Having font issues exporting to Flash Player 8 using CS6. The problem is both PC (Windows 7) and Mac (10.8.3). The font in dynamic text boxes will not display properly, ie reverting to regular or not at all. Seems to be when using demi/semi and sometimes bold type, Myriad Pro Semibold/Avenir Demi in particular. Any help gratefully appreciated. Note: Has to be Flash Player 8 due to client.

    Have you embedded the characters you need? If so, are you publishing your files individually, or as part of a project?

    And how are you publishing? I wouldn't have asked if it weren't relevant

    Are you publishing it from the project panel or not?

    What do you see when you tell it to generate a release build in the publish settings about what fonts and characters are embedded?

    Seriously, if I have to repeat another question I will stop replying on this thread.

     

    If you tell it to generate a size report in the publish settings and look in the file, what does it tell you about what characters are being embedded and where? If you are not able to figure it out from looking at the report, feel free to paste the text of it back here.
