I am trying to wrap my head around the embedFonts property. It looks to be interfering with my formatting of dynamic text.
I have included some sample text. What happens on my end (which I hope is duplicated on your end) is that the text shows up with the word "quick" italicized. Unfortunately, the text field is not anti-aliased. To fix this, I remove the comment and set embedFonts to true (per the Flash CS3 help file). This completely kills the text, and now it doesn't show at all.
I haven't had problems with embedFont in my current project, but this example kind of terrifies me because it's not all that different from my main project.
How am I using embedFonts incorrectly, and how can I use it more effectively?
test_txt.text = "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.";
var italicFormat:TextFormat = new TextFormat();
italicFormat.italic = true;
italicFormat.font = "Arial";
test_txt.setTextFormat(italicFormat, 4, 8);
//test_txt.embedFonts = true;
test_txt.antiAliasType = AntiAliasType.ADVANCED;
