    Font duplicates on movieclip duplication

    Mark Knol

      Hi,

       

      I don't know if this is the right place to send a bugreport. I have installed Flash CS6 12.0.2.529, but this also happend with my previous CS6. I took some time to find out when it is exactly happening.

       

      Situation:

      I am working in a shared_assets fla file. Here I collect all symbols, assets and fonts that should be exported for runtime sharing. In that file I have a symbol (MovieClip) with some textfields in it. The textfields uses multiple fonts that are marked as 'export for runtime sharing'. In the textfield I use the right fontname (with the asterix). A normal situation I guess.

       

      Problem:

      I want the movieclip to be duplicated. When I duplicate it, the font gets duplicated too. It's named 'HelveticaNeue copy' and is marked as imported for runtime sharing. A side-problem of this is when I just remove the duplicated font, the textfield points to a non-existing font (so when i reopen the file i need to select a font-mapping).

       

      Workaround:

      When all textfields are in separate movieclips, the problem does not occur, however its more work in code to reach the textfields.

       

      Hope this can be solved quickly.

       

      EDIT: I just noticed I should report a bug over here, so thats what i did.
