click file/publish settings/flash/settings/ and select "merged into code" for the default linkage of your runtime shared library settings.
Thanks for the quick response, but that's not the problem. I had already tried that before you posted the response but that didn't help. I tried to export as an MOV and it came out well as a quicktime file but as an avi file it not only weighs 570mb (quicktime file only 11mb) it still doesn't show the writting.
you'll probably need to use something other than avi or other than tlf text.
