Sketching tab of the Ribbon in the Insert section you will find Text Profile.  Use that to create the text sketch and then extrude it to create your cut.

Look for "Solid Edge Stencil".

No that important but some parts of my assembly have originally been draw with solid works.  The imported part don't have the same color. Even after i edit it as steel.

the hole i did in the part have the same color of my assembly but not the original faces.

You'll need to use "Part Painter" to apply the "Steel" color, but make sure the selection filter is on "Body"...to override the "as translated" part color.

Is there any way to link the text to a custom property so that it will update when the custom property updates?
