Short description of error
I can no longer convert grease pencil objects to a curve or a mesh. Nothing visually changes, and no new layers are created.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. Add a blank grease pencil
  2. Draw on the surface of the default cube
  3. In object mode, F3 to Convert to Curve/Mesh



Event Timeline

Yeah I've tried that a couple times too. But all I get them converted to are paths/curves

I can convert to Curves. Did you try these options?

I think I figured it out.
I understand how it works now;Just tried it; I had to convert the Grease Pencil to Polygon Curves first, then convert that new Polygon Curve object to Mesh.
Much thanks! :-)
