    Text not updating in Custom Symbols

    TonyRedhead Level 2
      After creating a Custom Symbol and a Symbol Script to the symbol any changes to the value in the textChars field of the Symbol Properties, after the symbol is added to the layout, are not being implemented. All of the other text properties such as fontsize, font etc work only textChars are not working.

      A Custom Symbol and script copied from CS3 works, you are requested to update the legacy text, but changes to the textChars field works. I seem to recall reading that CS3 generated text still uses the old render engine, even though you update it, whereas the CS4 generated text uses the new one.

      Seems like time to reinstall CS3 Fireworks, generate Custom Symbols there and copy across.
