This is not a bug, DefineText has no layout information. Please select the appropriate System font for fontId=30 tag. You forgot to attach the swf file, so we can't help more.

This text is using the Architecture font. Download this font for example this site: (ttf) Install it as a system font. Select fonts/DefineFont3 (30) in FFDec's left tree. Select "Architecture" fron the "Source font" dropdown. Press the "Set advance values" button. You can try to edit the text again. The result should be much better, but still different... probably there are multiple "Architecture" fonts... your SWF file contains 2 different Architecture font (28 and 30) You can try to find another font file on the internet or set the advance values manually with raw editing.
You don't have to use "Architecture" font, you can use any which looks like that... (has the same character width)

I have trying this solution. Of course, result is different but not the reached goal. See my solution : to create a second line as : y = 200 ]first line[ x = 0 y = 400 ]second line With this method, all words are displayed.
Is it possible to modify the method for displaying lines in function of Definetext ? Because, it is to difficult to transform all text... Sometime, lines are to larger than original ; Sometime, lines are concatened (spaces are not displayed). I understand that DefineText have not layout information. Maybe, GUI must be create "virtual layout" before editing. Is it possible ?
I try to make something which might help, but it won't be an ultimate solution.

Please try the latest nightly. FFDec now calculates a "virtual" letter spacing value for static texts. You can change this value manually, if you don't change it, and don't change the text, the total width should be exactly the same as before editing. (Only the total, because the letter spacing is an average value)

(You still need to set the proper font as i wrote earlier for perfect result)
I close this issue due to inactivity. Please create new issue if problem still exists.
