    I need to embed a font into flash because I am using scrollable dynamic text. The problem is I found various tutorials but I can't get it to work. I think I'm missing something. Is there an easy way to embed fonts in flash?

    I don't want to convert them into a symbol because I tried this and it stopped the scrolling from working.

    After lots of searching I found a way that worked for me:



    You can embed specific characters if you know exactly what characters need to be displayed in the SWF files, you can embed a set of characters (for example, all numbers), or you can embed the entire font in the SWF file. If you are dynamically loading text or having a user type text in, and don?t know the characters you will load, you probably need to embed the entire font.

    To embed individual characters or a set of characters, follow these steps.

    Select the Dynamic or Input text field you want to embed characters for.

    Open the Property inspector and click the Character button.

    Click the Specify Ranges button, and then select one of the character ranges from the list box.

    Alternatively or additionally, you can enter specific characters into the text field below the list

    They don't mention that one of the character ranges is, from what I remember, `all characters', so that you can embed the entire font into the movie (useful for your instance, for example, where you don't really know which specific characters you'll be using).

    Thats true, but it makes the file size larger apparently.

    Well, embedding anything will make the file size larger. If you embed a certain range of characters, it will add less to the size than if you embed the entire font. On the other hand, that means you can't use the rest of the font.

    Yep, that covers just about everything. In fact, some fonts don't even include all punctuation, and some don't have lowercase, either, as it turns out.
