    fonts displaying incorrectly

    azbuck
      I've purchased some pixel fonts from "fonts for flash" but after installing them, they don't display properly in fireworks. They are missing the top half of the font. They seem to work fine in Flash but I need to create the flat file in fireworks so the customer can see what the webpage will look like w/ the actual font used. Anyone else run across this problem? Seems to only be font's purchased from www.fontsforflash.com.
      here's a screen shot of what I'm talking about: http://forstco.com/help/
      Any help is appreciated!

          Convert the text to paths.

              Yes. The problem is usually caused by the font itself. Some of them are
              created with the descenders/ascenders outside the character box for the
              font. It's possible to correct the problem in Fontographer or another
              font editor.
