just got back from a six week holiday, so was wondering if i’d lost my mind while i was away…
steps to recreate weird problem:
1. set up two dynamic text boxes on the stage – one bold and one not bold – both with letter spacing of 1.(hint at solution) give them instance names – text1 and text2
2. set their text attributes in actionscript eg.
3. run out – notice that neither text box is bold.
for some bizarre reason, giving the text box a letter spacing value!=0 means that it loses its formatting when you set its text value.
to resolve either set letter spacing to 0, or follow my earlier post in setting text with a letter spacing value.
