Hi, I'm teaching myself to use illustrator and would like to know how to round the point of the K the red arrow is pointed at I already managed to
round all the other ends of the kay by pulling in the small circles in the corners but am unsure what method I could use for the final part because
there doesn't seem to be a round corner maker I can pull in. Hope that makes sense:X3:
Thank you.

Wow, you're amazing thank you so much for taking the time to show me that. Can I ask if you know of any YouTube videos etc that teach I guess the illustrator basics but especially customising type? I've made my way through a 3hr YouTube video on illustrator for beginners and that's been helpful. I guess a lot of it is trial and error? Thanks again

I would never suggest using youtbue - you're learning from amatures who have no idea what they are doing and making mechanical errors in their processes.

I would recommend something like LinkedIn Learning you can get a free 1 month there on the site and they have lots of tutorials.

This blog is also a must

They have books Real World Illustrator - and I'd highly recommend buying that book and having it as a go to on your desk.
