Embedding Fonts for iOS

Apr 27, 2011 6:41 AM

Are you able to embedd your fonts in Flash Pro for iOS like you can for every other type of flash project?  When I make a textfield a specific font such as myriad pro, embedd it in my library, and compile to my ipod... it shows up as some serif font that is definitely not myriad pro.  The text field is a tlf textfield that I added underlining to.

 

I can't seem to find any information regarding this.  Please help.

    It should work - provided you have properly embedded the font. This can be tricky, as on the desktop it may look correct when you test it (because it uses the syste font with the same name). It should work though - I'm not sure of the performance of TLF though - I usually use classic text.

    Also forgot to mention - make sure you set the textLayout.swc to "merged into code" in the advanced AS3 dialog - it won't work as an RSL on iPhone.

    In the Advanced ActionScript 3.0 Settings dialog, in the Library path  tab, click on textLayout.swc.  Below the box that textLayout.swc is  listed in, there is a drop down:

    Runtime Shared Library Settings

    Default linkage: [Runtime shared library (RSL)]


    Change that to [Merged into Code]

    You'll need to do that for any swcs that are set to use RSL by default,  if you want them to work on iOS.

    Just wanted to thank Kevin for his helpful post!

     

    Until I saw his comment I thought that TLF wasn't available or working on iOS devices!

     

    Thanks
