I am trying to figure out the font thing in flash, and i'm sure its a fairly simple concept to understand but i would like some help.

I have a particular font i want to use- futura, and it's all pixelated in flash and when I try to preview, it says it cant find the outline font to convert to outlines. I know the font is open.

I was reading in some ot the other posts that flash may conflict with the font program, so should i place this font in my system folder.

also what are pixel fonts.

if I do use futura, how do i ensure that my viewer can see futura and not some random font- convert to outlines? (wont that create a larger file and/or make it hard for me to edit type later.

this is probably a newbie question, but what better place to ask a font question than in a font forum
