I recently updated to Director 11 and I have tested various
projects in it which have been made with Director MX 2004. They all
have serious issues with font rendering, because it's so different
than in Director MX 2004. I don't mind that the font are
antialiased differently, but all text alignments are messed up.
Spacings are different than earlier and text takes less space
vertically, which causes problems with text and picture alignments.
In various projects I have text pages with bullet lists, and these
lists are messed up too, line breaks are different and spaces made
with tab are not located as they used to. Text rendering engine
seems to have problems when between two text chapters is a empty
extra line which has smaller spacing than the text before and after
- when I doubleclick the text to edit it, the spacings are messed
up and look totally different in edit mode than what they look like
in "normal" mode.
Is this normal behavior in Director 11, or am I doing
something wrong? Is there some setting that I need to
I too have had the same problem. I have a project that uses
text over a button. This text in MX 2004 looked fine b/c of the
"All" option under the Anti-Alias property. Now, the
standard-looking "Arial" font is very choppy and hard to read when
