Hi, I don't do signcut but did you convert the text to a path?  If you want to post the file someone will be able to diagnose the issue for you.

Hi, I use to use Sign Cut but swapped to a different program about 2 years ago. If I have read your question correctly I don't think it is a Sign Cut error, I think it is the Inkscape file. I would suggest you look at your design in outline mode (view>display mode> outline). The design will now show only outlines which also happen to be your cutting lines. If you create a shape, text, etc and add a stroke the cutter does not recognise the stroke width. If you have a thin line instead of the desired thicker line, select the text and apply Path>Stroke to Path.
As I mentioned in outline mode you will see that stroke width does not show. If you have two lots of text on top of each other and one has a thicker stroke, in outline mode they will look identical and it will appear as if there is only one lot of text.
Like Susan said in her comment, if you can post the file here, we can have a look and try to help further.
