Is it possible to create a shape from an outline in Affinity Designer?

For example if I have a straight line with a set stroke width of 12px which isn't a "closed shape" like it's needed for certain printing techniques:

is there some way to create a closed shape from a line with stroke, in this simple case 2 points (line from A to B), to have a shape without outline, with 4 points and a width of 12px? Without doing that completely manually?

Edit:

Ok, forget it. Found the option in the layer settings via the upper menu. At first I looked in the context menu of the layer, which didn't help much. :)

Sounds like Layer>Expand Stroke is what you need.  You probably want to use a square caps on the ends of your initial stroke so there are only 4 nodes.
