Help with a file

OK I am sheepishly asking for help with a file. A friend asked me to do a cutout of script initials for her granddaughter’s Easter basket. I decided to experiment with my own initials. I created the file in Inkscape but it is cutting into a hundred little pieces instead of one. I don’t think they are different layers.

I feel like I ought to be able to do this with ease. My design skills are way behind my imagination.

I am not asking you to do this for me. Just please advise me what I need to do. I am attaching the file as an example.

Thanking you in advance.

It’s a pretty common question :slight_smile:
You just need to “union” the letters together. Jules is probably about to post the exact instructions any second.
