SVG only shows outline, no fill when importing to VS

Hi All, was hoping someone could help with this.  Does anyone know why in VS, the outline is being drawn and then at the end it fills in the color?  You can see below the issue I am having.  I tried to make a new path over it, set to 0 opacity, and use it as a stroke - but no luck =(

Is there a way to draw a solid line throughout (no outline, then fill)?

Any help would be appreciated, thank you!


Just a guess, since you didn't attach the SVG:
It looks like you used autotrace to convert a sketch or downloaded image to vector art. since you are not starting with regular paintbrush strokes, you don't have what you need to duplicate them and convert them to basic stroked paths at zero opacity. However you could manually draw pen or pencil paths covering the art and then change the opacity of THOSE paths to zero...
