@Moini!!! Is in my TODO list. not sure how to handle. Not sure if there is a spec in SVG2 to follow or we need to use insensitive clones.

Aha :) Yes, clones with a wider stroke would work. They actually do already (why haven't we explored that option in this thread? Original needs: no fill, unset stroke, then stroke color and width of clones can be set independantly), but the original object is hard to edit when invisible...
And of course, they don't move with the original always.

Linked offsets always close their own path, so they wouldn't work.

Hi Moini. The idea is store a copy of the path probabily with the clone original LPE in DEFS section but with unseted fill and stroke color. After this, clone it and make it insensitive to not allow editing, but is a fast idea, i need a closer look.

I think they speak about clones, but have problems with markers coloring. I hope the code to colored markers be droped in 0.93 by the correct SVG implementation trought CSS, dont recall the CSS order. suv give me this background and I use in the this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mozaiznTDTs

Cheers, Jabier.

That was in the first reply.
Doesn't really work with markers.
