    Need help with Fonts Pasting


    Whenever I copy and paste fonts into Flash MX from
    Word, it pastes into flash as already broken apart. This makes it really difficult for me to edit the flash. This only happens at work. At home if pastes normally. Can anyone please tell me how to fix this problem?

    If you just copy and paste, your text will come into Flash 'grouped'. You would then need to 'ungroup'it. Going too far with this, will cause your text to 'break apart', meaning that it will stop behaving as text and it is now just shapes that cannot be edited as text.

    The correct way to do this is to create an empty text field with your cursor (the text tool should be selected), and while still selected, hit CTRL+V or choose paste.

    Does this help?
