That is what you get when you dissolve text. Bunches of short line segments. It is a function of how text linework is created compared to the CAD line data.
Nothing you can do to change that.
Most CAM systems do not deal well with splines. They need straight line segments and true radii and diameters.
That is why text is a royal pain in the arse to work with in many CAD systems.
i see what your saying about fonts lot of my work is engraving in wood at the momant i save as a dxf then ann new layer and spline around my work
but why do i get long streight lines when i draw a arc but dont happen in a circle meaning i can delete a circle with 1 click but an arc is made up of lots of lines
i have to draw it as a part as it seems i cannot open a drawing/dxf and put fonts in them (font always grayed out)
thanks for your help john
Anna is right. When you are going from one system to another, each program
is written in code a certain way, performing in the background to give you what
each command is advertised to give you. When you convert to another program
it too is written in code, but different. So it translates and makes educated guesses
as to what it thinks you are looking for with the tools it has. As you are seeing it
has to give you lines (a lot of them) in order not to mess with the overall integrity
of your file. It is what it is. I too have experienced this and the biggest pains
like Anna mentioned are text and splines. Circles are easy round with no ends
at a specific location. Nothing rocket science about them.
Hopefully this helps a little and makes some sense.
