Works perfect here.
- Did you leave the simulation mode with Cancel or with Ok?
- If it's Ok there will be some residues "Cut material"; delete them.
- Did you select the Job for simulation or something else?

I've tried a few variations. This time I opened shapeString-cb2, clicked on ShapeString, added another x to make the string 'More Textx', recalculate everything, selected Job and simulate. It doesn't simulate.

You need the current development version,which you can install in parallel to your stable version. The dev version seems currently to be very stable as well.

Just downloaded and installed the AppImage for v18 and repeated the test. Works perfectly!
I will continue to use v18 and continue my quest to master FreeCAD

Many thanks again
