I just opened up flash cs6 and found out that the text tool isn't working right. It lets me select the tool and place a text box, but the text is not showing up. It is taking up space in the text box, but I cannot see it. The alpha is 100% already, I don't know what's going on.
Thank you for the response. I uninstalled the update (which seemed like it would do the trick) but I am still having the same issue. Perhaps there is another update that went along with that one that is also preventing the text? What do you think?
Actually, I only deleted the single update that matched the one you provided. Was I suposed to delete a package of updates?
The security updates address critical vulerabilites. Without them, a malicious website may be able to run code on your computer simple when you visit it. So I'd recommend only uninstalling them if you really must. It would be better to wait for Microsoft to fix their problem, but who knows how long this will take.
As a workaround, if you don't want to be removing Microsoft Security updates until they have been fixed (this exact problem was introduced previously on MacOS and later rectified also) we have found that converting the fonts you have problems with into TTF via an application such as http://www.freefontconverter.com/ allows the fonts to function correctly.
There are better ways of converting large volumes of fonts if you require to do so, but if you're simply having an issue with one or two fonts that you need until MS fix their update, we've found this to be a suitable workaround.
