Q: I alter the text in flash and the changes appear when I play the .FLA unpublished movie, but when I publish to .SWF, it is gone. Not a trace. Please, advise.
A: The problem is probably in fonts. Before editing a flash layout, you should install ALL the fonts that came with a template package. Please, check the entire Fonts folder within the template package. After you install the required fonts, the text will almost certainly be visible in the exported .SWF movie.
