Subject: RE: [soa-rm-editors] First pass

I don't want this turning ugly but I want to be frank and I may be a bit
- if I'm proof reading, and juggling different possible wordings around, I
- I wasted an hour yesterday evening trying out new wordings, reviewing and
discarding, within PDF, and gave up. That free time only came about because
I got locked out of a conf call - my time is getting precious and I don't
want to start learning new tricks;
- the PDF hammer doesn't mean every problem is a nail: PDF (I use - and like
- the full professional edition with all bells and whistles, I don't need
comments enabled) is not WYSIWYG when in text touch-up mode: it is only used
for pre-print re-touches, not editing. I am a writer not a software
- version management and integrity is a bit on the fly, but KAVI does help a
little. Locking down with pdf is not the answer;
- the OASIS process requires us to release word-processable versions of any
draft spec. when it goes for review, but we can't use one within an internal
editing cycle?;
- the insistence on PDF rather than word or openoffice is getting a bit too
PC for my liking. It may pay your tab Matt, but someone pays mine too, to
write and edit, not mess around with a tool that does NOT do the job I need
done and - if there really are some tricks I've missed in editing in
Acrobat7 -  without a new learning curve to worry about.

The alternative is that I send you a scanned copy of my hand-annotated
notes, like in the good old days...!

I do not want to be the guy who holds up the review cycle. It could have
been a simple job and we're making a meal out of it.
