So, you want the area inside the letters to be filled?

Then in the gcode tools, use the 'area' extension. and play around with it, or look for a good tutorial (there are several on youtube, for example).

If you would rather like to use letters that do not need to be filled, because they only consist of single strokes, please look into the 'Hershey text' extension: Extensions > Render > Hershey text
