But so far no one has responded, and this might actually be a Flash issue, I'm not sure (or at least it's more likely someone reading the Flash forums would have experienced this problem). Here's my post from there:
I'm creating an interactive book in Flash, but creating the basic content in InDesign and exporting each page as an swf then importing them into Flash.
Well the problem I'm having, as the title of my post says, when I import the swf into Flash, frame 1 is blank and frame 2 has the content. I was hoping to avoid having to continually delete that first frame every time I have to make changes or corrections to a page.
Any thoughts? I've hunted around and it seems like no one with access to the internet is having this issue.
This is being done using InDesign and Flash CS5 on Windows 7.
I guess nobody at CreativeCow has had this issue either. Very strange, because this is a great method for getting designed pages into Flash, but this blank frame thing seems to be the default behavior for some unknown reason.
