Thread: I need help with masking dynamic text in Flash 5

    I am making a part of a website where there is a whole lot of dynamically loaded text from a text file.

    There is an action on a layer in _root that calls the text assigned to the variable "content" in the text file "text.txt" to be loaded in a dynamic text box with the variable "content" in a movie clip called "text".

    The text loads up inside the text box in the mC. No problems there.

    The problem is when I try and only show some of the text in the text box. When I try and mask some of it, the whole lot disappears and nothing shows up.

    How can this be overcome?

    Thanks in advance,

    Have you embeded the font in the textarea? Click the [...] button on the text options panel to do this.
