Exporting

It seems to work well if you export to DXF with these settings:

  • DXF Format
  • AutoCad Version = R13/LT95
  • 1:1 Scale (1 Inch = 1 Unit)
  • Preserve Appearance

A reminder that all text should be converted to outlines and double/triple check that only one outline exists (if the stroke was also converted to an outline/compound path). Object menu -> Expand. Then the word must be ungrouped.
