Saved DXF Doesn't Show Text

Here's another newby question. Please keep in mind that I'm really trying to figure things out before I ask the questions, but I can figure this out. I have my sketch open in 360, and see the text. I've right clicked on the sketch, and save it as a DXF. When trying to open it in any program the text doesn't appear.

 

Here's link to the drawing (hopefully).

most likely, you will need to "Explode" the text to get it to export to DXF.  DXF does not understand Fusion text.  I'll try it on your model shortly.

that link doesn't work.  I think you sent the link to your hub.  Instead follow the instructions here:  How-to-share-a-Fusion-360-design  and paste the shared public link here, or export the F3D and just attach it here.  Or, just try exploding the text.

I've actually fixed the issue on my own. I found the "explode text" took care of the issue for me.

thanks.  Looks like you were able to Explode the text.  Now the round-trip DXF seems to work on this design.  Are you good to go?
