The Font Symbol

The Font Symbol is a fourth, and often forgotten, symbol type in Flash. It's primarily used to share fonts with between Flash documents with runtime sharing, or to export fonts to Flash documents.

TIP

Using a font symbol with runtime sharing allows you to use the same font across multiple Flash documents without adding the font outline to every single one of the SWF's, keeping file sizes at a minimum. Remember, Static Text automatically embeds the font outline in the SWF when the file publishes, adding file size.
