How To Successfully Print Pages Of A Flash or SWF File?

    Hello all,

    I am attempting to print a page of my flash file from within flash (in the root of the file) and certain things are left out, as they are left out on the actual flash 8 viewing screen.

    I also tried compiling it and then going to print from SWF file on the page I wanted a print out of, that worked better but still very distorted. I'm just wondering how I can go about accomplishing the goal of printing out various pages of my flash file.

    Also I know that like internet resolution is like 72dpi but the flash file I'm not sure what resolution it is at, is there a way to check? I'd like to print the various pages of my flash file at the highest possible resolution, so knowing all that thank you all for the help!

    Travis

    P.S. I mean I know I could always take a screen shot of it and do that but then it's only at 72 dpi right? I'm looking for the 300dpi what the flash file is probably natively in right?

    So by that you mean I did the correct steps by going to File->Print from within the SWF? I'm really confused what you are saying, sorry. Is there a way I can tell what dpi the actual .fla file is? If the .fla is say 300dpi, when exported to .swf does it stay at 300dpi within the file?


    About printing running flash content, that is not what I am trying to accomplish. I am trying to print a slice of time of the flash movie. If there are different clips of the flash file I just want to print one of the clips per say, which is a static image when the mouse is not moving.

    Thanks for any help here sorry that I am so confused.
