In Flash CS4, I encountered a strange bug where text would get cut off if there were any filters applied to the text box. I was so excited for CS5, because I had heard that bug was fixed. Now I see that it is not.
I'm using Classic Text in an Actionscript 2.0 file. Here's a screenshot to demonstrate what I mean. The top line is text with no filters applied. The middle line is text inside a movie clip, with filters applied to the movie clip. The bottom line is text with a drop shadow filter applied directly to the text box. Why does it cut off the end of the text???
