Can anyone help me connect the middle Alphabet letters on a monogram sign

I am trying to make a monogram sign with a name in the middle but it keeps cutting out the middle name.

What design software are you using?


And, post pics of what you tried to do and what happened.

Here’s a quick example of how I’d do it in Illustrator:

In steps:

  1. Create text
  2. Create outlines of text
  3. Ungroup the text outlines
  4. Draw little rectangles where you want connectors to the middle bits of a letter
  5. Select the letter and the little rectangle and use pathfinder tools, like “Minus front” or “Minus back”, depending on the ordering of your layers.

It can take a little practice to get use to how these pathfinder tools work, and there are a few different ways to do it, but something like this is what you should try.
