Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-27696) Webdings font not working in Flex 4.1 & AIR SDK 2.0
Date Fri, 12 Dec 2014 01:22:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-27696?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14243551#comment-14243551

Jay Wood commented on FLEX-27696:

Observed the same problem with several "symbol" fonts (e.g., Bookshelf Symbol 7, Marlett,
MT Extra, Symbol, Webdings, Wingdings) -- text with any of these fonts specified is not rendered
correctly in a Spark TextArea or RichEditableText field when used in a browser-based application.It
appears that the text is being rendered in the default font (Times New Roman) instead of the
specified font. 

The fonts display correctly in a Spark Label control, and also in TextArea or RichEditableText
when used in AIR desktop and mobile applications. 

Problem is more pronounced on Windows than on Mac -- tested on Windows 7 in a range of browsers
(IE 11, Firefox, Chrome), and Mac OS X 10.9.5 (Safari, Firefox, Chrome browsers). Using Flex
SDK, with AIR 15 SDK).
