Font not recognized in Flash CS6

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.

    search this forum for help with mac font problems.  most seem due to a corrupt cached font.

    i can't tell you why.

     

    but why you don't just fix the fonts in cs6?

    unless you or some other program converted your text to graphics, they wouldn't be converted. 

     

    did you decompile a swf to (re)create a fla?

    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?

    why do you keep saying everything was converted to graphics?  if you break apart a font character it's converted to a shape, not a graphic.

    what do you mean by "font groups were selected"?

     

    do you mean text was selected and you converted text to a graphic?  if yes, why?
