I'm working on a Flash project, in which I embed several
characters from the fonts "Arial" and "Monotype Corsiva". Arial is
also embedded in Bold. I do this by clicking the "Embed..." button
in the IDE and typing out the characters I wish to embed. I use
static, dynamic, input text fields with from 8pts to 14pts, in case
it matters. This works fine, and I can access the embedded fonts
throughout the movie.
Here's the problem: When I generate a size report, I see
I understand why "Arial Bold" is there. However, I do not see
why "Arial 9 pts" in there.
The reason why it puzzles me is that I use many different
font sizes for the Monotype Corsiva font, and it only shows up
once. Furthermore, there's a dynamic textfield which uses Arial at
10 pts (and most dynamic fields are 8 pts), yet that doesn't get
embedded. What makes Flash embed the Arial font again for the 9 pts
size, and how can I prevent it from doing that?
Stuff I tried:
- I used a JSFL file which changes the font size of every
field to 8 pts. This results in Arial and "Arial 8pts" getting
- I used a JSFL file and changed the font size of every field
to a different, random size. This results in all those different
sizes getting embedded.
- I added a text field which uses Arial at 10 pts, and
nothing additional gets embedded.
- I added a text field which uses Monotype Corsiva at 10pts,
and one at 16pts, and nothing additional gets embedded.
