    How do you covnert/expand a line to a fill object in InDesign?

      I have made an open-ended path in InDesign and would like to convert and would like to convert it to a closed fill object (keeping the exact shape of the path) but I see no expand or outline stroke options in InDesign. Is there another method?

          If you mean convert the stroke to a filled shape, as you could using Expand in Illustrator, then you need to copy the path, paste into Illustrator, expand, copy, and paste back into ID, which has no expand capability of its own. It would take less effort to start in Illustrator, expand, and then either paste into ID (if it needs to be editable) or Place into ID as a linked resource (if you plane to use it multiple times).
