I am attempting to cut the text "CUT THIS" from the letter F. I've converted both "CUT THIS" and F to curves, ungrouped CUT THIS, then used geometry add  to make CUT THIS one layer. When I try to cut CUT THIS from the F with geometry subtract I get the result on the left. I cannot click and pull away on the CUT THIS and when it is unselected the CUT THIS outline disappears. I've tried with XOR and Divide with no success.

Try changing the fill mode. No need to change the Text to curves, it should work without that. You may also need to assign a fill colour after.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

Thanks it worked. Tried recreating what you did and couldn't seem to (option button)compound subtract text from text. Until I noticed it was working but, for some reason removing the fill colour.

Now is there a way to mark this solved?

Hold Alt (windows) or Option (Mac) on Keyboard and click divide with the mouse.
