Hopefully a quickie: Am I the only person that can never get setNewTextFormat to work? When I change the text of a field, I always seem to have to run setTextFormat, even if I've setNewTextFormat to the format I want. Is there some foolproof system for getting this working without having to keep

What do you want to achieve, Danny? AFAIK setNewTextFormat is meant for user entered text, like mentioned in the LiveDocs, which works well for me. public setNewTextFormat(tf:TextFormat) : Void Sets the default new text format of a text field. The default new text format is the

Any examples out there? I've got as far as resizing a user supplied image and am about to work on the ratio remaining fixed. Just thought I'd throw this out there as I think it may be tricky. How are they resizing? Which bit is tricky? Maintaining an aspect ratio isn't too hard - you're

What do you mean specifically? I mean editing AS with JSFL. I'm getting frustrated with not being able to do a search and replace on multiple files, so I was going to write a tool to do it with JSFL - unfortunately, it seems only to work with FLA files, not AS. Danny
