Forgive me, I'm rather new to Graphic design. I'm currently making a font (in inkscape), and have been drawing the characters using bezier curves. An example can be seen below. Character plus path

However, when I try to assign a keystroke to the shape using inkscape's built-in svg font editor, the font editor reads the curve as being filled, as can be seen below. Character filled in

How can I make the bezier curve itself, plus it's width, into shape as opposed to just a bezier curve line, such that It gets read properly by the SVG font editor?

Go to the Path menu and choose Stroke to Path:
