Anyone else seen this behaviour in CS5?

I have a classic text, dynamic text box for showing game score.

I've created a font, Arial Bold, and selected it in the Property Inspector.

But if I apply any anti-alias options other than Bitmap, some numbers won't show up, ex. 4

If I set it to Bitmap (or use device fonts) it works fine.

I'm not exporting the font as a class.

The problem only occurs when Bold is selected in the created font.
Bug, I guess.

Disable text anti-aliasing will solve the problem.(Select "Use device font")

i found if you go text > font embedding

then add your font to the list that gets embedded. then you have to choose all the kinds of formatting you've applied to that font as well. like bold, italic, regular. and so on.

if you do all that you shouldn't have any problems. it is a little annoying, as in previous versions like cs3 i never had to do any of this, i just embedded a-z, A-Z and 0-9. and it would work. but i guess theres more to it now. :P

xdeath - that's exactly what I did, but selecting bold results in some numbers not appearing. I tried every approach / combination I could think of.
