Flash IDE Fonts not showing up problem
This is something that happened to me last week, some fonts (primarily open type fonts) just suddenly stopped showing up in Flash IDE. It was weird, as you could still select the text inside the textfield, copy and paste, but the font type outlines were not showing up in IDE or when compiled. It turns out, this was caused by a recent Microsoft Windows security update! Fortunately there’s easy way to fix this. Go to your Control Panel\System and Security\Windows Update at the left panel’s bottom there’s a link to Installed Updates. Click on that link and search for update : “kb2753842”. Right click on this update and select “Uninstall”. After the restart your fonts should be working again!
If the windows update dialogue comes back again, make sure to unselect this update and decline it for any other future updates .. (until MS releases a future fix for this mess).
