When I use Flare In effect with text, it pops from what looks like a Bolded text to a thin text (an abrupt cut, so unusable).

Anyone else have this problem, and/or have a solution?

Thanks

I just did a test and it looked great. Check it out.



It could be the font you are using. Did you mess with any of the settings?

It must be the font. Your test looks fine, another font that uses Flare In/Out is fine, so I can only surmise that the font has an issue. I am using Weezer, but have also used the sister font, Century Gothic.

How do you insert video into a thread? I could show you.

Thanks,

[Darren] How do you insert video into a thread?

Above where you type your response there is a bunch of icons. Click on the one that looks like a film camera. If you hover the mouse over it it will say, "Video Upload". Upload the video. Once that is done you will see a section on the upload page that says "Embed". It will have a bunch of code. Copy the code and then past it into your reply.

Wow, that must be frustrating. Sorry it is doing that. I tried the Century Gothic font set to Bold and it worked great on my machine. I don't have the Weezer font. Did you try the Century Gothic font with success?

I recently ran into the "Flare In/Out" issue with the text suddenly going from bold to un-bold. I was able to correct the issue by adding a drop shadow to the text. You will find this setting in the Inspector under the "Text" tab and then the "Style" sub-tab. If you don't want the drop shadow to show up, simply set its opacity to 0. I hope this helps.
