    Ascenders/descenders being chopped/clipped off of some fonts

    diazruy Level 1

      I am having behavior similar to what's described in this bug report http://bugs.adobe.com/jira/browse/SDK-14047 but I am not sure if this has actually been fixed now. I am loading at runtime a SWF file with an embedded Bleeding Cowboys TTF font which happens to have very large ascent and descent. On applying this font to a  Label element, the top and bottom gets clipped. I have tried manually changing the height of the label as well as adding flashType (which is now deprecated so I tried with advancedAntiAliasing=false) to the embedded asset to no success.

      The font size seems to have no impact either.

       

      Any ideas?
