Font Size of Dynamic Text Box is not consistant
Posted on 2004-11-12
In short, I have two Flash applications. One where a user can add and manipulate text. A user can change the font size. That font size is recorded is recorded in an XML document.
Later a seperate Flash file reads the XML to duplicate what the user created.
My problem is that the font size is not remaining uniform. The user might choose a 12 pt font. In the other flash file a 12 point font is much bigger. In both cases the Dynamic Text box is manipulated using:
I know the code is effectively formating the text box. In the second application I have to make set the font to 7 pt to closer resemble the first 12pt font.
This application demands that the text look exactly the same from one aplication to the next, but the font size simply isn't constant.
Any ideas would be GREATLY appreciated. I'm just hoping this isn't another Flash anomoly here.
