Can I weld text and a shape together?

Hi All, I just started w/ LightBurn (Duh) and I want to make this piece to hang on my Granddaughter’s wall. I can’t seem to figure out how to weld the “R” to the Circle so I can cut this out of 1/4" birch plywood. I tried the Weld feature but the R just disappears.

I watched the tutorials but I didn’t see anything applicable to my situation. I’d appreciate any advice forum members can impart.
Thanks!

Select the text then hold shift and select the inner circle. Click the weld on the left bar. Its probably going to be one of the boolean choices to work correctly.

Thanks for the reply Jeff, it actually wasn’t shift but “Alt” instead and one of the boolean welds so, you got me almost to the finish line lol! So, I count that as you solving my problem. Thanks so much man!
