    Keeping Fireworks stroke in Flash

    GoojcC
      Hi there,

      I have stroke added to a text in Fireworks. It is fine, but I cannot import it properly in Flash, as the stroke disapear. I've tried to save under .ai, .swf, but it did not work. I can not save as jpg as the typo is made for a banner wich can't exceed 30 ko.

      Does anybody know how to solve it ?

      Thanks.

          Why not create the text and outline in Flash?

            Text in Flash cannot have strokes, which is why it doesn't come through. However if you convert your text in Fireworks to paths (Text > Convert to Paths) the strokes will come through. Keep in mind that FW strokes and Flash strokes are different, so you might have to tweak the stroke in Flash, but it will come through.
