Hy everybody! This is my first post here, and my first visit. And I see you're doing great job!
Please help me in this problem: How can I rotate a dynamic text box?
I have to find a way to rotate it, re-scale it, and even skew it, if possible. The text have to be dynamic, so the user modifies his own words.
...is that possible? Any advice would be helpfull.

Thanx alot.

Welcome to OZZU polak. It is indeed possible to modify the contents of this textbox... however you must embed the font outline. To do this right click on your textbox, open the properties panel, and in there will be a "Character..." button. Click that in there choose how you want to embed the font outline and everything should be fine.

Thanks, lostinbeta! It works! One more question: is there a posibility to embed the font outlines dynamically? This is for a web aplication, the user should choose what font he wants to use. And thinking on the filesize, I do not want to embed the outlines for all the fonts in the list. Only when needed.

Thanks again.

No, i'm afraid not.

Well... you could, but it would be quite inefficient because you would have to import all of those fonts into your movies library (theres a drop down in the upper right corner of the library panel where you can import fonts), then you would have to right click on all of these fonts and set their linkage properties to export for actionscript (which would then have to make them export to first frame where they would load before anything else in your movie, including any prepared preloader), then from there you would be able to do it using the the TextFormat() object and the embedFonts property for the textbox.

This will of course massively increase your file size and load time.

Sorry :(
