SVG imports don't import text

If I create a new image in Inkscape and add some text say with a font of 'Bookshelf Symbol 7' then import into FlatCAM, it doesn't show up. If I then draw a free hand line on the same image and then import it again then the free hand drawing appears but the text doesn't. Why is this, am I doing something wrong and can I only use certain types of fonts? Great software by the way, your hard work is very much appreciated!! ;)

In the svgparse.py from FlatCAM, the header has the following paragraph: "# SVG Features supported: # # * Groups* # # * Rectangles (w/ rounded corners) * # # * Circles * # # * Ellipses* # # * Polygons * # # * Polylines * # # * Lines * # # * Paths * # # * All transformations * # # # # Reference: www.w3.org/TR/SVG/Overview.html " It says nothing about fonts :) or text.
