Flash CS4: styling device fonts in the IDE?

February 8th, 2009 § 0 comments § permalink

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?
