    Anyone have a line on a font that is tall and somewhat thick? Nothing fancy, just tall w/ medium thickness.

    Futura

    I really like the FUTURA family of fonts. It's a San Serif with all the goodies, such as light, medium, bold, italic, condensed, taller, wider... hard to find though. Got it off a font collection from 1992.

    Yes, thanks. These will work great!

    One more question, I just tested my movie on a different machine at work and the fonts have changed on this PC. Is there a way to "lock" in the font or fonts on a movie? I never thought the fonts would change..maybe dumb..but hey, I am new.

    Hey UpNorth! How do you get these special fonts to display on a pc that does not have the respective font installed? It seems to default to a sans-serif font instead of Almonte (my font of choice on this movie) and displays beyond the boundaries of my button. Thanks for the tip in advance, Splat.

    Look on the one of the tabs on the panel with the text options. Somewhere in there it gives you the option (dont have flash on my home computer)
