Simple Text Query (I hope)


New member
Hello, I am a very basic user of Solid Edge 2019.

I can add a line of text using the annotation option which is great when I want to engrave solid text on a surface

I can add some text around a shape, for example around a circle though to do this I have (I believe) to use the Insert, Text Profile feature. This allows me to create the text but it shows as an outline of the chosen font instead of the desired solid text that I get when using the text annotation option.

How can I make this text solid (filled in) instead of the outline that I am generating at the moment?
