You're absolutely right. It IS ridiculious. It's absolutely unnecessary
and not very good standard operating procedure, that all said, I need to now
do my timesheet even though I get paid by salary and not by the hour.

Sometimes, what we think is useless is oftentimes overruled by inept and
old-fashioned management types who just want to do things their way
regardless of how much extra effort it entails.

The division I'm referring to, has 2 people on staff that take the manuals
we produce and "customize" them for their use. Oftentimes, this leads to
problems in keeping things uniform, but no amount of hollering is going to
make one bit of difference.

That's very nice but:

1) Either editing the manual is permitted
2) Or editing the manual is not permitted

If 1), then distribute the source files, don't make people jump through PDF
editing hoops. To do the latter is ridiculous, who are you fooling? To do
the latter is a waste of company resources, and deliberately so.

If 2) then distribute the PDF with instructions that none may edit it.

Cheers,

Sean
