Thread: Device Fonts and Masking???

    Is there a way to use device fonts ( like _sans) with masking? Because I have a scroll that uses masking and the device fonts do not show up! this sucks because i like device fonts since they add less file size and they do not have anti alias which makes text hard to read sometimes.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    there is no option to mask a nonincluded font.
    BUT... as a small hint, u can size the box to fit your design, and scroll with this:

    var mytext = "this is the text+variable assigned to your textbox..."
    mytext.scroll = mytext.scroll + 1; // or -1;
    (also take a look at .maxscroll)

    this works fine if you are going to make something like a draggable box or something. For example -> http://www.orangeflash.de and the point "Gästebuch" (guestbook).

    ... the other option:
    include the font, and use some pixelfonts instead...
    howto -> http://www.miniml.com

    hope this helps.
