Problem with Dynamic text disappearing
on Sep 21, 2010 at 10:24:27 am

Hi! Thought I should post a problem I have had myself: Dynamic Text (i.e. textfields where the content is made with scripting) disappears from Stage!

This is what I've done and testet several times now:
Made a Textfield (Classic Text) and made it Dynamic. I use the MS Trebuchet font for this project, and I embed the font as described in the docs (earlier this was recommended, but not required like now). It appears in the Library.
... (further description removed after I found the solution)

Alright - I FOUND IT:
You can't use Dynamic Text with anti aliasing applied. One needs to use 'Bitmap text [no anti-alias]' for custom fonts, or 'Use Device fonts' for a slicker appearance, but perhaps not exactly as you want with regard to size, Bold etc..
I let this post stand, in case anyone else looks this up.

Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted.
