I got some text pulled out of a file and displayed in a dynamic text field which works fine. Is there a way to create a custom scroller for dynamic text so not the yuck default scroller I just want simple two buttons up down or a bar like on the browser that u drag up and down. The problem is once I create this using action script I discovered that dynamic text can't be masked out so my whole scroller is useless in this case. Is there a way to go around this ? People suggested embeding the fonts but u can't embed the dynamic font it wont show the text if u embed. U can't mask it ... how can I then make it scroll and look nice ???

You can mask dynamic text if you embed the font outline. Right click on the textbox, open the properties panel and in there (in MX at least) there is a button called "Character..." in there you can embed the font oulines for your font characters and the textbox will now be maskable.
