Convert stroke to fill?

"Expand Stroke" works only with the first type of brushes: Solid Brushes. The other brushes align pixel textures to a vector curve. And you can't expand pixel strokes to vector strokes. The denotation "Vector Brush" is a little bit misleading in this case. Only the core of this brush strokes is a vector.

Select the line. Go In the menu "Layer" and select "Expand Stroke". After that your line is a filled shape that you can use with compound shapes.
Hope that could help.

I can't find this option for a drawn rectangle, even after converting it to curves.

That is because it is a feature of Affinity Designer & you are using Affinity Photo.

Thank you, @R C-R. You're right. I found it in Affinity Designer and worked.

The reason I asked was to be able to scale the stroke with the object. Now I also found that both Photo and Designer have the option to Scale with object, which also solves my problem.

Thank you!

Just in case: You can copy&paste from AD into APh or Boolean Subtract shapes in APh to get "Expanded stroke":

Please ignore this brainless reply of mine. FWIW, your screenshot shows AP, not APh, & boolean subtract is available in that app as well.

If you hover over your text, you may note that both AP and APh are "Affinity Photo".

I read APh as AffinityPhoto and you?

Yeah, me too. I just made the mistake of reading the topic before my first cup of coffee kicked in. 🙁
