Part One - Creating a dynamic textfield to display the text
Ok, I made the fla as simple as possible, one scene with one frame, one print-button and one movieclip with three frames. On the main timeline I created one dynamic textfield. In the properties window I named the Var-field: scrollText.
In the first frame put this action;
This is enough to load an external textfile that will show up in the movie. If you try to print this text, it will only print the frame that's visible in the timeline of the movie. To get around this, I created a movieclip with the text divided in smaller parts. You'll see later why this is done.
