This should be easy

I have various text fields inside a movie clip called main_windows.

I'm just trying to switch the text fields to dynamic text to sharpen the fonts. As soon as I try this and publish it, the text disappears. If I do the same on text fields that aren't inside a movie clip works perfectly.

I tried setting a variable to define the text, but that doesn't work either. All I want is crispy fonts (I'm try to not embed fonts....just using Verdana)

Ideas?
points for rapid answer :)

If you have a movieclip which has a mask applied to it, then you must embed the font, otherwise the font will not render.

This sounds like you have included a mask on the MC main_windows. Is this the case?

If so, there is little you can do. One solution is to use fonts created specifically for flash, although this will not allow for the use of Verdana.  These fonts always have 90 degreee corners on them, and must be set exactly at certain positions within the stage area. i think they are available at www.fontsforflash.com. There is more info on their use there.

ack...yes I am using a mask.

I have a couple pixel fonts already. Guessing this will have to be the route.

Thanx for the mask tip.
