[fl8 as2] dynamic text field question

For some reason, when I load the content of a variable into the “.text” of a dynamic field it’s not applying all of my formatting I have assigned to the field in the properties dialog box… it does seem to inherit the font family (century gothic), but it doesnt “bold” and although the field is set to “multi line” it truncates all the data after the end of the first line… anyone have an explanation for this?
