Font substitution error when using Flash 5

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I have just upgraded my Macromedia Flash from 5 to 8, and I keep getting errors with the fonts! When I open my projects from Flash 5, I get this error message that calls for a font substitution. If I revise a project from Flash 8, it says that my fonts are wrong! I have reformatted my computer already and reinstalled Flash 8, but the fonts are still unavailable! Can anyone help? Thank you!

Font substitution error when using Flash 5


Hello Jane Johnson,

You will have to check if you have mistakenly moved the fonts to a different folder and return them back to the folder that has the fonts in the program files.

But in case you are using a Mac, since you have not mentioned which operating system you are using, then macromedia sometimes has issues with systems that have more than 256 fonts. To resolve the issue in Mac, you will need to remove or change the fonts that you might have installed to a number that is allowed for the complete list of fonts by the system.

Hope this helps.
