Does it work when you convert the text to paths? (Path > Object to Path)

Have you used a different kind of text, e.g. flowed text, instead of normal text, this time?

Have you updated either Inkscape or the third-party signcut extension?

I don't have that extension, but these would be things I'd check.

i cant put the numbers to a straight path, text is the same as normal but i had to renew my signcut licience earlier in the month ?

"i cant put the numbers to a straight path" - sorry, I don't understand, can you explain? Does it work if you convert the text to a path, as the program demands?
You can select all texts in your drawing if you click on a text, then right-click on it, then do Select same -> Object type. Then convert as described above.

If this workaround doesn't help, for reporting bugs with the signcut extension, please visit the extension author's support site.

Can you help with this problem?
