It was too hard to guess in this context. The job involved multiple duties,
and potentially multiple Adobe tools. He didn't know which Adobe tool was
used for what, or even what he was talking about. He was clearly used to
expressing things in vague terms, and having magic happen.

I failed to convince him of my efficacy as a magican, and I guess that's that.
Better luck next time.
