I have a question for all you flash gurus... I am putting together my first flash website, and on the main page I have a simple static text box, with about a paragraph worth of text.

This is my problem, in the text box properties, I have the text allignment set to "Full Justify" and it looks perfect on screen. However, when I test or publish the movie, the text is not justified! :?: Any ideas how I can fix this?

Thanks in advance!

i'm not sure what the problem is, but why don't you just right click on the text box and select convert to symbol...
convert it to a graphic (you'll still be able to edit the text within the symbol) and see if that fixes it upon publication...
that's weird tho... heights....

roarmeow,

I tried converting it to a movie clip, but it still isn't showing the correct justification in the test/published movie... Any other ideas?

Thanks again...

i don't know what to say... flash justifies just fine normally... there's no trick to it... you said it's a static text box and you've got it justified... i guess make sure that under the Text>Align menu, Justify is checked off... but I'm sure you've already done that...
anyone else got any tips...?

Well, I didn't figure out what the problem was, but I did find a solution. I deleted the text box, and recreated it, and just retyped all of the text into it. I tested the movie and *presto* it worked... :roll: I guess there was something weird with that original box... oh well... thanks for your help!

What you're describing happens with dynamic text areas. In the development environment, a dynamic text area justifies. When rendered in the player, however, it doesn't. My guess would be that you simply changed the type of text object, inadvertently.
