Flash printing, not playing nice
While working on a Flash project this week I came across a nice bug in the printing process. Basically you create a couple of shapes on the stage, call the print process and you get a printed page.. well thats how it is suppose to work.
However I found out that the local version of Flash doesn’t print the colors correctly and I did have one of my developer friends test this with the same results.
After a few hours wasted trying stuff I published the movie and went on with the rest of the project. Well today I tested it all live and found out the colors were perfect.
Local print results
Live (server) print results
You will notice I got a nice purplish blob and no V2 component label when printed locally. Just wanted to put this out there so you don’t waste time testing code like I had to.
