Hi
1:-

I wanted to print my flash movie (Myfile.fla). I tried to print file-> print, it prints only the first frame even if I the active frame is not the first one. If the movie is published to exe then there is no print option in the menu.
Is there a way please to print ?


2:-

Can we produce slides for projector  like from powerpoints. All you need is to take your powerpoint file to any photo shop to produce projector slides for presentation. Is that possible with flash?

Thanks

If you publish to html, we can print from the browser but the only problem is that it doesn't display the actual size or as if you publish to  exe.

You will need to read this.... It's heavy stuff but reveals all about printing from flash.

There are loads of options, including specifying which frames are printable, which areas to print, etc etc.

As for question 2,

You can always take your flash movie (compiled to a projector .exe file) into the photo shop, after you have defined the printable frames.  Then you just get the photo shop to print the selected frames onto slides...

So the short answer is yes, it can be done.
