[Platform_Mac]Textfields are displaying text vertically in 10.3.183.5 release
Textfields display text vertically regardless of the width of a textfield.
Steps to Reproduce:
Some code was posted to a discussion http://forums.adobe.com/thread/889711?tstart=0
I have reproduced the bug in Chrome and Firefox on both Mac and Windows after updating to 10.3.183.5
Text should be horizontal
Not that I have found
updated by Ping Huang:
the internal bug repro test steps shows this happens only in following test sequence :
1) Instantiate a text field.
2) Before adding text to the text property move the x property to -120;
3) Add text to the text property.
4) Move the textField x property to 50;
5) Add to the stage.
So , the possible workaround you could try is that avoid this sequence or set textfiled's initial x property to positive number.
Updates: This issue is fixed in player version 11.0. if you experience other issues, pls help to report a new bug. Thanks much.
1, For issues related to Video/Audio/Rendering, please upload your system info file.

We are about to release two prominent and highly visible internal business applications and this bug renders them virtually unusable.
Additionally, we have three existing intranet apps (HR, Security Clearance, and Help Desk Exchange Email Ticket Processing) that are in production that will be impacted severely.
An immediate minor version release is critical to correct this issue, as the 10.3.183.5 release contained critical vulnerability fixes and cannot (will not) be rolled back.
I don't see how you can justify the negative PR and business losses against the urgency that is patently obvious to everyone.

I just ran into this a few days ago. I wasted about about an hour coming up with a workaround.

This bug is negatively affecting our business. It shows up in a key part of our Flash based RIA application. We have thousands of paying customers that have begun calling and complaining to us.
Please, please DO NOT wait for Flash 11 to release a fix. Please fix it in version 10 ASAP.

It's ruined many of my websites (I'm a webdesigner) which have been running fine for a long time. It has also ruined a new project on the day of it's launch! This bug could potentially cost me thousands of pounds. It needs to be fixed.

Same problem... please fix it!

please release fix for 10.3.183.5 version. This issue is causing big issues for our app. We downloaded FP 11 Beta (220.127.116.11) to see how it would look. It is not wrapping the texfields properly. The text is not shown vertically but where it should start wrapping, it totally cuts the text. This is not acceptable either. Please re-open this ticket.

It would be really great if you could release updated v 10.3 with a fix. It affects a lot of applications. Thanks a lot!

This bug is severely impacting our live application at www.quickschools.com. We have hundreds of paying users who are suddenly seeing unreadable, vertically-growing text. This is making the application almost unusable.

Although this issue is marked as closed and there seem to be some indicators that this problem has been addressed in a beta version of the player I would like to add that our company cannot afford to update years of (previously working) projects for multiple clients.
This is affecting everything from simple promotional materials to complex CBTs.
In some cases these courses require a considerable amount of time and effort to correct as the process involves much more than just exporting a new swf.
I'm just hoping that a new player is released before client complaints start coming in.

Same symptoms, definitely affecting our users.

Can you please consider backporting the patch for the bug as soon as possible?
We are providing enterprise Flash-based e-learning applications and one of our products got unusable because of the bug, hurting our clients' trust on our products consequently.
We managed to apply workaround for the particular instance of the bug, but still we are concerned about its impact on our other products.
As in gus500's comments, the problem reproduces on Windows as well (IE/FF/Chrome) and it occurs with TextFields with non-dynamically attached ones. The impact of the bug seems to be more serious and your prompt act on this issue would be very much appreciated.

This is affecting our online game BrainNook (www.brainnook.com). Very frustrating because it happens only for people whose Chrome has auto-updated them to this Flash Player version, and there doesn't seem to be an easy way for them to roll back to an earlier version. It makes some screens in the game unreadable -- screens which have been stable and working for months.

We are also affected by this bug severely. We produce a good number of interactives (mostly from CS3) for some large customers that have worked fine up through 10.181 on IE6, IE8, IE9, Safari 5.0, Safari 5.1 and Firefox 5.0 - now they are all broken. The effect is that some of the text is unreadable (aside from looking crummy). The fields are configured as Dynamic Text, Multiline, HTML - font is Verdana and Use device fonts is specified. We are seeing this behavior on the initial field responded to by the user on each entry into the swf.

Our main playback environment for student lecture playback is exhibiting this issue causing main features of our player to be unusable. This is a major problem for us

Check out the text in description window when you mouse over the slide. Pin the description window and view another slide, you won't see the issue as the window is not animated now.
2:28:05 PM GMT+00:00 Aug 12, 2011
I am seeing the same issue on Chrome and Firefox on Windows, Mac, and Linux.
12:00:58 PM GMT+00:00 Aug 12, 2011
I am also seeing this issue on Chrome, Firefox and Safari on the Mac running OSX 10.6.8. Dynamic textfields in SWF (published for Flash Player 8 and Flash Player 9) using device font are displaying the text vertically one character per line (except spaces).
