Can anyone at least confirm this is an unavoidable limitation with flex? Thanks.
I have same problem. But as I can see this is not only flex problem. If I create pure AS project and try to display text field with font size >127 I do not see any diffirence.
Did any of you two got a confirmation that this is a limitation in Flex?
I seem to be having the same problem, and since our interface design requires a font size of 152 pixels, this looks like a serious problem for us.
Sorry, in the last post 'pixels' should obviously be replaced by 'points'
There seems to be a workaround: use the scaleX and scaleY attributes of the Label component.
So in order to have fontSize="180", you could do:
<mx:Label fontSize="100" scaleX="1.8" scaleY="1.8" text="Hello" />
Yep, that is what I ended up doing also. It seems like a Flex problem. In the Flex Builder interface design mode I can't create larger fonts either, but in Flash 8 there doesn't seem to be any limit at all.
