    defineFont is only used with static text defined in the defineText tag - and that includes the inter-glyph advances.

    BTW - defineText can also reference a defineFont2 (in Flash 4 (5?) and later)...

    Uhu - doesn't work.
    The only way I've found is to write code to delegate the mouse events down to the contained MC's.

    I've never managed to make 16 bit work in JavaSWF either.

    However, the ZLIB compression used in lossless bitmaps in SWF probably makes 32 bit images just as small as the equivalent 16 bit version.

    This code will draw an ellipse. Just set a = b for a circle:



    var a = 200;
    var b = 100;

    var j = a * 0.70711;
    var n = b * 0.70711;
    var i = j -(b-n)*a/b;

    Yes - stop() just stops the timeline from playing on to the next frame (or looping) - it won't affect any other actions in the current frame (even those after it).

    Yes - just make sure that the entire font for the Dynamic Text is embedded.

    You can also embed just a subset if you know that you do not need all the characters in the font.
