I need to be able to display some of my fonts in 8pt in my
Flex application. Unfortunately Flex anti-aliases text, even if it
is at 8pt, making an 8 pt font unreadable. I did find a Pixel font,
and it works really well for words that are longer than 4
characters. Any word that is 4 characters or shorter is still
blurry. Does anyone know a way to fix this? I really need to be
able to display these shorter words in a crips 8 pt font.
It looks like you'll need to use Flash to create a textbox
symbol and then import it as a class with Actionscript 3.0.
In flash, if you make a textbox on the stage, if you look at
the properties you'll see a dropdown box that gives you
anti-aliasing choices. You may want to choose: anti-alias for
readablilty. Set up linkage, export, yada yada.
But if you import this Flash textbox into Flex, you might be
able to get that antialias setting.
