Now I know you have probably answered this questions hundreds of time and I know you have posted in the FAQ your answer to this but I am finding that your answer is a bit “thin”.
I am wanting to use a special asian font, and also be able to select which characters to embed (as I do not need all of the characters).
Step 1 – is fine.
Step 2 – I have followed your Step 2A but then the rest becomes not so clear. My questions are these:
1) after creating the empty text field on the stage, does the text field have to be dynamic or static?
2) if dynamic do we need to give it an instance name?
3) once I have selected my font and select which characters to embed, then what? Am I meant to go onto Step 2B in your instructions or do I just publish what I have completed?
I have tried publishing after Step 2A without any success, so I have continued onto Step 2B with no problems but have noticed that the SWF file becomes very large (because it is embedding everything, not what I have selected).
I look forward to your response (you can PM if better than posting on the comments wall).
