I seem to have offended a number of you with my comments about PDFs. I
apologize for stirring things up or making people angry. I had no idea my
comments would be controversial in the least. I thought fuzzy PDFs was
something we all agreed on. So much of this list is dedicated to
commiserating on the appearance of and conversion problems with PDFs that I
didn't think I was saying anything out of the ordinary.
My comments were not meant as a critique of anyone's work or suggestions.
That was so far from my mind, I didn't even realize that they could have
been taken that way until now. Instead, I was expressing the limitations of
a tool that we all use. One that my team struggled with for a long time.
Many people on this board agree that Word is limited for long documents
because it wasn't designed for them. We make it jump through hoops with a
lot of practice, but that doesn't change its basic nature. I was merely
pointing out a similar situation with Adobe PDFs.
Thank you for the PDF, Christine.
