top documentation is missing from gerber plots

When I create gerber plots to send to the pcb manufacturer, the top documentation does not include any text - as seen in the preview section of the "output manufacturing plots" window. Component outlines are present. The text is definatley assigned to top documentation. This fault is also irrespective of font type.

I just checked here on DS PCB 8.1.1, and it doesn't look like text is displayed in the plot preview of other layers either. But the text is present in the generated output plot.
I presume the text is not included in the preview window because it usually would be too small to be legible anyway. You can use a utility like gerbv to view the actual gerber files and verify the presence of the text there.

I checked with our support team and it is not a reported issue. I suggest raising a support ticket and sending your project files to them for examination.
