HELP Inkscape getting rid of double lines LESSON

Here is a quick overview of getting rid of the double lines in inkscape that are not needed (SOME double lines you do need to keep )

here we have a picture .jpg
Put into inkscape and view out line (there will be red cross in a big square this is ok) trace bipmap and you will end up with a picture that looks like this throw away the .jpg
The red arrows i have draw on here is the ones you DON'T need


Highlight picture and go to path and break apart
And it will brake apart
Now click on the out side lines of the double lines that you don't want and click control x on your keyboard and it will take that one away
Keep selecting all other outside lines and control x ing until you get rid of the lines you no longer want and save as .svg

Hi Susan: ljritchie here. Could you suggest how to take double lines out of more complicated graphics? i.e. like one of the vector cartoon files? Then how you would go about cutting it out? Thank you so much for all of your help.

Thank God!!! I was soooo stumped when it came to this. I just wanted to delete this software from my computer and use something else. I must say Inkscape is NOT easy, but with tutorials like this one, it makes it a lot easier!!!!!!

Thank you so much, I can;t wait to try this. I was just like the other woman, I was about to trash this program until the MB told me about you.

I guess I'm doing something wrong! I can't get a dingbat to open by using the Text button. Please help with more info on how this is done
