OpenType font display problems in Flash Professional

I recently came across an usual and very issue frustrating issue in Flash, whereby a number of OpenType fonts were not displaying at all – both on the stage and when publishing a .swf file. This included Gotham, Interstate, Helvetica and Zapfino OpenType fonts.
Strangely, these fonts would appear when typing in a newly created text box but as soon as the text box was de-selected, the text vanished and the containing text box could not be re-selected.flash This was when using standard ‘classic text’, static text type. In addition, the font looked fine in the drop down preview box within Flash and in various other software packages including Photoshop and the issue affected both CS5.5 and CS4 versions I was using.
After various Google searches, head-scratching and trial and error, the following steps fixed the font display issue I was experiencing in Flash:
  • Create a new Flash Action Script 3.0 document
  • Create a new text box (classic, static text) and type a few characters using a font that vanishes
  • Change text box type from ‘Classic Text’ to ‘TLF Text’
  • In Publish Settings, select Flash Player 9 and OK when the pop-up warning box about TLF support appears
  • The text box should have automatically converted back to classic text and the font should now display fine
  • Restart Flash – all fonts should now display as normal.


Adobe Flash CS3

♠ Rakshith Mlore in ,,
To get right down to basics, there are many of you who may have never used Adobe Flash, or for that matter, any Adobe product before. This chapter will help you understand the interface, timelines, layers, guides, and more...

The Interface

When you first load Flash CS3, you will see the Welcome screen. This Welcome Screen (in Flash CS3) is slightly different from the Welcome screen of earlier versions of Flash, for example in, say, Flash 8. You can clearly see the difference in the pictures shown below and on the following pages:
Macromedia Flash 8Adobe Flash Professional CS3
   The Welcome Screen of Flash 8                                The Welcome Screen of Flash CS3

The Workspace

The Workspace is the arrangement of various Flash-elements such as the Tools panel, Control panels, Property inspectors and Windows. We will walk you through what each of these is in later sections. You can change the workspace layout from the “Workspace” drop-down menu. There are three workspace layouts available to you in Flash CS3: Default, Icons and Text Default, and Icons Only Default. The same options can be seen from the Window menu as well: Window --> Workspace.
