it appears that will only run the same settings I can set through the dialog box options. Is there a way to change what options are available? As I said in my post, I want to be able to change the text anti-alias setting. Is there a way to do that?
Do you have settings for anti-alias in UI?
Anti-alias is available for JPEG export.
Is it possible to create a script that can set and export a swf file to my specifications?
It seems there isn't. A script cannot add basic functionality, only access it. In this case, you can't change the setting because there is no 'antialias text' setting in the SWF export settings.
However, all is not lost. Google turned up this helpful page; it might be possible to edit your SWF after exporting and then re-save it.
I appreciate the link, but that doesn't answer my question. I'm aware of what text anti-aliasing is and how it works. The problem is that indesign saves text to a swf file in an uneditable/unmodifiable way so I'm looking to change the way it encodes it. Essentially I imagine that if it can save text with the "animation" aa setting, it's probably likely it can save with the "readability" aa option, but there is not choice for that setting anywhere.
