    Difference between viewing dynamic text and static text with same format

    sotoodeh
      I create a static text which contains a text, and then I create a dynamic text and assign a value to it.
      I set the same format to both of them but when I publish it; their views are different in the swf file.
      Why?
      Is it usual?

          It is not unusual, as while in the ide more advanced typographical features can be applied to static text (which is mor or less converted to a graphic before publishing), in the player text rendered at runtime cannot use al of those featurers (with Player Version 8 the textrendering has greatly improved, but uses other methods than the IDE).

          You can also set different anti-alias methods for dynamic textfields (Flash 8), so even two dynamic texfields with the same text and textformat can look different.
