In inkscape I can draw a circle. If I want a bigger circle centred around it like an outline I can just hold down the shift and ctrl keys and I'll get concentric circles. This works because obviously each point on the circumference of a circle is the same distance from the centre point.
Now let's say I have a shape like this :
Is there a way that I can make a copy of the shape and enlarge it such that it appears concentric to the smaller copy of the shape? As if it were an outline?
