Creating the dynamic text area
Now use the text tool to create a large text box filling the bottom half of the stage. Set the properties of the text box as shown below:
- The text area is Dynamic Text rather than Static Text.
- The variable is set to dynamic_text (the variable used in the very beginning of each of your text files)
- The font is set to _sans
The font can be set to other fonts, but be careful. If you use a font other than the system fonts you should experiment with what characters from that font should be embedded (all, lowercase only, etc.). The system fonts (_sans, _serif, etc) are the safest bet, however I've found that about a third of the fonts that I have installed contain the full unicode character set and will display unicode characters just fine.
