    Type Shifting/Smearing as Animation progresses in the Timeline when .fla file is reopened.


      A simple animation has been created using words as symbols. Each word has it's own movement, coming in from left to right, top to bottom, etc. There are no issues when the file is first created, but on occasion, when the .fla is then reopened (on the computer it was created in, or on a different computer) some of the type, seems to be out of whack. Literally as if, water had dripped on ink on a piece of paper, the type is smeared and smudged, as the timeline progresses. The animated treatment is still kept in place, just the type itself is affected. The smearing/smudging is not consistent every time, it varies from each time the file is reopened. But – sometimes, the file is completely normal.


      Thinking it may be a RAM issue, closed all other programs, and gave Flash some more space, but that doesn't seem to completely fix the issue. Here attached is a screenshot of what the .fla looks like. I am working in CS5 on a Mac OS X 10.6.7. I am also using FontExplorer X Pro for font management. The issue doesn't seem to be with this particular font alone– other files with different fonts seem to have the same problem.


      Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!
