Inserting a Flash text object

Inserting a Flash text object

The Flash text object lets you create and insert a Flash SWF file that contains just text. This allows you to create a small, vector-graphic movie with the designer fonts and text of your choice.

To insert a Flash text object:

  1. In the Document window, place the insertion point where you want to insert the Flash text.
  2. To open the Insert Flash Text dialog box, do one of the following:
    • In the Common category of the Insert bar, select Media and click the Flash Text icon.This is a picture of the feature being described.
    • Select Insert > Media > Flash Text.

    The Insert Flash Text dialog box appears.

  3. Complete the Insert Flash Text dialog box, and click Apply or OK to insert the Flash text in the Document window.

    If you click Apply, the dialog box remains open, and you can preview the text in your document.

To modify or play the Flash text object, use the same procedure as you would for a Flash button (see Modifying a Flash button object).
