    Re: How do ya'all (you all) receive PDF proof approvals ... Zoran, Peter, it's funny you should mention that (about Acrobat versions and updating)... I just received an email that the client cannot open the PDF file I sent yesterday. His business partner can on her machine, but he cannot. He...

    How do ya'all (you all) receive PDF proof approvals ...

    Re: How do ya'all (you all) receive PDF proof approvals ... Well, it's been my experience that A LOT of these people don't even realize they are looking at it WITHOUT overprint preview. I actually have to answer more questions from people that use Acrobat Professional than those who use just...

    Ready to get OUT of the business ...

    Re: Ready to get OUT of the business ... HA! ... 're-flight' ... I gotta use that one ... What I used to LOVE is the 'deer in the headlights' look I would get when a certain salesperson would ask me to explain to her what's wrong with the file, so SHE can go back and tell her client. I'd get...

    Ready to get OUT of the business ...

    Re: Ready to get OUT of the business ... FIrst of all ... this 'attitude' never reaches the client.

    Ready to get OUT of the business ...

    Re: Ready to get OUT of the business ... I appreciate what all of you are saying but, thru my entire career up to today, the major concern with all of my employers has been 'quality, quality, quality'.
