Select device fonts

When you use a font installed on your system in a Flash document, Flash embeds the font information in the Flash SWF file to ensure that the font is displayed properly. In addition to embedding fonts, you can use the device fonts option. This option finds the fonts on a viewer's computer that most closely resemble the specified device font. You can use device fonts only with static text.

You'll specify that the selected text uses device fonts.

1.
With the "Please submit your contact information" text still selected on the Stage, in the Font pop-up menu in the Property inspector, select _sans.

2.
In the Property inspector, select Use Device Fonts.

You will not see a difference in the text if you have the Arial font installed on your computer.
