    Why does a dynamic text box have a word limit?

    NO.FX

      Hi,

       

      I am having a few problems atm with flash and wondering whether I am asking too much from flash or whether I am being stupid. Basically what I am trying to achieve is a box that is 300px by 300 px, within that box I have some text that I would like to place inside. As I would like to be able to regularly update this box (its a news feed) I have linked it too a .txt file. The problems that I have come across is that flash seems to have a limit on the amount of text it will allow in a dynamic text field. As even tho I have more text in my txt document, its is not displayed. This is how I have come to the presumtion that flash must be limiting the amount of text.

       

      Am I correct or is there something I am missing?

       

      I have uploaded the file to my web space for ppl to have a gander.

      Thanks
