are you using cs5? if yes, are you using tlf textfields?
and what do you mean by, "when i got to preview the flash. the flash text is in a seperate text document."?
yes i'm using cs5. i'm new to this so if i don't know what you are talking about, please bare with me. the way my flash is set up, i have a .fla file that has like place holders for the text. the text is actually entered into a different file that is then linked to the .fla. i did not create the files. we purchased a website background from a web designer. it comes with instructions and such. it says you can go into the .fla and edit the text color and font.
i have 5 lines of text in my flash. i want only one line to be a different font while the others stay the same. and all 5 stay the same color. but when i change the font of the one line i want different, it will not play when i go to file > publish preview > flash. when you go there it brings up a box that previews you flash. well when i preview it, the line i changed to a different font type is not there.
and i'm sorry but i don't know what tlf textfields are.
when you open that fla is there a message about missing fonts and a dialogue box that lets you choose substitute fonts for the missing ones?
Check the embeded fonts.
