I have an issue with text manipulation in Sketch. I want to change how letter A looks, so I need to delete the horizontal line so it will look like an upside down V.

I converted my text to Outline, but I still can't find a way to delete it.

Any ideas ?

  • Have you also looked at an upside down V? Rotate by 180 degrees. Sometimes when I alter a type, it doesn't look right.

So the first step is to creat text layer with A letter: enter image description here

After convert the letter to Outlines: enter image description here

Then press Edit icon on toolbar, it enable vector points on letter: enter image description here

You should connect two pair of vector points as shown below enter image description here

Just drag one point to another it will snap to each other automatically: enter image description here

After connecting vector points to each other, press Enter to exit from Edit mode, and the result is: enter image description here


You want to manipulate the pathways in the same way you would in Illustrator or the like.

You manipulate the paths by using anchors, I have linked a video that shows how to manipulate a Letter A in the way you describe in Sketch.
