Flash CS4 - Custom character sets don't show

In Flash CS3 I was able to edit UnicodeTable.xml as described here: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/AS2LCR/Flash_10.0/help.html?content=00000279.html", and then choose the custom character set in Flash.

However, this will not work in Flash CS4.

I have made sure that the correct file was edited, restarted Flash multiple times, but the custom entries just won't show in the character embedding dialog.

Are you sure that Unicode font is used at the place where you expect to see custom character?

Thanks for your comment.

I just did a quick search to show you a screenshot of where I expect the character set to show up, but in doing so I came across a webpage referncing a different location of the UnicodeTable.xml.

The adobe help page (http://help.adobe.com/en_US/AS2LCR/Flash_10.0/help.html?content=00000279.html) instructs you to change the file in the C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Flash CS3\<language>\First Run\FontEmbedding\ directory, which did not cause any changes.

The other path is <user>\AppData\Local\Adobe\Flash CS4<language>\Configuration\FontEmbedding under Vista, and after changing the file here, it worked.
