Do you have the text profile tool (you can search in the command finder)? Is the text created in Solid Edge and with what tool?

Here's the tool you should be using. For some reason the text tool creates text that can't be used for extruding etc. Only the text profile tool will work.

I do have this tool but I wanted to convert my texts into profile text wich is impossible (confirmed by digicad support).

This means that I need to recreate all the texts in 'text profile' to be able to extrude them to make them appear on the surface ?!

I'm afraid it seems so. I tried various export/convert to dxf and re-import, but none of the tricks worked. I'll still try exporting to another CAD package and importing back. Sorry about this, I've had the same problem, a "learning experience"..
