Nothing new Matt it’s been here from the days of CS4 +
But the question you do need to ask yourself, is why developers ignore most of the TLF engine syntax and stick to the old fashion text field.

Turns out people won’t buy every Flash CS editor that Adobe puts for sale. That is why they don’t use the “new features”.

if you actually read his blog post then it would make more sense to you.

People don’t use TLF plainly because of the weight it adds to your SWF . The plain textfield class hasn’t been altered for years so they are looking at rewriting it from the ground up to support more features and hopefully be less buggy.

^ No Matt question you do need to ask yourself is why use it from the first place.
TLF is 1/3 of the flash IDE and that’s total crazy, so ok you can use raw txt some carve but really the power of TLF come for the simplistic of using Asian lang ` and the use of RTL native +you can work your way around without embedding the font and compile it to all machine but this is have some limitation.

But I think Adobe miss once again there text engine issue, the most imported issue is the Embed font part ,I will strip the engine issue and make it lean more on CSS and less on the engine but hi ….I don’t work there anymore .

Bottom line I don’t see a good reason using TLF as your main text field on your project, look around dev` still work the old fashion way when it comes to flash/text
