    Blurry text & weird problem?

    Hi,

    I've developed a website but I'm finding it difficult to keep sharp clean text. I'm trying to use 10 and 12 point Arial with no alias text on it.

    I read up on kirupa and tried setting the font to dynamic, but this causes the font to change to times new roman when I publish it. I've set the co-ordinates to even numbers just in case this could cause a problem, but this still isn't working. Is there anything else I can try?

    If you go to this link and check out the text on the education rollover, you'll see what I mean. The other rollovers on that site look fine.

    Forgive my ignorance, but how do I do that? I tried looking up on google and found one site that gave instructions, but it didn't work.

    Just embedded the fonts using the text properties window and clicking on edit character options, i added in uppercase, lowercase and numerical. I just tried this on one text box with an Arial font size 12. The text looks like a different blur has been applied to it. Am I doing something wrong?

    PS - I followed this tutorial on how to embed fonts.

    To embed the text:

    Click one the text box, and open the properties panel. On the right there will be an "embed..." button, click it, and then a box opens up. Click the auto fill button, and press okay. Also, the text has to be dynamic, so just switch it if it's static text.


    The problem that you're probably having:
    Is that the X and Y cordinates of the text have decimals in them. If they do, switch these decimals to 0's.

    Are you talking about the "characters" button? I'm using MX 2004. I've gone through that process if that's what you're talking about, if it isn't can you explain a little better as to where that button is?

    I've tried playing around with that but to no avail, I've been messing around with this for a while and I've checked out the boards before but haven't gotten anywhere

    Thanks for the reply

    I just bit the bullet and got flash 8 pro. The text looks fine and all is working well.

    Do I have to embed the font for every piece of dynamic text that I want to use?
