I'm trying to clean up the letter "k" here and can't delete the faces where I've circled. I tried selecting the vertices and holding shift, but it just won't select all of them. How can I do this? Thanks

  • $\begingroup$ I downloaded your file and after converting the text to mesh (alt+c) it allowed me to delete any of the faces I want. What is it doing when you try to delete it? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ You might find the edge along the bottom of the target face the easiest to select and delete. $\endgroup$

  • Convert the text to mesh using Alt+C
  • Switch to Face Selection as shown below

  • Select the face you want to remove, and choose the Knife tool to cut the part you don't want as shown below and then hit Enter:

  • Select the part you want to delete then hit x and choose delete Faces as shown below:

  • $\begingroup$ But for some reason I am unable to select the actual area I want (where I highlighted in my screenshot). I tried limit selection to visible but no matter how slowly and accurately I try to select the vertices, it just won't do it. Is there something else I am missing? $\endgroup$
