Have you tried setting the font to "Baskerville Bold Italic" with the bold and italics flags set to false?
Yes. I have tried all possible combinations...
Ok, I asked this one specifically because I am using that name with the Text Layout Framework on an iOS app and it works.
I'm using the Textfield class, and TextFormat class. I do not want the extra overhead of using TLF.
Anyway I will try with TLF and get back to you.
Well it seems I'm out of luck. I'm using Flash CC, and there is a bug. I cannot import the class, because some SWC is missing.
And that throws the error:
1017: The definition of base class TLFTextField was not found.
I've already filled a bug report in bugbase...
Wait a minute...
Are you using an Embed font or a Device font?
No, I'm talking about all device fonts on iOS. I am using the text layout framework with device fonts. I am using FlashBuilder though, not Flash CC, not sure what SDK or swc libs you get with Flash CC.
Well the answer is simple. TLF text has been deprecated... and removed from Flash CC.
So I cannot use TLF text. Great.
Do you have any experience with embed fonts in iOS? I'm under the impression that embeding is not very good performance wise.
Well I don't know exactly how you are using fonts or text in your app, but TLF can still be used, it is part of apache-flex with newer builds
But I don't know anything about how/if it integrates the way you need in Flash CC.
I don't see a problem with the embedded fonts I use, but my apps are also Stage3D not Flex components, using TLF to render text lines at the text engine Sprite level, not with Flex components.
Thanks for the info.
I'll go with the embed route then, and cross fingers.
Could you please open a new bug report on this over at bugbase.adobe.com? Once the bug has been added would you mind posting back with the URL so that others affected can add their votes and comments?
Hello, here is the bug report https://bugbase.adobe.com/index.cfm?event=bug&id=3587210
BTW, I have tried embedding the font, and I got a new problem.... I've described my new problem in the flash forum and in StackOverflow.
