Would love to see Solid Edge have a single line font to use for etching and the ability to explode text in the 2D draft environment.
Dan says always this: "Stay tuned"
But I suggest using Inkscape what provides "stick font" for eaching and much more! Freee!
That is what I normally do when I have to add text to a project. The big inconvenience is when I get a .dwg from a customer. If I had an explode text option I would not have to use another software or re create the text geometry.
