Printing Problem

I just want to let people know about something that had me tearing my hair out.
I have a web page that consists of 3 swf files. It is a photo gallery.
The first swf is the background loaded on level 0.
A frame action loads the thumbnail swf into level 1
Clicking on the thumbnail loads the larger image on level 2. This last movie has a print button which will print just the image in the movie on level 2. Problem was it kept printing the background from the first movie. I realised after much anguish that all I had to do was change the 1st movie’s background to white and just draw a box the same colour. Sounds easy reading it now but it was not fun.
