As long as it’s annotation text, no.
If instead you make a text object (Solid pull-down) and make curves instead of text that can be edited, then the curves will unroll since they are just curves.
You can Explode your annotation text to make unrollable curves as well, but then you can no longer edit the text as text.
I was a afraid those were the options.
While I usually don’t need to edit the text once created, I can’t use the “outlined” or “double” fonts normally generated because they will be converted to tool paths.
I found some single line fonts online that should work for me the way you mentioned.
Seeing that you - to some degree at least - have access to the windows version, this thread might be of interest to you. This is not available for the Mac version at this point of course but nevertheless serves as a pointer of what will come in the future.
