All Caps Option and other text tool general questions

Feb 12, 2013 10:00 AM

Is there an ALL CAPS option in flash? This is for static text.

 

Also can you manipulate text size, leading, kerning using quick keys?

I've searched online for this and found nothing.

    for static text?  what's the problem using your keyboard caps lock?

     

    and check your shortcuts for text properties you can use with shortcuts: edit>keyboard shortcuts.

    if you want to copy lower case text and paste as upper case, you'll need a work-around:  use a dynamic textfield, assign an instance name (eg, tf) and use:

     

    tf.text=tf.text.toUpperCase();

    it works the same in as2.  if you have a textfield with instance name tf, use:

     

    tf.text=tf.text.toUpperCase();
