text box restrict characters issue

Apr 9, 2013 7:55 AM

I'm relatively new to Flash programming, and I'm having an issue where all of the text boxes will only allow characters 2,3, and 4 to be entered. They have been setup with the .restrict = "0-9 ." to allow all numbers.  I even created a test text box, and that has the same issue.  Is there something that I am missing that is causing this?  I'm using Flash Pro CS6 on a Windows XP machine.

    Usually when characters do not appear in a textfield it means the font needs to be embedded in the textfield.  If the textfield is on the stage, select it and in the Properties panel click the Embed button and choose the characters/font you wish to use for the textfield.
