06-21-2001, 11:24 AM
Alright, this is probably going to end up being a dumb question, but is there anyway to have a dynamic or input text box work without embedding the font? Basically, I have an eMail form movie that dynamically loads into my website whenever needed. The problem is that the fields only work on the web when the fonts are embedded. I've tried using the _sans that I thought was some sort of built in font but no luck. I want to keep the file size small (under 10k) and embedding the font adds about 25k. Does anyone know of a solution to this problem or am I out of luck?

you're having trouble with the _sans?

that method should work because flash doesn't embed device fonts (the ones that begin with _) in swf files. :)

basically flash just find a font on the users computer that matches it best, so it won't always turn out exactly the same but it doesn't embed. which is nice. :)
