I've been tasked with updating a very poorly constructed, "house of cards"
InDesign file for a client. It's a 150-pp., multi-chapter, single-threaded
POS that doesn't even use styles. True to form, it mysteriously repaginates
itself anytime I even think about it.

I do plan on breaking it up into separate chapters and then booking the
thing before turning it back over to the client on Monday.

However, for certain the client (an impossible-to-please PM) won't
understand why I did this, nor will her trusted ID genius who initially set
this up for them.

This is a client I intend to fire ASAP, but need to cover my bases given
the rocky relationship. My plan is to provide a perfect PDF (it's in the
can) version first along with a document liability waiver that indemnifies
me when their genius blows the thing up again. Only upon receipt of the
signed waiver do I intend to hand over the INDD file.

1) Do any of you see any flaws in this plan, and;

2) Might you have a sample waiver document?

Thanks very much

Chris Morton
