Dynamic text field in nested mc

I’m having problems with a dynamic text field not displaying its text. It’s nested several clips deep, but if I check the “display variables” debug option, it’s receiving the text from the variable; if just doesn’t show.

After searching around a bit, I’ve tried the following things:

  • Setting the mask through ActionScript, rather than through the GUI
  • Making the dynamic text field its own movie clip
  • Embedding the font for the dynamic text field

None of these, either individually or in any combination with the other methods, have shown the text in the text field. Anyone have any other ideas?
