    TextFormat.getTextExtent() forgets text


      As part of a larger printing problem (involving printing dynamic text without scrolling problems), I have created an empty movie clip (printClip) and inside an empty text field (printArea). However, the text field seems to be forgotten by Flash after using the TextFormat.getTextExtent() function meaning I can't access the text (please see code).

      Does anyone know why this is happening and how it can be resolved?
