Has anyone ever had a problem printing a flash animation that is embedded into an html page? I am just trying to print the entire html page with the flash animation within it. Half of the animation box prints out with colors that are completely wrong and with many vertical lines of disturbance.
Is this a common problem with any of you, or is it just problems with my printer? printer settings? drivers? explorer settings?
I am trying to print on an HP laser color printer, and am printing through IE5.5. I tried printing many different sites with flash animations, all printing out with the same bad quality.
Also, is there any way of specifying, in HTML, whether to print the flash animation or not?
<rant>My boss always wants to view the pages as printouts due to the fact he is an idiot.
If I get one more "move this closer" or "why's this gap here" he is in trouble. Most browsers seem to be pretty poor at printing anything remotely complex on a web page.</rant>
Anyway, Opera has some good options for printing, including resize backgrounds etc. Also printing to pdf has been pretty useful. Use the print to image facility for flash. Having said that it is still a bit tricky to get things just as you might want.
