Join Anastasia McCune for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding Text Layout Framework (TLF) text, part of Up and Running with Flash Professional.
To explore TLF Text, let's go ahead and start a blank FLA file.…Go-ahead and Save the file as TLF.fla anywhere on your computer.…TLF Text stands for Text Layout Framework and basically it offers a lot more…text manipulation methods than Classic Text does.…TLF Text was introduced in Flash CS5 and your end users must have at least Flash…Player 10 for TLF Text to work.…
Click on your Text tool and in the Property Inspector if TLF Text is not showing…in the Text type dropdown, select it.…Under the secondary dropdown you can see different types of TLF Text available…and they're different than what the Classic Text options are to.…With TLF Text, you can have Selectable text, which means it appears onscreen and…users can highlight it with their mouse, copy and paste the text into something…like a Microsoft Word document.…You can't do that with Classic Text, which is why it's an option with TLF.…
Read Only text is just like it sounds.…It's just read-only.…You can't copy and paste it out of the published SWF file.…
