Chapter 12. Adding Text > Embedding Fonts

Embedding Fonts

When you add a regular text or field text cast member to a movie, Director uses the fonts installed on your computer. When you distribute your movie, Director will look for those same fonts on the computer it’s being played on. If those fonts aren’t available, Director will substitute a different font—generally Arial (on a PC) or Geneva (on a Mac)—greatly diminishing the artistic quality of your movie (Figure 12.42).

Figure 12.42. A text sprite using an exotic font (above), and the same sprite—displayed with a substitute font—on a computer that doesn’t have the specified font installed (below).
