    you know, I have found alot of weird problems with flash. I made an explotion effect for a menu in flash, and everytime I did the S my program would perform an illigal operation... When I ran across this it had lost 3 hours worth of work. I tryed reinstalling and that didn't help either. It really sucked. I have found basic fonts work the best with flash. And when that don't work, try a different word.

    i apprecite the reply, but thats not the way to handle it. i love problems... errrr uugghhh,ahhh, yea im lookin for a solution or at least a reason, now way to run from the problem. 'ey the best way to learn in to face the problem. anyways, i have:
    1. sst the pixel to an integer,
    2. use the font at its recomended sixe ( usually 8 )
    3. used pixel fonts.

    in order to elimiate the filled letters i have tried the following but.....
    dynamic and input text fields are NOT a solution since this option does not inclute the font outlines, which means that the intended font will be replaced by a font residing on the end users computer, the device font option returns similar results,
    these options do eliminate the closed letters but it is clear that this is not the solution. does anyone have a safe font that will not display like a piece? or at least a recomendation?
    thanks again

    i've run into similar problems with some fonts, even if used "correctly". fontsforflash.com has a good line of fonts that i've had no problems with at all.

    i used to be the same way. after messing around with crappy free pixel fonts for a while, i broke down and bought some. they are pretty reasonable there, and you'll have no problems with them. if you are doing anything commercial with flash, remember that your time is money too. a half hour of your time searching for free fonts and messing around with crappy ones, costs you the same as buying it.
