Long time user but a seldom poster has this question: why when I export a drawing with vector text it re-imports it as TrueType? This has been a real heart burn when sending cut files (plasma cut on aluminum boats) that have characters etched superficially on parts to aid assembly. The receiver of said files has the same problem and I want to clean this up to lessen the cutters work and thus save me $.

Using v16 now.

Before exporting, use Edit/SelectionEdit/Convert/VectorConvert.

Even works on non-vector fonts.

Thank you for that! Works like a charm. Now if I could just conquer the 'end points not joined' problem with the CNC process I'd be a happy camper.
