A font I used in Flash CS3 is not recognized in Flash CS6. I'm using the latest Mac OS, so removing the ms update that people talk about isn't applicable to this. Thanks.
Well, looked at that too. Here's what I know:
• The font showed up fine in CS3, but not when I jumped to upgrade to CS6.
• The font is actually active within Flash CS6 and I can create new text using it (the font is called Thorne).
• But, existing text that is within the Flash movie I have reverted to some default font (most of these items were converted to a graphic symbol, so you'd think they'd be a path and not a font).
I'm attaching a graphic of how it looks now. You can see how it's supposed to look by going to http://www.waitnomoreonline.org
Just trying to figure out why everything reverted.
Thanks again for your help in figuring this out.
That's really what I'm trying to say: if you go to the link, that's what the font should look like. That was created two years ago. But, now I need to make a revision to the Flash file and I go to open it up in CS6 (last time I updated it was in CS3) and the font defaults to what you see in the graphic I attached and I am trying to figure out why.
If there was an easy way to do that, I would. Everything is converted to graphic form and throughout the entire movie. Do you know of a fairly simple way to apply a fix or is it just going to take up a day's work?
when you break apart a font character it is no longer a font character. it's a shape. end of story.
not only is it not a font character, it cannot be treated like a font character and there's nothing you can do (i don't think) to reconstitute a font character even by repeatedly grouping the shape.
so, it wasn't a font character in cs3 either after you converted it so why do you think this is a cs6 issue?
Because it was created in CS3 and appeared just as it does in the link. Everything was converted to graphics. But, when I open in CS6 (after upgrading), it's a totally different font. You're saying it couldn't have shifted and I agree, but somehow it did. I'm just wondering how. It absolutely was fully produced in CS3 and all converted to graphics. If I had CS3 installed, I would see it correctly. I'm just very confused and sounds like you are as well.
I believe I'm using the correct terminology when I say that the font groups were selected, then I went to Modify > Convert to Symbol > Graphic. So, these fonts have been converted to graphics. And in CS6, they are reverting to a default font rather than the font which they were originally before they were converted to a graphic. It shows up in CS3 correctly, but not in CS6. Do you know why?
