i'm not sure which you think is weird but, the bottom symbol is not anti-aliased and the top one is. you can control the anti-aliasing for dynamic textfields if that's the one you want to change.
Hi there, yes I know that.
that's not the problem. The question is why on earth is the bottom symbol different than the top even know they are the same.
The bottom symbol is clearly not Arial even though it is specified as Arial. The line at the bottom looks like a completly different font. If you look at the swf in the zip on windows xp and again on windows 7 it appears differently!
embed your arial font and re-compare.
Hi again, As I said in my first post:
"I can't embed fonts because the application I'm putting this into won't allow me to."
My question is why is flash doing this and is there a way around it without embeding? In my opnion this is clearly a bug!
I dont see why a dynamic text box would be displaying a different font when clearly I have this font with the correct symbol in it. this makes no sense
if you don't embed your font, you'll be using a device font and every character would be expected to be different.
Yes I know they will appear different. i.e no anti-alaised but it should still be the arial representation of the symbol. The problem is that even though I tell it to be arial, I have arial and arial has this symbol in it it clearly isn't arial!
Any other symbol I have tried and all normal text appears correctly, but this one selects a different font!
