HELP using dingbats with scal via inkscape

As a follow up to my other inkscape lessons , i have had many requests for help
with dingbats fonts
there is one thing extra to do with dingbats to be able to use the other
lessons in the same way
LETS BEGIN
Open inkscape , find your font you want to cut

Select it with arrow, Go path, Object to path

Now View , Display mode, Outline

And you have your design ready to work on

Ready to go Path, Break apart NOW TO either of the lessons
Double lines,
black base part 1 ,
part 2,

Your lessons have helped me so much with learning how to use Inkscape (and SCAL) not to mention the Cricut Design Studio software too! Thank you so much Susan. :)

Can you walk through how you would get rid of the lines? I tried doing it and it didnt do anything, I couldnt get it to give me the trace image using the tutorial on lines.

Susan, you are the best. Thanks LOADS. I've got sooooo many fonts that I want to try this on.

I am really new to all of this and I have a question which is probably stupid. I downloaded a few dingbats but I don't understand what Inkscape is. Is this something else I need to get now to print the dingbats with SCAL?

I have tons of Dingbat Fonts and everytime I try to "fix 'em" I can't get to the part where I can edit/remove nodes... had to do the first 2 steps...

THANK YOU!
