    A single path compound path is technically allowed in the relevant vector format standards. Its just slightly useless. Since its technically possible to do you need to be able to read it in. You could convert it offcourse but the programmer might have some rountripping requirements assigned. – joojaa Aug 5 '20 at 15:55
