Hi, I made the website www.jofi.be

I used special fonts in the flashfiles. But on some computers u can not see the fonts. So it happens that u cant see the navigation.

Is there any way to fix this?

thanks in advance

Don't use special fonts that no-one else has? :)
"Safe" fonts are:Times New Roman Courier Arial serif sans-serif monospaceThe latter three aren't actually fonts, they're font families. The system will choose a specific font.

Actually, contrary to Tweys (true) statement, you can make the fonts avaliable to everyone in your Flash files. When you publish the fla into an swf, you just need to embed the fonts.

It is different on how to embed the fonts in Flash based on the version you are using.

Either post back with your Flash version, or you can go to the HELP section of Flash and index search Embed Fonts.

Font embedding? :-\

I've never seen the point. If you're going to distribute the font anyway, you might as well draw the text using vectors in the first place.

Convert Lines to Fills. Select all text and it's done. Even easier than embedding fonts and much easier than drawing your letters. I wasn't going to battle semantics, just saying it was do-able :D

Not off the top of my head. I make all my text in FLash it self so they are all vector to begin with.

What are you trying to accomplish? I may know another way. Or do you just want pixel graphics?
