Dim Print Command
The next step after designating frames with labels is to disable the Print command in the Flash Player context menu. We do this because ultimately we customise our own button to execute the Print command but more on that later. There are two approaches in this tutorial, you can either remove the context menu altogether or disable the Print command by dimming it.
To dim the Print command, open your movie in Flash, select the relevant frame
and choose Modify > Frame. The Frame properties dialog box will appear. Click on the Label tab, so far it's just like designating a printable frame, however, in the Name Field enter: !#p
Your dialog box should look like this.
Tip: You only have to label one frame on the main timeline in the movie with !#p to dim the Print command in the context menu.
