Inserting External Documents as FlashPaper

Contribute 3 includes the ability to convert any document that can be printed into a Macromedia Flash file, and to place that file into a Contribute draft page. That Flash file can be displayed by any Web browser that has the free Flash Player; Macromedia claims that more than 98% of Internet users have the Flash Player.

FlashPaper documents are converted into the Flash file format using a printer driver called the FlashPaper Printer that is installed when you install Contribute 3 for Windows or Macintosh. On Windows, the FlashPaper Printer places the content of the document inside a simple document viewer interface, then hands the completed FlashPaper document back to Contribute, which inserts it into the web page. On Macintosh, you must first print the document as FlashPaper, then insert the Flash file as a separate step in Contribute. The FlashPaper document can then be aligned and resized within the Contribute draft page as you would any other graphic image. Since it is Flash, it can be resized without a loss of quality.
