    Dynamic Text, symbol characters disappearing

    mdbtgm
      Hi.

      I'm trying to animate text in 3d, and to do this i've made a MovieClip with a single character, created one of these for each character in my string, and animated the x, y, xscale, and yscale values to produce the effect of 3d. This works well.

      My only problem is with my algorithm for setting the initial position of the text. I've attached my actionscript...

      This works perfectly except for "symbol characters" like ?, !, &, @, etc.

      textWidth appears to be 0 for these characters and just creates an empty MovieClip.

      Any help is appreciated.
