Once you define a tag, it is defined. InkCanvas is different from a Canvas. The drawings done on an InkCanvas are in Ink Serialized Format (ISF). The way to convert would be to to create a Canvas, transfer properties, then replece the InkCanvas in the VisualTree with this Canvas. More than likely the path you drew was not ink, so would be in ISF. You cannot interact with Ink anyway. If you want the capability to interact with paths, then you probably will have to create your own control with the abiiity to interact with the items on the canvas (of course you can also try to interact with canvas using events). You can look at[^] for work done on converting ink to drawing. I do have a project I did I can send you, but it only does paths and some shapes.
