I've been working with the Formatted Text object and I've come across what I believe to be a bug. Since there seems to be no way to specify font details through the object's actions, I've been passing it raw RTF-formatted text from the Rich Edit object (using GetRTFText$) as a substitute. This has worked well except for the fact that the font family is never passed to the Formatted Text object correctly. Size and color seem to work fine.
This is odd, because the Formatted Text object will correctly parse the RTF font family data from the Rich Edit object if it is first saved as an external file and then loaded from disk. Therefore, I believe there might be a problem with the Formatted Text Insert String$ action.
Can anyone confirm this, and if so, is there a planned fix?
Thanks in advance.
