Hi,

Can someone please clarify the following two question regarding fonts purchased from Adobe:

1. Can I embed them in a Flash/Flex swf in a non-editable textfield?

2. can I embed them in a Flash/Flex swf editable textfield?

Thanks.

Since no one else has given an answer, I will venture one.

As far as I know, you may use the font in any application you wish, editable or not editable, and any infringement will be on the part of the user, not you.

The obvious case is PDF, where the font is embedded. That format was created to let others see what you create.

In an Illustrator document, the user cannot use the font without having it on the system; otherwise, it is substituted.

I do not know enough about Flash/Flex to know what happens there.

It depends... in general the font vendor controls the End User License Agreement. Font vendor FontFont recently (yesterday) changed their EULA, read about it here:
