First time poster here.
Just to give some context, I have to reduce the size, thickness, and change the color of 100+ different weather icons for a project. Batch resize and change color works fine, but I'm having trouble making these icons thinner.
Top screenshot: how the original, unedited SVGs look in Illustrator. Bottom screenshot is how it looks when I apply the offset path of -3px. No difference, right? (I selected all the objects within the layer so you can see their strokes)
I searched online and only found one solution so far, which is to use "offset path" and enter a negative value, in this case, I entered -3px. I did this, but as you can see, a compound path (the thinner icon) would instantly be created, while the original icon is left untouched.
Now, here's how it looks it when I hide the original icon layer (sun):
The problem I'm facing is that I tried recording all of these steps and Illustrator can't record the action of hiding the icon with regular thickness.
That being said, how can I reduce the thickness of 100+ of these icons? Is there a way to record the action of hiding/deleting the original image after applying -3px offset path? Is there a way to make these icons thinner without creating an additional compound path?
