Dynamic Text problems in Flash 8

Here are my problems. It seems wierd to me that nobody asked this before as i didn’t found any recent commentary on this one.

When i rotate a dynamic text it dissapears completely. But, if you go over the position where the text should be, the cursor changes the the select text icon(that vertical bar) and if you double click it and select copy from the right click menu it copies the text.

And i have the same problem when i try to mask a dynamic text. It completely dissapears. Also i can select the text. Don’t know what the problem is but it’s getting on my nerves.

Dunno what the problem is. Any help would be appreciated
