Text in createText gets cut off on top when scaled

When I create a text field dynamically an populate it, everything looks nice. When I scale the parent clip of that dynamic text field, the top part of the text field seems to “scale” more than the actually text leaving the top of the text cut off. Capital letters like “F” look awkward.

I have tried dynamic leading, but to no avail. Does anyone have ANY suggestions at all to resolve this? I HAVE to scale the clip that contains the text field instead of each text field individually, for more reasons than I care to go into :slight_smile:

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

clip.tx2.backgroundColor = 0xBFBFBF;
clip.tx2.background = true;
clip.tx2.embedFonts = true;
clip.tx2.antiAliasType = "advanced";
clip.tx2.text = "I'M a PIRATE";

p.s. (the text does have autoSize etc, this happens across multiple movies with different fonts, so it is a behavior of flash once scaled to a certain point, just trying to jerry rig it to work better)
