I would try converting the text to path (Ctrl+Shift+C),
ungrouping the characters (Ctrl+Shift+G),
and then combining them back together (Ctrl+K), and see if that would result in a better dxf file.
By the way, at the momement I'm working with just one character/font.
That procedure worked. You are a star.
I did what you said and I saw the drawing of a font come up in DraftSight.
I then proceded to put a dimension line on. Which I could, and shows a dimension value. But I need to tinker the get the demensions right. At the moment in DraftSight, when I finally can make out the number, the font is huge on the screen. Think there is some kind of Baseline Tool in DraftSight that might help.
So, to recap: I'm using Inkscape to "draw" a font. Doing the procedure you said. Then saving as DXF. Then opening up the file in an engineering drawing program called DraftSight.
