to recreate the shape and tracing the cutter, and then deleting the original filled one.
You can use the offset path to pull the new one under the original to check the accuracy.

Could you send me the one with the cutter as a fill please. I would like to add it to my collection for development?

I found a solution to it. Select the color and then combine turns it into a vector with true fill, the Zund now detects only one path.

The file is sendt to your mail :)
