How do I get special characters such as âæèêíó to show up in dynamic text?
You need to embed these special characters in the text fields first. To do this, open the FLA and select the text field. In the properties panel, press the “Embed” button and you will then see a field labelled “Include these characters” – paste the special characters that you need here.
NB: When you save the XML remember to always save the XML for UTF -8 encoding. You can set the encoding type by choosing ‘save as’ and selecting UTF -8.
Note: Some fonts don’t have special characters such as pixel fonts or non-system fonts. So make sure the font you want to use has these special characters. You can check by opening the font in a character map which will display all the possible characters.
