You can create three types of text fields in Adobe Flash Professional: static, dynamic, and input. All text fields support Unicode:
You can create horizontal text (with a left-to-right flow) or static vertical text (with either a right-to-left or left-to-right flow):
When creating static text, you can place text on a single line that expands as you type, or in a fixed-width field (for horizontal text) or fixed-height field (for vertical text) that expands and wraps words automatically. When creating dynamic or input text, you can place text on a single line or create a multiline text field with a fixed width and height.
Flash displays a handle on the corner of a text field to identify the type of text field; its shape and location differ depending on the type of text field and the text's orientation.
Text is horizontal by default. However, static text can also be aligned vertically.
You can use most common word-processing techniques to edit text in Flash. Use the Cut, Copy, and Paste commands to move text in a Flash file as well as between Flash and other applications.
