why is it that using text in flash (i'm using flash 8) seems to make the program run sluggish? its always bothered me and i've never understood why its like that. am i missing something?

Are you talking about the SWFs running slow, or the Flash authoring environment running sluggish? I can't say that I've ever experienced a flash file running slowly becuase of text (and I've put some absurd amounts of text in flash at times), but I have experienced working on the projects grinding to a crawl from having a text box with a few hundred lines of text in it.

nope, not the swf running slow, just flash itself. and it doesn't seem to matter if its a lot of text or just a few lines, but for some reason it makes flash very unresponsive, even doing basic things like selecting layers and scrubbing in the timeline.
