Hi,

I have imported a word document into my cast but I don't want it displayed on the stage.  What I need is a print button that when clicked will open the print dialog box for printing the word document.  I am very new to Director so I don't know if this is possible or what I need to complete this task.

Please could someone help me out with this.

Thanks,

John
