I have projected text on a cylinder surface in an assembly using a datum sketch and I also tried a cosmetic sketch, but the text is only an outline of the text. Is there a way to fill the text outline and make it solid?

Use the Offset feature to create surface or solid geometry of the text. In WF5 you must select the surface (use the geometry selection filter) you want your text to extrude off of. In the Offset feature mode use the With Draft option and then use a 0 degree draft to extrude it straight. I think there is also an option to project the sketch (text in your case) so it is normal to the sketch plane OR normal to the surface you are projecting off of.
Hope this helps. Good Luck
