Drawings in flash dont show when i publish swf

hi guys.
well yeah when i draw in flash and i preview it as flash the drawings show but when i publish it they dont.
ne reasons why this would happen.
cause say i have a bmp image in the background set on layer 1 and then i draw something in layer 2 using the flash drawing tools it dosent show, when i preview the movie in flash it shows but not when i publish it.
but the weird thing is it will always show up if i have nothing else besides the drawing it self on the stage.

ne ideas how i can fix this problem cause id draw more in flash if i new why it does this.
and yes i make it that they are arranged so the drawing is in front and the its layer is above all the others i want it to be. so why does this happen.
thanks hope u know whats wrong.
