I have an input text field with the same var name as a dynamic text field.

When I type into the input field it populates the dynamic field. Brilliant!!

However if I rotate the dynamic field to an angle. The populating of the field no longer works!!??!!?

Surely something as simple as this all the all singing all dancing MX 2004 should be possible.

Any one know a way round it?


cheers,

Tim

You have to embed the font outline to be able to manipulate dynamic text in Flash.

Open the properties panel for the textbox and click the 'Character...' button, in there choose the characters you wish to embed.

The same thing applies if you mask a dynamic text field too. Just FYI

Good point graphixboy!

And I would like to add that if you are masking dynamic text, and you want to html enable your textfield to support bold and italics, you are going to have to create 2 extra textboxes off the side of the stage... 1 with the same font in italics, and another with the same font in bold. You will have to embed the font outlines for these too.

This is an annoying bug in Flash that when I first encountered I drove myself absolutely crazy for about 2 weeks before I figured out the solution.
