    fonts not showing in flash

    Hi - Id like to use this font - however, not all the cuts appear in the flash for some reason. They do however show up in photoshop etc. Is it just the fault of the fonts maybe?

    thanks for any help!

    Hey Frets! Unlock my Pipes post. I am the designer of Pipes TV. I tried to email you or send you a message but you have turned off those preferences.

    If you dont belive me. I have some tests uploaded to my own site. I didnt know that a moderator could pass judgment without asking questions first.

    Let down that hair trigger clicker of power for a second and moderate some 2advanced knock offs.

    Thanks - and pretty please unlock my post or turn your email messaging back on so I dont have to ruin another guys post.

    This board has really gone down hill since it first started.

    haha sorry the original post had the correct site

    www.pipestv.com

    The other was just to show that I actually did the work

    To respond to your post. I have had issues with fonts in flash - some work great some don't. If you want to send the font over I can test it.

    Does the font show up in your list of fonts in flash or is it just removed from the list?

    If it is set for a dynamic font then you would def. want to embed it.

    I only get the base version. I did some searching on google but there was no real explination for why font variations are missing from your font menu. I found some info for Fireworks and Freehand but none for flash. I have run into this issue with other fonts where most show up but a few variations do not. Perhapse the person who created the font did not include the proper outlines for all the variations? Not sure
