    Font displayed problem


      I created a simple website http://gonzague.nuxit.net/norden/norden.swf with Flex but the display of the text on page "AVOCATS" shows both vertical and horizontal scrollbar.
      This occurs on some friends PCs, not on mine ! I guess it is because not always the same font is used and it creates different paragraph widths.

      I specified Arial (non embedded) font in a CSS under category Application :

      Application {
      fontFamily: Arial;
      backgroundColor: #FFFFFF;
      horizontalAlign: left;
      paddingLeft: 50;
      paddingTop: 20;
      paddingBottom: 20;
      paddingRight: 50;

      I thought Flex applied different font when the one specified is not found on the client side : I guess Arial is on most of the machines now !! Is it because Flash does not find the location of the font files ?

      Or something else ?

      Thanks for helping ;)

          It could be there are differences in Flash player version as to how the fonts are rendered, which could cause differences. In general you can avoid those kinds of issues with a different design, or by using things like 'horizontalScroolPolicy="off"' or clipContent=false;

          Also, looking at that page, the app sizes with the browser size, so if your friend has thicker browser borders for instance, he might get scroll bars where you wouldn't.

            Thanks all that makes sense.

            I modified my containers and text width to leave space for the vertical scrollbars which makes the horizontal one disappear ...
