single element swf

Hi all … any progress or solution to importing a swf and being able to combine all the elements (26 from this import) into a single, editable, no white background into a single element without going through the process of copy/paste each cell from each element into a single cell? have tried exporting the swf file out as an alpha mode .mov then importing it back in,but there is a invisible stroke around each character that when played comes back like it is outlined in a heavy black line. If i export the swf file out as a plain .mov, i get a full black background … any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated… thanks in advance, D
