Does anyone know if it is possible in Flex css to choose
which specific font size is used to generate the font sizes used by
Flex? Specifically I am using HousePaint
http://www.identifont.com/show?H2N which has slightly different outlines at lower font sizes
that when blown back up to full size look terrible.
It looks like I can use Flash to do this properly (by
creating a dynamic text field and embedding), but was wondering if
there was a way to do this on Flex CSS with the @font-face tag,
unicode-range: 'U+0021-U+00FF, U+2022'; /* whole range of
uppercase, lowercase, symbols and punctuation, plus bullet. */
I have just had a number of issues in the past with including
SWF embedded fonts not showing up properly so doing that is sort of
a last resort, and it seems like something that would happen pretty
frequently. I guess another option would be to not-so-simply load
the font into a font editor and remove the lower resolution
options, but that seems like the nuclear option to me...
So I figured out I needed to open up the font in Fontlab/etc.
and remove all TT hinting to fix the outlines issue at lower point
sizes. But I am still unable to get my font to show up when
embedded in Flex, whether as TTF, OTF or SWF. I'm guessing there is
some issue with how the font is named or fontWeight/Style, etc.
I've changed these in Fontlab but to no avail. Anyone with any
ideas or help would be appreciated.
