@Tristan-Copley-Smith If you have the default settings and use Sketch to write the text it will do exactly what you want, if you import the text as an image you would need to trace it. Right click the trace icon for auto-trace or use the menu, then it will be vector and follow the paths as you expect. You can also import DXF files, from Inkscape or a CAD program.
I don't have specific videos for the EleksDraw but the process is the same, so if watch the videos you should get a better idea of the basics.
Inkscape has a lot of different plug ins, you can probably create something similar and export as DXF.
T2Laser supports using DXF colors as different pens, you can have it pause to swap pens to get multi-color drawings.
