#1152 Parameters for texts DefineText (11) disappear and x and y values are not correctly set
Author: user joneleit

Type: bug

State: closed Help

> What steps will reproduce the problem? Load NOVALIGHT.SWF and edit 2nd entry in: texts DefineText(11) line 13 to read © 2000-2016 Novalight (without changing any other parameters). The changed text is truncated when the file is played (Run F6). Next step is: Save as NOVALIGHTX.SWF Next step is: Close all and then open file NOVALIGHTX.SWF Opening: texts DefineText (11) shows no parameters but the corrected © 2000-2016 Novalight in the Preview pane. Selecting previous tag in Parameters then shows the parameters for the 1st texts entry (DefineText (7)). Next step: Run (F6) plays file correctly but text is truncated and correct parameters for DefineText (11) not showing. > What is the expected output? What do you see instead? I expect to see the modified parameters but the parameters for the previous entry show up. I think some of the x and y parameters must also be changed to display the modified text correctly when the file is played. Don't know to what to change. No Java Log errors this time! > What version of the product are you using? Is it "nightly build"? Which operating system do you have? Latest version7.1.2 running on Windows 10 Pro 64-bit > Please provide any additional information below. If the problem is related to a SWF file, attach it here, otherwise we can't help you.

That's GREAT and fast work, too - THANKS! :) Now, can you tell me the values of the DefineText (11) parameters (or others) that have to be changed so that the entire modified text fits, right-aligned: '© 2000-2016 Novalight', instead of being truncated? For the time being, I just replaced '2000' with '2016' but having the entire modified text would be better. Thanks!
You should change the xmin and xmax parameter. I don't know the correct value, but you can try to change them. The values are in twips. 1 pixel = 20 twips.
Thanks! I already accomplished it by decreasing the Translatex value until everything fit.
