Are you using D11, and is the text member using a font containing the
(appropriate) Unicode characters? I'd recommend trying Arial Unicode
(you might have to purchase a copy if you don't own a recent copy of M$
Office) for a start, and move on from there if required.
yes I'm using D11. Thanks for the tip, Arial Unicode worked just fine. I guess it's because Director has it's own text rendering engine that works to it's own set of rules and it's pretty much trial and error to find out what those rules are. It's a simple solution but potentially very restrictive but at least it works so I'm happy about that.
Ahhh dang .. scratch that happiness .. D11 doesn't support right to left text :(
What's infuriating about this is that thumbnail preview renders RTL text correctly! But as soon as you place the member on the stage the text renders arse about - presumably the cast window is using standard win text controls.
Even the TextInput #flashComponent gets it wrong, though the text is displayed correctly in the Property Inspector.
Can anyone recommend ways to use RTL text in D11?
Do you need "static" text, or input?
