does somebody knows why, in a flash movie, i use one kind of font, upload it to the internet, and when i watch it, some times it changes the font for another one.........for example im doing a web page, and im using "sydnie" which is a font i downloaded from the internet, and when i test it its good, but then when i see it online, all the sydnie font part is changed for another font.........which i dont recognise......i think its arial or something like that........ill appreciate your help

It works for the tests, because you have "Sydnie" installed your computer. On a machine that doesn't have the font installed, a substitute is chosen automatically.

If I recall correctly, the letters you use in the movie will be automatically included as outlines for "static" text, but for "dynamic" or input you have to check in the options, that outlines are included.

OK, I can help you out again, but please, don't forget to search Macromedia's Flash support site ( when you encounter a problem. It most likely has already been solved like this one.
