For example i want to convert the following shape :

enter image description here

to a group of paths so i get path points in all edges.


Extensions → modify path → convert to dashes does exactly what you want.


You could always use Path -> Stroke to Path and although that would convert the shape into a single path it does give you nodes on all edges like you asked for.


Finally i got the answer it was very simple, sitting there in front of me, but for some reason i didn't catch it!, anyway here is the solution :

1) draw a circle for example.

2) Remove fill color.

3) Set stroke color.

4) Choose dashes type from stroke style with the appropriate width

5) From the main menu click on Path > Stroke to Path

6) That's it.
