The website from where I took this picture is a religious one and it had the i (capital letter) modified to symbolize a small cross. Maybe for some it's easy to do this but for me as a starter it's quite tricky. I will not use the font from this image. I will use another font to write the text-logo I want afterwich I want to modify the i to symbolize a cross. Any suggestions on how to do this? Thank you!

PS. I know how to work only in Illustrator, Gimp and Inkscape.

this is not a T but a capital I

    Copy, rotate the "I" and scale it down? Can you tell us what you have tried and why that didn't work. – AndrewH Nov 15 '16 at 19:01

    What software are you actually using? (You tagged 3) – Cai Nov 15 '16 at 19:47
  • @Cai I am using all of them but mostly Inkscape and Illustrator – Bangoo James Nov 15 '16 at 20:16

With illustrator, you can do it by this way:

  1. Type a word with text tool (just press the letter t and type)
  2. Select the text and then expand it (Type > Create Outlines or cmd+shift+o)
  3. Add a basic shape (press the letter m in order to select the rect tool)
  4. Open the pathfinder (Window > Pathfinder)
  5. Select the letter "i" of your word and then hold the shift button to select the shape
  6. Click on the merge icon from the pathfinder window

Hope this work for you.
