Hi all. I am new to these forums.
Is there a character or word limit for the dynamic text box in Flash CS5? I am using Classic Text and am copying a large amount of text (about 4,700 words or 31,740 characers with spaces) into the text field, but the text is cut off at a certain point (at about 2,600 words or 17,795 characters). I'm using a UIScrollbar on the text box.
The full text can be copied into Flash CS3 but not CS5 so what is going on? Did Adobe create a word limit in the new version? is there some other way around this, other than splitting up the text into 2 text fields? I should note that I cannot use TLF text for compatibility issues in case that is a possible solution.
Any help would be appreciated.
there (and always have been) limits to everything in flash including the number of characters in a textfield. but why are you using a dynamic textfield for static text?
I am relatively new to Flash. I thought you couldn't use static text with a UIScrollbar. Is that not the case?
you can't scroll a static textfield, at all.
you would create a movieclip that contains your static textfield and scroll the movieclip (using your own scrollbar). you would probably want to mask the movieclip.
