AndyM... going back to your advice on using tabs instead of tables. How would one format text so each "cell" could have multiline text in it? I dont see how tabs allow you to do this.By using the correct tool - a table-kfitting (June 03, 2010, 02:11 PM)
MS Should be the ones reimbursing because it's MS giving the purchaser the right to return the software under MS's own EULA. You can't force a liability on a third party just by telling people to ask them for moneyI don't understand how Dell are responsible for the refund. It's MS's EULA, not theirs.
Unless Dell have separately agreed to underwrite the cost of the returns with MS.-katykaty (March 22, 2010, 03:37 PM)
The EULA explicitly says "return it to the retailer". Dell sold the copy of Windows why should MS reimburse you directly? If they did then Dell would keep the money they received for the sale and MS would cough up the refund - that would not make any sense.-Carol Haynes (March 22, 2010, 05:36 PM)
I'm not being deliberately stupid here, honestly But again, so what is the problem exactly? Is it that you have to spend x minutes longer than necessary sending the mail in several parts, is it that the emails take y minutes longer to reach their destinations waiting for the security team to release the oversized attachment, is it that you have to pay $/£/€/ z more in internet bandwidth? You say that these are causing you PITA - just how does that P manifest itself?What problems do these bloated pdfs cause you?If you work with 1000's of them, they hog disc space. More frustratingly, though, if you need to e-mail them to others, you can quickly run into attachment size limits-katykaty (November 10, 2009, 04:35 PM)-Darwin (November 10, 2009, 04:40 PM)
hit the nail on the head there, we have to distribute them to several different places via email, so size is an issue...
quite apart from that the bloat just is ridiculous - why should anyone have to work with a 10M version of a 2M word document-Target (November 10, 2009, 04:52 PM)
