I am trying to tag text for export to Flash, but I cannot find the "Flash Text" button or link in the Control panel, even when I have a text object selected. Is there some other condition that needs to be true in order to see the Flash Text button or link? It also does not show up under Window > Type, which I have been told is an alternate way to get to this interface.
I'm wondering if Adobe removed this feature from CS6? When I clicked on the link to the tutorial video [http://www.adobe.com/designcenter-archive/video_workshop/?id=vid0199] the tutorial looks like it is being conducted in CS5.
Yes, the feature has been removed.
I'm trying to right in Baltic letters (letters with macrons and mitigations for example "ā" and "ģ") in chalkduster on a Mac.
The thing is that we in MS Office everything is fine, but when I type in, copy/paste or import to Illustrator CC, then I get these letters converted to whatever font I have used before.
Is there a way to still write with Baltic specific letters in illustrator or there needs to be a work around?
Chalkduster is a font?
Is it not available in Illustrator or why don't you use it?
Does the font appear in Illustrator's menu?
Can you select it?
Is it correctly applied to the text?
Don't expect it to be applied automatically when pasting text into Illustrator.
Yes, it appears in Illustrators font menu.
Yes, I can select it as every else font.
I have tried in various ways to apply the font:
- wrote text manually, selected text, choose font
- paste it from Word and TextEdit
- Placed through File > Place
it's some how with Adobe programms. They doesn't recognize or the Baltic letters and/or can't create the letters with the specific font.
The odd thing is that in MS Word everything works just fine.
Just need to know if it's possible to get the letters at all. If not, need to search for a different font, but it's very important for me to understand, because I'm making design for Flash banners and the banners in Baltics. I will have this problem in future as well if I need to use some specific font.
Is "Missing Glyph protection" enabled in preferences when you paste the text?
What happens if you select the Chalkduster font first, then type?
The same thing.
MS Word everything is OK
Flash - box instead of letter
Illustrator - the last used font that appears appropriate.
What substituted this feature? The latest manual still refers to it and I suppose the options are still viable someplace else,
sometimes manual don't get upgraded at the same speed and removed features still linger there for a while
