How to Print a Print2Flash Document on the Printer?

Print2Flash documents may be easily printed on the real printer to get a document hard copy. The procedure differs between Flash and HTML5 document versions.

Printing Flash documents

The procedure slightly differs between ActionScript 2 and ActionScript 3 types of documents.

Printing ActionScript 3 documents

To print an ActionScript 3 document you need:

  1. Click Print button on the toolbar. The Print Options dialog window will be shown:

    In this dialog window you may change the printing options. In From and To fields you may enter the numbers of the first and last pages to print. In Scaling field you may choose how the page should be scaled regarding the paper size. There are two options:

    • No scale - the document is printed without scaling. If you print the document on the paper of the same size as the paper size of the original document from which you obtained this Print2Flash document, you should obtain exactly the same printout as from original document. Note that in this case if the printer has non-printable area at the paper margins, the content of the page will be clipped by those margins (because the printer cannot print at that area);
    • Auto-Rotate and Fit - the document is scaled so as to fit the paper size. Thus the pages may be reduced or enlarged. Additionally, if a page can be printed at a greater scale if the image is rotated by 90 degrees, the image is rotated. For example, if you have landscape oriented pages in your document but you print on a portrait oriented paper, the pages will be rotated. No clipping at the paper margin occurs in this mode.
       
    After you finished choosing options in Print Options dialog window, click OK button.

  2. The standard operating system Print dialog is shown. Select the printer you wish to print the document on
  3. Click Preferences to setup additional printer settings
  4. Click Print button

Printing ActionScript 2 documents

To print an ActionScript 2 document you need:

  1. Click Print button on the toolbar. The standard operating system Print Dialog will be shown.
  2. Select the printer you wish to print the document on
  3. Click Preferences to setup additional printer settings
  4. If you do not want to print all document pages, you may specify the range of pages to print in the Pages field
  5. Click Print button

Printing HTML5 documents

Printing of HTML5 documents works properly only in certain browsers and relies on the browser printing capabilities. The best results are achieved in Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Safari, Opera and Firefox browsers. To print an HTML5 document you need:

  1. Click Print button on the toolbar. The standard browser Print Dialog window will be shown
  2. Select the printer you wish to print the document on

However, to achieve the best results you may need to configure your browser printing preferences to turn off page margins, headers and footers. Also it is better to use the paper size corresponding to the paper size of the original document. Below are the specific printing instructions for some browsers.
