What particular fonts does not work for you, what OS are you running and are you targetting Flex 3 or Flex 4 components?
Arial Baltic, Arial CE, Arial CYR, Arial TUR doesnt work.
Arial, Arial Black and Arial Narrow works fine. Its the same for some other fonts. Of course I havent checked all of them.
I use a spark textarea for testing in an air flex 4 sdk app., windows 7.
If you visit the page http://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/font/fontlist.htm, do you have your fonts listed here and does the inputted text looks all right when rendered with Arial Baltic or Arial CYR fonts??
Yes, I know, that this page uses Flex 3 older components, those the text rendering results might look different compared with Flex 4 Spark TextArea component, nevertheless worth a visit.
Hi Jabby, thanks for the input.
Yes the fonts are ok on that page.
I also tried using a mx textarea instead of a spark one in my testapp and the 'missing' fonts turned up and worked fine.
Strange thing, mx:textarea works better than s:textarea ??
Know any solution to this problem ??
If some of the fonts are not cff fonts they won't work in Spark and will
work in mx components.
Better use mx components then...
