I have some Simple Question about Font.

1) Why Original-SDK's EditText sample dosen't work on flash player? (it works on browser...)
2) Can i make a text effect file without definition Glyphs? (use client device font COMPLETELY...or somehow)

Thanks in advance

1) Donno.
2) I think glyphs are neccessary. I believe the use of client device fonts was meant for use with the edit text fields only.

The sample doesn't work because Middlesoft doesn't know how to program :-).

You can't make a font without glyphs...fonts are by definition sets of glyphs. However, you do not have to define them all by hand. If you would like to use True Type fonts and have a Win32 based system, I have written the code to export font gylphs into flash files. If someone can convince FlashKit to start up a flash SDK code section on their site, I would gladly upload it (otherwise, you can find it on the Macromedia newsgroup).
