Hello, I am wanting to make a stencil to cut out on our CNC plasma table. I have downloaded a stencil font from the web, and have no problem adding text with that font into my drawing.

However, the problem is that our CNC table does not read and cut the text properly unless it is drawn as line segments. How can I convert text into a series of lines outlining each letter? With software I have used in the past, I can simply explode the text and it leaves the perimeter of the text as line segments.
