Is there a way to export text " Material: ****"  AS text Entity to DXF?

I would like to be able to include a Note in my DXF export that would indicate the material, However when i create the note as a sketch on the part and include sketches in my DXF the text is dissolved into Polyline segments rather than being exported as a text entity as if i had created the text in Draftsight.


If it were just a visual label this would be fine but it is actually meant to be recognized by a CAM software when importing the DXF and it only seems to recognize TEXT entities. ( I tested this by creating TEXT in Draftsight DXF after SW Export.)


I have tried different fonts , as well as the DXF Options switch between Trutype Fonts and AutoCAD Fonts, with no luck.


I've attached an example DXF , The Green text was created in Draftsight and does work with my CAM software,

The red text is exported from a sketch in SW and is not recognized by the CAM software.
