If you're using CamBam text object, this should work as is. (except if text is rotated)

If this is an imported text (converted to polylines) or if you've converted the CamBam text object to polylines, you must first convert all characters that contain more than one polyline to region (ctrl i) for the V-Engrave works properly.
