William, it would
help to see the bitmap or converted path to see if what I'm suggesting
will work, but it was scrubbed. Here's what I would suggest.
Make sure that your converted bitmap is indeed a single path. You will
get feedback about this in the taskbar when you select the object. If

ungroup, etc, until you have a single path. A single path can of course
have many many separated shapes in it with space in between them
Then, in the path menu, choose 'ungroup'. You should then see your
shapes separated into a series of selection boxes all selected at once.
Click away with the selector, then select individual circles. If you
have overlapping circles, they will become a single object in a single
Hope this helps.
