I have perhaps a silly question. If I have a line, very thick, say 70 pt, and I wanted to use the outline of this line rather than its actual path for vinyl cutting, what can I do to change this? I must add the line has be distorted and I don't want to lose the distortion. It's a horseshoe. Thank you

Since your path is using a distortion, first go to Object > Expand Appearance:Expand Appearance

This will give your path the distorted shape. Then you outine the path using Object > Path > Outline Path

Outline Stroke
