I have some shapes that have a white fill with a black 5pt stroke and I need to separate/create a new object that is the same size as the fill. Duplicating the objects and removing the stroke still leaves the objects 2.5pt too big.
A quick solution I have found is to export the objects into photoshop, select the fill by color-range and cutting to new layer, but this isn't really practical as I lose quality and I need to do this potentially hundreds of times.
I was wondering if there was an easier way to do this, preferably in illustrator? Thanks in advance.
