Tech Note: Can't Print an Empty Document Errors
PrintOMatic Lite MX Xtra, PrintOMatic Lite Xtra 1.6.5, PrintOMatic MX Xtra, PrintOMatic Xtra 1.6.5
Mac OS 9
Symptom:When trying to print a sprite using the syntax:
print sprite XPrintOMatic responds with an error: "Can’t print an empty document."
Solution:There is a Lingo bug in the Macintosh version of Director 7 and later that prevents this syntax from working. Instead, use the syntax:
print the member of sprite X
Another problem could be that you are trying to print a type of cast member that is not printable. PrintOMatic and PrintOMatic Lite can print Text, Rich Text, and bitmap cast members. Other types of members must be screen-captured from the Stage using the drawStagePicture command in the full version of PrintOMatic.
