I'm given an svg file with a logo that has both text and an illustration.. it appears as a single entity in my sketch application.. is there a way to separate it (ie i want to remove the robot from this logo).. I remember I used to be able to do stuff like this in Illustrator
The icon on the left shows you it is a raster (bitmap) image, which means it is not made up of layers, but of pixels. You can't edit individual elements like in a vector image. You may be able to edit it in a raster image editor, such as Photoshop, but you will have a hard time doing major edits.
