Hmmm, just copied the Flash Asset PPC.xtra file from the trial version of Director on the Mac, but that didn't work.
Maybe that's not the problem.
Anyone out there succesfully created a projector on the Mac that uses Valentin Flash Print that could help me?
Latest is, I've debugged this and the printjob.start() line isn't triggering the operating systems print dialog box:-
myPrintJob = pFlashSprite.newObject("PrintJob")
ok = myPrintJob.start()
which is supposed to start the print job and bring the printer dialog box up doesn't work.
The return value ok is 1
But no print dialog box.
What have I missed (started talking to myself now).
Still open to other voices. cheers
For anyone interest, I have discovered the reason the printjob class is not working on the mac.
It's the latest update from Adobe that fixes the problem of embedded fonts on mac OSX lion.
Unfortunately it breaks the actionscript2 printjob class, so I'm going to have to go back to
pre latest update to publish a mac version with printing that works!
I will not mark this as answered, because I'll need to get on to Adobe about this.

I'll need to get on to Adobe about this.
They are aware and are (hopefully) working on a fix.
Ok Sean, thanks
I'd just like to make it clear for everyone that Valentin Flash Print is not the problem.
It's the latest Adobe Director update.
I have huge respect for Valentin and would not want this discussion to have an adverse affect
on the fantastic work he has made available freely to the public.
For anyone who would like to know. Valentin was kind enough to give me the idea of using
an old version of the Flash Asset xtra from an old release of the shockwave player.
I couldn't find an old version, so downloaded the latest on to the mac. Went to it's xtra folder and
took the Flash Asset xtra from there and put it in my projectors xtra folder.
It worked, which is good news!
