    the library linked font worked for me,
    as a test I updated that test file:

    strange, I had tried that exact approach before, and couldn't get it going,
    I must have adjusted some other things in the meantime, it now works well.

    Thanks to all participants of this thread, this was a real worry for me, tried umpteen ways to get this working and now it is all go.

    I can see superpoint working fine now, so its obviosuly working.

    Its all abit of a mess this embed options though, if you dont know exactly how to do it you can actually end up embedding the font in the library, and in a text field which doubles the file size, even though they use the same font....

    Anyway it works now, so Im happy!

    about embedding

    Having carefully read your posts and various other sources (such as Branden Hall) it seems that if you create a textfield dynamically and want to scroll it, then you HAVE to use linkage IDs to embedded fonts. So for Verdana I would need to create 4 fonts in the library for plain, bold, italic and bold+italic. Then I can no longer use TextFormat.bold to get bold text, I have to change the font name instead. Is this all correct? Does anyone know why we can't have dynamic text without embedded fonts behind a mask?
