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.

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.
