Importing text svg from inkscape

good evening all, I am trying to make a Christmas sign. I downloaded the font from dafont. I then made the arched word in inkscape. selected the word. chose object to path which it confirmed. however easel will not accept. still saying cannot import text svg. I then just grabbed a general font out of inkscape and that one didnt work either. I have imported text the same way before. not sure why it is not working now. any ideas guys?

Any chance you have some text off screen? Can you share the SVG?

Did you select the word and then Object to Path. then overwrite the file.

when I tried this it gave the error as described, and continued to give the error when I used the save funtion. Until I used save as which was then confirmed with the standard (file already exist do you want to overwrite?) then it imported without error.
