How to plot text as text?

Hello,

 

What kind of settings / fonts / text styles I have to use in order to plot to a pdf with text staying text and not converting to a  linework in the final pdf file?

 

At the moment text is plotted as "hatched polygons":

it cannot be selected / edited in the PDF editor.

 

PDF documents created from MS Word or MS Excel export text as a text.

 

 

I tried few default styles / fonts, but all of them plot as polylines not text:

Most of them don't even "re-import" back to the TBC when importing a vector PDF:

 

 

I'd like a "+" be a "+" character, single byte, not dozens and dozens of lines:

 

Is something like this doable?
