address this same fix in updates to current drivers for both XP, Vista _AND_ OS X...
There's only so much an application can and should do and in both this issue and the default printer issue, I honestly feel that Photoshop is doing the correct and only legit thing...following the API's of the OS. I also think it would HELP Adobe if we, as users DID complain to the correct people-Apple, MSFT & Epson. Of the 3, the most likely to listen would be Epson.
I can understand the centering issue being caused by a change in Vista's API. But I don't see how letting Photoshop remember a printer would violate any APIs. In fact, Dave the engineer mentioned only that they were "transitioning" from "per session settings" to "per document settings" -- nothing about any requirements in Vista.
In my world, most people don't have a dedicated Photoshop computer with a default Photo printer. They have one computer with a "Default" printer and a "Photo" printer. The "Default" printer is used for letters, recipes, online receipts -- because you don't want to use the $1/ML photo ink for that stuff.
We use the "Photo" printer with -- Photoshop! It sure would be nice if Photoshop could remember that (like it used to). Instead, with CS3, I have to redo the printer settings: Every. Single. Time.
As an Adobe customer and user, who do I complain to about this? Do I call Epson and tell them that Photoshop now won't remember my printer? Do I call Microsoft?
I'm sorry, Jeff, but I'm putting this one on Adobe.
What frustrates me the most is that Adobe made fundamental changes to the printing behavior of Photoshop CS3. They had to know that it would break the printing workflow of a large number of passionate users. But they said nothing about it, leaving us to bang our heads against the wall trying to figure out what going on.
I'm frustrated and disappointed.
