I'm really new with Flash. This is my first project and the company I'm working with hired a person in Florida to get the initial code work done, so that I/we could then dissect it and try to learn how things are done. The problem I'm having is the pop up text is aliased. When we reviewed the output with the client they mentioned the text look bad. I didn't notice it at first because I was looking at the SWF file on a Mac. Then I looked at it on my PC, which is where I have Flash installed, and it looked totally different...jagged.
I looked up some scripts for anti-aliasing and entered it into the actionscript and that did nothing. I also made sure that anti-alias for readability was checked and that embed fonts was enabled and it still looked bad.
if you roll the mouse over all the names you can see what I am referring to. But if you roll over the product names in the upper left, that text looks fine, not bold.
I am using Flash CS3 on Vista. The font in the pop up is Arial Narrow. I've previewed the file on both OS X (10.4 and 10.5) and Windows (XP and Vista) and the text looks fine in OS X and looks jagged in Windows.
What am I doing wrong? Is it because bold is enabled on a font that isn't bold? Any help or insight is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for any assistance!
