embedding font problem
on Mar 22, 2008 at 8:15:27 pm

Hello everyone.

Another green question I'm afraid.

I have a dynamic text box. I have set it up for the text to change depending on which button has been pressed.
Buttons on the same timeline, have been action scripted as follows:

on (release) {
text_box.text="line of text"

My font was set up as Gill Sans light in the dynamic text box. If I set the embed options on this text box, then none of my text appears in response to the button release. If I don't embed, it seems OK, but I'll need to for when the page goes online.

Thanks for your help.

I am having a very similar issue, and was wondering if you found a resolution. I have a dynamic text box that loads an external txt file and that file has some html code. When the use html button is pressed on the dynamic text box it embeds the font perfectly. But when it is pressed it loads it blank. The text is there however, its just like white I can select it but its not visible, due to the white background I think. And the scroll bar doesn't work making it seem like not all the text is there. I even tested it with a text file with no html, but the html button still pressed and the same thing happened.

I am in flash 8 to btw.

Let me know if you reached a resolution, as it may aid me.
