I have a PDF scroll saw pattern that I’m converting for the GF. When I open the pdf in Affinity Design, all but 2 of the objects come in as simple (one stroke) lines. The other two have hundreds of nodes in 2 concentric paths. I’m not patient enough to zoom 500% and select hundreds of individual nodes and delete. Might this be accomplished by Illustrator’s Simplify tool? Unfortunately, Affinity Design doesn’t have an equivalent, and my old CS5 version of Ai will no longer run on my iMac.
This is just one part of an extended project, so I need to figure out a workflow I can apply to dozens of other patterns. Here’s an example SVG illustrating the problem:
The upper right lamb is set to no fill and you can clearly see the double line of nodes…
Suggestions? I could get a 1-month sub to AI and power through the project files, but that’s kind of a last resort solution.
