I am making a Flash movie where a user can change the font of a text field(AS3), and due to the embedded fonts functionality even fonts that ar not on the users computer can be selected.
The problem is that I can embed only one font per text field. This should be no issue because they are embedded in the example text and are included in the library. But this does not work!
It does not matter whether I use the font name or the name of the font in the library with trailing '*', it simply shows _serif!
This problem drives me cray because it disables the main feature of the application.
The problem is illustrated in the zip attachment, can anyone provide me with a solution?
you can use multiple fonts in one textfield if you use actionscript to assign the font. you can even use multiple fonts simultaneously in one textfield using css.
What dow you mena by using Actionscript?
Isn't that what I'm doing?
Or do you mean exporting the font in the library to AS and assigning
that font to the text field?(same function?)
I'm not exactly what you'd call a Flash expert you know
you can embed a font in the ide by clicking on a textfield and using the properties panel. and you can embed a font by using actionscript which involves, among other things, adding the font to the library.
