Flash IDE Fonts not showing up problem

December 19th, 2012 by Slav

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).

    This was a nightmare… the solution I found was converting the font I was using from otf to ttf using an online free font converter…
    But I had no idea what had caused this.

    The best bet is to work with a company that already has some momentum
    in the field. Aside from hide and seek and charade, a large variety of
    card and board games are also among the ideal choices that you can look into.
    When they were real life games then they would have the same concept and would still
    be as appealing to people if not more.
