    Selecting Text Issue

    Kurrykid Level 3

      I am having a strange problem when running my app (CS4, FP10).  I have my text on the screen in most places by using new TextField scripting option.  When selecting text while running it in Flash Player, the text gets bigger when selected and it causes the paragraghs to get bigger and goes out of range (outside the designated box).

       

      Another issue is that with one of them I am making the text red for 21 characters like this:

       

      var textUpdate:TextFormat = new TextFormat();
      textUpdate.bold = true;
      textUpdate.color = 0xFF0000;
      t84.setTextFormat(textUpdate, 0, 21);

       

      When I select text that is not red go to a different frame and them come back, all the text is red.  It will stay like this until I close and relaunch.  I can duplicate the process everytime.

       

      Here is an example:

       

      Original text:

       

      text1.jpg

       

      Text Selected:

       

      text2.jpg

       

       

      Results:

       

      text3.jpg

       

       

       

      Does anyone have any suggestions on why this might be happening...I would like to leave the text selectable if possible.

       

      Thank you,
