I have a bitmap font that won't show up at all in the text dialog box.

There is a fix for the preferences in Fireworks 3.0 for this situation, but is there one for Flash as well?

Thanks,
Marc

This one has come up before and I'm pretty sure Flash can only display vector based fonts.

hmmm, odd, i use bitmapped fonts all the time, and they've always show up fine...

If you mean the pixel fonts from places like http://www.miniml.com then they are actually vector fonts ... just designed to look like bitmaps for aliasing reasons

i mean fonts like frutiger bitmapped fonts or futura 2 bitmapped fonts.

was marcphu talking about aliased type??? oops...

It's both. The font is meant to be used as an aliased font. But the actual font itself is a bitmap as opposed to postscript.
