Chapter 4. TEXT AND FIELD MEMBERS > USING FIELD MEMBERS

USING FIELD MEMBERS

Once the only text option in Director, field members are still useful for a variety of tasks. For one, they take up much less file space than text members. A text member with the phrase “This is a test” placed in it is about 1,600 bytes, whereas a field containing the same text is only about 700 bytes. The difference is even more dramatic when you use anti-aliased text in the text member.

A Field Member editing window, shown in Figure 4.9, looks different from a text member editing window. For one thing, the ruler is gone. Field members do not have the capability to recognize indents or tabs. However, you can still adjust the width of the field.
