your first problem, a lack of kerning may (or it may not) be remedied by ticking the auto kern box in your textfield's properties panel. try it with font embedding disabled.
your 2nd problem, the inability to use bold or italic or bold and italic font when you only embed a regular font has various remedies but they all must involve embedding bold or italic or bold and italic font.
I cannot solve kerning by turning the auto-kern on because that option is disabled when you choose dynamic text.
I am also still getting unpredictable results with embedded fonts.
auto-kerning is not disabled in dynamic textfields. are you using device fonts? are your publish settings set for flash 8? are you using anti-aliasing?
auto-kerning is not disabled in dynamic textfields.
Perhaps on your machine, but on mine the check box is greyed out and lifeless.
are you using device fonts?
The device fonts are definitely the root of the spacing problem. For example, when I use static text boxes and set them to use device fonts, font: arial 11 pt; I get the spacing problem. So no, I have been embedding fonts and using the anti-alias for readability option.
are your publish settings set for flash 8?
Yes. I have also tried using 7. Same problem with both.
Thanks for taking the time to reply.
if you're not using device fonts, post a link to your fla that displays the problem.
