I'm slowly understanding how to edit paths, objects and nodes of SVG files in Inkscape. Right now, I'm almost done with an arrow loop I'm trying to create. It looks like this:
This is now a path. The only thing I'd like to adjust, is to remove the black stroke between the nodes at the start of the loop (on the right). So it would only have an orange color at the top of the horizontal segment. In other words, I would like it to look like this:
I've tried learning from this question, because I suspected it would be useful. However, I'm not sure how to view and select the arcs between nodes. When I click on the “edit paths by nodes” option, I can only see the nodes -- not the arcs. I've also tried to apply the ideas from this video, but when I delete a part of the path, I get a new boundary with the same stroke width as before.
Question(s): how to adjust the width of the boundary between two specific nodes on a path in such a way that it becomes invisible? Or: how to delete the path between two nodes and make the stroke disappear?
