Target iOS devices with a working TLF text

Knowing that: Starting February 1, 2015, new iOS apps uploaded to the App Store must include 64-bit support, so AIR 4 will be useless

Flash CC does not support TLF, we are using Flash CS6

Yes, we have to use TLF for right to left languages (Other solutions wont work...)

Air 4 sdk works fine, but unfortunately it does not support 64-bit, we will be using Air 16 beta

Is there a workaround for this? Flash CS6 + IOS + TLF + Air 16

Any modern software support right to left languages, maybe Flash is truly dead this time?

Thanks

Actually it does, and i guess it has been fixed few days ago in AIR 16 beta:

12/15/2014 - Beta - AIR 16.0.0.245 Runtime and SDK


Fixed Issues:

  • [iOS]TLF text fields in Flash CS6 not getting updated. (3839544)

Regarding using TLF in Flash CC, its not really practical while using MovieClips, timeline and animation logic.

Supporting right to left languages should not be a "feature". How do you feel if they suddenly remove the textfield module from Flash while living in the US?

It'a critical situation, and they should be honest if there is any plans in the near future to RE-support Arabic, Hebrew... languages.

AIR has nothing to do with TLF TextFields. If you are using CS6, you still have TLF as an option for text placement. If you have to use Flash CC, you can follow the thread linked below. You just have to copy the SWC files used for TLF from CS6 or CS5 and then import those classes. You only get to use TLF through code and not timeline layout, but at least you still get to use it. And Flash isnt dead just because a feature was removed. I would suspect that they weighed their options on keeping or removing it and found that not enough people took advantage of it to warrant keeping it.

Regarding the AIR16 beta, you never stated in your initial post that you had issues with it working in CS6. Your post implies that you are inquiring if the "Flash CS6 + IOS + TLF + Air 16" would work in the absence of TLF in Flash CC.

As far as how would I feel if Adobe removed TextField's from Flash? I think it would be silly, but only if they didnt replace it with something else because that would leave no means of including copy into ones project except by including images for copy. And that wouldn't work for dynamic solutions or scalability.

I found this post below that had responses from an Adobe staff member stating that the developer should "...make your request heard by the product team, use this form giving your use cases for TFL text" and provides a link to the form to fill out.

Sorry for any confusion.

I have tried the request form many times with no luck.

I guess Flash CC was developed from scratch very quickly, they didn't have the time(maybe the know how) to include the powerful TLF engine (nor for the script editor Auto Format )
