Text on sheetmetal parts

When I make text on a sheetmetal part everything works fine. I disolve the text after I've got what I want. I put in the appropriate 'bridges' and I'm done.

The problem is, when I import the dxf file into SigmaNest to make a cut file, all the arcs in the text become short lines. When the laser gets to those lines, it hesitates and 'jumps around'. When it comes to a true arc, it cuts fine.

Is there a way, besides putting in new arcs in the text, to fix this??
