Unfortunately, Carbide Create doesn’t allow for composite objects when doing a Boolean union, so a selection of everything results in:

The workaround is to do this in two passes. First select the letter and some additional bit of non-interfering geometry and do a Boolean operation to convert it into a path:

then select the S and duplicate it

Then select one copy of the S and the outer circle and do Boolean Union:

resulting in:

Then select the inner circle and control click on the remaining letter:

(the letter needs to be the key object as indicated by a dashed selection)

and do Boolean Subtraction:

which is what I believe you want. If not, let us know and we’ll try to help puzzle it out.
