Text in Solidworks

All,
How do I get SolidWorks (2004) to display/print text on a sketch as solid
text vs. the outline of the letters? I am trying to create camera ready art
for a silk screen.
My examples have to be displayed in "Courier New" font to look right.
They can be pasted into notepad.
What I get is like this:
___
/ _ \
/
/ \ \
/ /
\ \
| /_____\ \
| _____ |
| | | |
|_| |_|
What I want is like this:
###
## ##
## ##
## ##
#########
## ##
## ##
Also, SolidWorks insists on saving/printing a small dot at the lower left
corner of the text block. Is there a way to suppress that?
Thanks so much! I am very green at this program.

I don't think Solidworks is the best to use to to artwork going to screen printing.
I would generally pick either a 2D CAD program or one of Adobe's Illustrator to do text work, though lots of programs can output good text.

1) extrude the letters into a part, and then make a drawing of the part--this will get rid of the dot 2) in the drawing, use a solid cross hatch, and you'll get solid letters instead of outline

For silk screens, I use Corel Draw. Then, I save them as a .jpeg and insert them in the part drawing.
