So I'm making an SVG cut file and theres a path going through one of my letters. I've tried to remove it but that removes part of the letter too. Does anyone know a simple fix for removing the curved path thats inside the design? thanks!

My suggestion would be to try and use the delete anchor anchor point tool. you can find it by clicking on and holding on the pen tool on your tool bar. It's the one with the minus. Just click the top of the path.

Oh, I thought zooming in would help so that you could actally see the path I was mentioning. It's a letter that I created outlines for. I tried it again on a smaller scale and it worked fine, so I'm not sure what went wrong that time. Thanks for your help though!
