Can you control how Flash loads dynamic text?
Posted on 2004-04-11
We are loading in dynamic text created in Notepad. We are finding that when Flash loads it into our tutorial, it changes the spacing, somewhat, of the text. For example, the Notepad file will show a sentence with all the proper spacing between words (one space between each word) but when it shows in our Flash piece, Flash will add an extra space before one of the words, thus making it look like we typed an extra space when in fact, we did not. It doesn't happen on every line of text but does on at least one or two. The extra space is noticeable. Yes, we can go in and alter the Notepad file by adding an extra space before a word so that Flash makes it look okay,however, that can present problems for modifying text later. We'd rather not have to do this. Can anyone explain why Flash does this and if there is something we can do about it?
