    Irregular Text fields

    Tom_F_Parker
      Hi.

      Anyone know if there's a way to create text areas in non rectangular shapes and get the text within to flow round them? Alternatively is there a way to get text to wrap around a graphical element?

      Kinda looking for DTP text control within Flash - I don't believe it's possible, but surprise me!

          you have limited control.

          1. you can create only rectangular textfields.
          2. flash can handle graphics in textfields and will wrap text around graphics
          3. you can coerce flash to wrap text around graphics the way you want, but control is very limited.
          4. you can work around some of these limitations but the work-arounds are not easy.
