Some device fonts not appearing under 11.0.1.152

Oct 6, 2011 8:36 AM

Tags: #lion #11

Mac OSX 10.7.1 (Lion)

Safari 5.1

Firefox 6.0.2

 

 

I have several swfs published for FP 10 & 10.1 which have been working fine under FP 10.3.182.10 in both Safari and Firefox.

 

The swfs have code that displays a device font ("_sans") for certain languages, such as Greek, Russian etc. After upgrading to 11.0.1.152 some of the device font text is not appearing. I say some as it stills appears correctly in some places but not everywhere.

 

I have re-installed 10.3.182.10 and it works perfectly again in both browsers.

 

In case this problem was related just to the browser plug in I also installed the standalone player for 11.0.1.152 (Flash Player Debugger) and ran the swf from my desktop by double clicking it. Once again the fonts stopped displaying correctly.

If I run Test Movie from within Flash Professional, the text appears correctly as I have installed 10.3.182.10 as the version under "Players" in the Flash Professional installation folder.

 

Can anybody shed any light on what is going on here?

    Did you mean the character is not diaplayed at all or the character is not displayed with expected font?

    Would you mind send me the screenshot of the problem and simple source code that can help reproducing it?

     

    Thanks!

    My site is having the same issue. Not a good update. This needs to be fixed immediately. The look of it is attrocious. My site is completely bogged up now. You can't even read some stuff.

     

    I had made a text layer, and a whitebackground. The text moves accross a small box like title. The whitebackground went black. Text is black so now it's not visible.

    The flash files appear fine without the update. Als files appear fine on local computer, but once placed on site, browser doesn't show them correctly.

     

    Also flash works great in firefox, Ie however does not.

    @Scott If you have a link or perhaps a sample file that shows the reproducible case, we can further investigate. You are seeing this issue on a Window system? Which version.

     

    Thanks

    www.jaftech.com  is the company website with the issue.

     

    There is a banner at the top of the main text area. It's the only small flash piece I have added to the website. The banner is 2 layers only lol.

     

    Also, here is a screenshot of the current problem I see on my end. In IE only.

    This is Firefox with same flash version. Working as intended.

    I can't reproduce the problem from my end. I used both IE8 and IE9. Not sure why you are only seeing this on your machine.. Let's see if we can narrow this problem.

     

    What is your machine configuration?

    OS version:

    IE version: (if you're on a 64bit Windows, are you using the 64bit version of IE or 32bit?)

     

    Looking at your Settings Manager, it looks like your Firefox has Flash Player 10.3, if you update to Flash Player 11 for FireFox plugin, will that browser also see the same issue as IE?

     

    View the source of jaftech.com, looks the the SWF is embeded with wmode=transparent, if you change to wmode=window, will that fix the problem on IE?

     

    What of text are you using? The classic TextField or the new TLF text? Do you use embed any fonts? Any masking involve? Feel free to email privately if you like.

    If you mask textfield, you must use embedded fonts or else the text will not show up. It's strange that you can see the text with FP 10.3.182.10. Can I take a look at your sample source file?

    The text didnt seem to have an affect. I tried that first.

     

    Changing from wmode=transparent to wmode=window fixed it for me. I ended up having to change it to wmode=opaque to prevent it from overlapping menu items when hovering.

     

     

    Thank you.

    Hi everyone!

     

    I had the same issue and fixed it by setting the mask through code:

    tlfContainer.mask = tlfMask;

     

    Hope it helps

    I can confirm that one too. Every button with a label provided and inputfields are no longer showing any text... both on IE9 and FF6.

    I can also confirm this bug.  After reading this thread I'm in the exact same situation.   I have comboboxes / checkboxes under a mask with embedded fonts.  In old versions of the flash player they display properly.  When I check it in Flash Player 11 in the browser, they vanish.

    We are addressing the 'Device font not appearing under mask'  issue in bug #3005808 and it will be included in Flash Player future release. You can verify it in our future public release build.

    I had the same problem, fonts were not showing in Firefox no matter what Flash Player version I used.

     

    Fortunatelly, I found the solution and made an account to share it with you

     

    It seems that the "hidden" fonts were all non-standard fonts and my guess is that's an Action Script related issue.

     

    All I had to do was embeed the fonts into the FLA and set them to export for Action Script, using this tutorial (http://www.jumpeyecomponents.com/publicfiles/tutorials/embeding_fonts. htm) then publish again and bam! It worked.

     

    I hope it will also work for you.

    It seems there's enormous problem with FP11 over net. This looks like the worst FP release ever.
