I want to pulish the current view in my workspace to a png. I tried publishing it as a png but it just exports the current frame. I want everything I see in the workspace exported, all layers etc. as a static image. How can I do this?

can you explain a littler further? a png will always export just one frame. Did you mean one layer? Are you talking about nested movie clips?

Consider all the layers of visible. Move the playhead to frame 10. At the current frame I want to simply export everything that is seen on the screen.

I figured this out. You can export as an image and use it as a still shot of the entire scene.
