Topic: Masking simpleviewer in flash knocks out xml text?

I was wondering  what is going wrong?  I am inserting  simpleviewer into a layer below  a mask in flash 8 and the mask shows the image thumbnails correctly but not the xml text?  And yes the mask is covering the text area also.  It actually shows up if I take the mask off but when it is on all graphics show up and no text... please help!

thanks,

Brian

Re: Masking simpleviewer in flash knocks out xml text?

SimpleViewer by default uses the system font, which doesn't work well with masks.

Assuming you are using SimpleViewer-Pro, you can embed the font used in the caption and title symbol textfields, which will avoid the problem.

Thanks for that.... That probably is it and I was thinking it was something else.  I am using pro is the caption and title symbol textfields in the options.as file?

The caption and title textfields are in the FLA Library. Check the documentation, section 2.3: http://www.airtightinteractive.com/simp … ation.html

After doing a few trials I was able to embed arial and get it to work.
