Anti-aliasing lets you smooth the edges of onscreen text. The anti-aliasing options are particularly effective for rendering smaller font sizes. When anti-aliasing is enabled, all text in the current selection is affected. Anti-aliasing operates with text of all point sizes in the same way.
Anti-aliasing is supported for static, dynamic, and input text if the user has Adobe Flash Player 7 or later installed. It is supported only for static text if the user has an earlier version of Flash Player.
When using small text in an Adobe Flash Professional document, keep in mind the following guidelines:
The Flash text-rendering engine provides clear, high-quality text rendering in Flash documents (FLA files) and published SWF files. Choosing the Anti-alias for Readability setting makes text more legible, particularly when using small font sizes. Custom anti-aliasing lets you specify the thickness and sharpness of fonts that are applied to individual text fields.
To apply anti-alias settings, select a text object on the Stage. In the Property inspector, use the Anti-alias menu to choose the desired option.
To learn more about applying anti-aliasing to text, see the section titled About text and fonts in the Flash documentation.
