Help with Embedded Fonts

May 23, 2012 9:59 AM

Hello -


I am using FlashEFF for a few text effects in our online advertising banners.  I have five embedded fonts.  Now the problem is that the file size is huge due to the embedded fonts.


Is it true that if a user does not have that font on their computer that they will see a default font? 


I am using the following fonts:


Helvetica Neue:  65 Medium, 77 Bold Condensed, 95 Black




Futura LT:  Bold and Book




Thank you for any guidance on this.

    You can embed only the essentials characters.


    And yes if the user has not the font only see a default font


    Helvetica is installed only in mac

    When you embed a font, you can embed only some characters


    Select the textfield (Dynamic or input) press "Embed" button deselect all the "Character Ranges" and type the characters to use in the section "Also include these characters"


    If you are using static text, you don´t need embed fonts, everybody see your fonts with static text.

    Is the font embeded in another dynamic text field?

    If you embed the font in any other text field that is applied every time you use this font.

    Sometimes take any font similar or similarly named
