    Horizontal Spacing on dynamic texts?

    Level 7
      Hi friends!

      I have created some dynamic texts and i am triying to change the horizontral
      space between

      letters but it doesnt seem to work, how do i do it??? Do i have to know
      something special?
      Can i do it using code (AS 2.0)???

      The funny thing is that the vertical spacing works perfect.

      Cheers

      Jaime

          use the letterSpacing property of the textformat object. what did you use for vertical spacing?

              in the authoring environment you can use the letter spacing slider in the properties panel of your textfield. what properties did you use?

                well it is a dynamic text

                My gui is not in english so i try to translate it and do it in order...

                Is a custom font but i add the letters as latin, numeric and that stuff...

                A\V (could be any number. id doesnt work...)

                Normal

                Smooth (i tried all the options of smoothness)

                Multiline,
                No selectable
                No html
                No squarebox outside
                Not a variable... (when i change the text i change it using
                (variablename_txt.text=x)
                Not autoadjust
                Not a link


                No filters and no parameters.
