Simplifying paths can be a cool tool to make straight contours or paths with less unrequired handles. There are different possibilities like using Flatten Beziers or running Path → Simplify (CTRL + L). The difference is that simplify will not convert into polylines. It will still keep the bezier type but with less handles than before. We could also use Shape Recognition.

Lets take some fractalized path (lot of handles).

Press CTRL + L

The more repeats the more simplification:

We can reduce it down to two handles (but it will make no sense)
