Alpha-fade dynamic text problem

I have some text which was set up with an alpha fade-in motion tween (0-100%) and worked fine until the text was made dynamicaly loaded from a text file and variable. Now it still shows the fade-in in work mode, but during play it just pops directly to the final 100% state.

Any suggestions appreciated.

This is because you can’t animate dynamic text without embedding the font outlines. If you embed the font outlines in your textbox, the animation should work.

You can embed the font outlines by pressing the Character button in the property inspector when having the textfield selected. In the window that pops up, you can embed your font outlines :slight_smile:

Wow. Fast reply. Thanks.
(And thanks for the welcome too!)

You’re welcome :slight_smile:

OMG! And please do NOT cross-post. I’ve removed the thread you posted in the Flash MX 2004 section.

kode, yeah, I realized I posted that one into the wrong place too late.

Well, you can always delete your post (the thread will be automatically deleted if it’s the first post) and re-post in the appropriate section, or contact a moderator if you’d like the thread to be moved to another section. :slight_smile:
