Help with font in Illustrator

I downloaded a free font and the letter i has a heart for the dot. The heart is not attached and I need to cut it as part of a name I’m cutting out. I can move letters horizontally to attach them, but how do I attach the “dot” on the letter i ? I’ve done it before but it’s been a while and I can’t remember.

You’ll be able to move the dot after you convert the text to outlines and ungroup.


Perfect, thank you!


If you move the dot to touch the vertical line, be sure to do a Pathfinder merge, so they are welded together into one piece. The Glowforge will not behave as you’d expect if you have separate overlapping shapes.


Got it, thank you!
