    Transform dynamic text?

    (Sorry if this is a common post, the search is not working so I cant check if this has been answered before)

    Is there any way to transform Dynamic texts?

    Whenever I rotate, skew or pretty much anything fancy to a dynamic text it stops apearing on screen at runtime.

    Thanks

    James

    You have to embed the font to dynamic textfields. And you should also have them inside movieclips, so you would be rotating or skewing the mc's , not the textfields.

    MC's can be used over and over without adding to memory. And you avoid getting thousands of tweens in your library.
