Newby Problem with cutting path

I am having an issue that I’m sure is common but I searched the forum and didn’t come across a fix. The issue I am having is with an SVG that I imported, when I try to cut, it shows that the center to one letter “a” doesn’t carve but the others do. I’ve tried to move it forward and back but it just doesn’t recognize that there is a path there to cut. Here is a screen shot of what I am talking about.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,

Can you share the project link?
You can move a set of the good a and the bad a over to a new project if you dont want to share the whole thing.

In easel go to project>share and set it to “unlisted” and copy the link shown, then paste the link over here.


Here you go Seth.

and thank you!

Here’s what I did, and some other info about what I would probably do for this carve. . .

I recommend following the steps in the video for your own practice, BUT in case you are having a bit of trouble OR are on a time crunch, since I already did it, here’s the resulting Project from the video:

Thank you so much! This is a learning process, I only completed my first carve last weekend. You and your videos (along with Paw Paws Workshop and Mark Lindsay among others) have taught me everything I know about CNC. Your help is greatly appreciated. I will definitely make all the changes you have recommended.
