Take a look at the following example picture

enter image description here

The letter A is a set of paths (after converting to paths from object). It's two paths really, the outline of the A and then the interior triangle is another path. But when you select it, they act like one combined path, even though they are not connected to eachother.

How would I extract the path from the triangle by itself as it's own independent path that I can fill and stroke?


You can use Path > Break Apart to split that letter A into two unique objects.

  • Ah I was messing with that but didn't know I needed to select ALL the points of the object. Thanks! – Jake Wilson Jul 11 '12 at 5:40
