    Blurry pixel fonts in Flash 8

    complexity Level 1
      Hey all

      Could someone please show me how to create unblurry pixel fonts in Flash 8.

      For whatever reason my Arial size 11 always comes out blurred, I have ensured that Bitmap Text (no anti-alias) is selected.

      Files here:
      users.ncable.net.au/~timfrancis/blurryfonts.fla
      users.ncable.net.au/~timfrancis/blurryfonts.swf

      Never used to have this problem in flash prior to 8.

      Any help would be great.

          looks to me as though it comes out blurred with Bitmap Text (no anti-alias) when you have a letter spacing parameter that isn't an integer. Interesting. if you have a letter spacing that ends in .5 for example, every second character is blurred.

          It must be to do with characters being approximated when they begin off an even pixel.
