    Embedded Monospaced font NOT?

    This is very strange...whatever monospaced font I use to embed into my SWF will not line up correctly in a dynamic text box set to "anti-alias for readability", though it does if I use the font as a device font...

    Stranger yet, it lines up when I set it to "anti-alias for animation", though the font is light, and not that readable...??

    Any ideas?
    Thanks!

    When you say "line up" what do you mean?

    columns...

    I'm placing this as such:

    Date Location Venue
    6/26 Here Stadium
    6/27 There Arena

    (hard to show, since these are not monospaced fonts, but you get the idea...

    Using the font in Word, and everything lines up...change the ^P to <br>, and copy to a textfile...when I bring it up in the SWF, if it is anything but "anti-alias for readability", everything lines up fine...the readabilty function seems to shift, almost do separate kerns, so things are close to being lined up, but with some off by two spaces...

    I would use the tab function, but I'm betting this would get messed up also...

    Guess I have to show you...

    Here is the monospaced font, set to use device font...

    Here, set as antialias for animation...

    Finally, antialias for readability...

    as you can see, the nice linup of text in the first two gets scattered in the final...

    I have my doubts that this one will be able to be sorted out...

    That is true. Why don't you use Courier new. I have attached my files. Have a look. Otherwise we are talking apples and eggs and never get any solution.

    Well,

    The whole reason I'm embedding a font is so stay away from Courier...but any monospaced font has this problem...being at work, I can't look at your example...so, I need an embedded monospace font...the one I use is freeware, so I'll include it to let you see...
