Jeff has a very outspoken, direct, honest writing style that often seems to rub some people the wrong way (me included). However, he is very generous in sharing his vast knowledge with the rest of us, and for that I am extremely grateful. I have learned a huge amount from him. I also think he has been deliberately toning down his rhetoric lately, probably at Michael's request. And when he says,
I wasn't trying to be offensive...when I'm trying to be offensive, I leave no doubt of my intentions...I was being conversational.
, you can bet he's telling it exactly
like it is.
That being said, thanks to Jeff, I now understand why printing in CS3 is "broke," in my view and for many others who are used to the way PS has always behaved in Windows. And, yes, the main fault seems to be Microsoft's messing up Vista.
For me, upgrading to CS3 or Vista will have to wait until somebody (Adobe, Microsoft, Epson, Hackers Anonymous, ...) comes up with a way (1) to set an application-default printer that is sticky at least through a PS session, and (2) to work around the stupid "read-only" margins so that a print can be centered easily. Until those (mandatory, for me) features are there, CS3 and Vista are dead in the water as far as I am concerned.
