Ok, I just downloaded Flash Paper so I'm new to it.  My end users will be converted their Word docs to swf files.  I want these swf files to appear as though it wasn't created in flash paper and I also want these swf files to allow for transparency backgrounds.  Is that possible?  I changed the bg in the Word doc, converted it, then opened the file and still white bg!  Also, how do you get rid of top menu.

Thanks Aneesh, I'll try that.  Also, if I link to a flash paper swf file, inside another swf file, will it always have that menu bar at the top?

yes,  
you can load it in another swf, and mask the loade movieClip so that top bar should not be visible...

here I have uploaded a working sample for you
download link:
http://www.4shared.com/file/5067375/562a0188/hide_flash_paper_menu.html

it loads flash paper swf using loadMovie and doesn't show flash paper menu on top.
