The Convert to Curves operation is not limited to geometric shapes. You can convert almost any object to curves, including text.
To convert a shape to curves:
- Select the shape with either the Move or the Node Tool.
- Do one of the following:
- Click Convert to Curves on the context toolbar.
- From the Layer menu, select Convert to Curves.
The shape is now made from curves and the Node Tool is automatically selected. Segments and nodes can be modified with the Node Tool.
