How to use subscript & superscript in dynamic and input text field

Issue:

  • Unable to use subscript or superscript in dynamic and input text field.
  • Unable to display subscript or superscript for external loaded text.
  • Unable to use <sub> & <sup> tags in dynamic or input text field.
  • To create subscript or superscript text without Text Layout Framework (TLF).

Reason:
<sub> & <sup> tags are not supported by Flash.

TechNote: Subscript and superscript fail in dynamic and input text fields
LiveDocs: Supported HTML tags

Solution:

  1. Download & install GG Subscript & GG Superscript TrueType fonts. You will need to restart Flash software after installed fonts.
  2. Create a dynamic text field with Arial font embeded. Set the HTML property to true.
  3. Create a dynamic text field with GG Subscript font embeded.
  4. Create a dynamic text field with GG Superscript font embeded.
  5. Use HTML tag to set text to subscript or superscript like below:
    Adobe<font face="GG Superscript">TM</font>

    If you are using ActionScript to test the htmlText, use script like below:

    my_txt.text = "Adobe<font face="GG Superscript">TM</font>";
