In Flash CS3, I could use the IDE to create a text field whose font was “bold _sans” (_sans, of course, being the “generic” sans-serif device font).
However, in Flash CS4, it seems I cannot do this, as the style menu is empty and disabled when any of the generic fonts are selected (or if “Use device fonts” is chosen). I can make a _sans text field, but not a bold or italic one.
It is still possible to apply the styling at runtime, but I shouldn’t have to do that.
Is there something I am missing?
