    How can I make part of the text bold

    TheBrody Level 1

           TheProfileRoot.EngineeringText.text = "Level " + PlayerEngineerLevel + " Engineer - level up in " + PlayerReqEngineer + " xp";

      I want the "Level " + PlayerEngineerLevel to be bold. And the rest to be plain. How can I do this?

          I can't troubleshoot AS2.0 right now as my computer is undergoing a recovery, but from your post I can see a solution.  Assign variables to several text fields, some of them with the attributes of having bold text assigned in the Flash authoring platform, and some of them having default values.  I am sure there are attributes such as boldness that can be set using AS2.0 but again I can't troubleshoot and my reference material is not with me right now.  (Most of my reference material is for AS3.0 which I am in the process of learning)

            You can try using html bold tags and assign it to the htmlTExt property of the textfield instread of the text property (with html enabled for the textfield)
