exporting fonts for all textboxes

I have a problem.

I have created a typing text effect in flash cs4.

I have done it the long winded way because of a few things I wanted to be able to do and this is the only way i knew how as im pretty new to all this.

So I have a text box on each keyframe and add the next letter to the key frame etc.

It all looks fine.

Howvere when i view the flash on the net rather than locally and on the server, i can see that the font looks rubbish as I havent embedded it into the textboxes. There are a lot of frames so i really dont want to have to go back thru it each frame and do it manually.

Is there a way to just embed the font into the file so it is available to be used?

    Accepted Solution

    If you are using a dynamic textFields, they do need to manually updated to embed the proper fonts...  There is no way to combine manual embedding and the programmatic embedding in that case...

    Did you add your specific font in to your library?

    In library, top right you could select new font from the drop down and assign font and instance name to it
