  • Issue with creation of custom layouts using SAP Help Documentation

    Hi Experts,
    My requirement is to create a home custom page layout (using web dynpro) in Composite Environment. The default options available in CE are not useful for me. I set out to make a custom layout using the following this SAP Help Documentation: [          Creating a Web Dynpro Page Layout (SAP Library - Using the Portal as a Frontend)|https://cw.sdn.sap.com/cw/docs/DOC-102846]
    I have followed the instructions and followed all the steps, yet I fail to see the application in CE. The custom page layout is not displayed neither in options and is not available any where.
    Please let me know if anybody followed these steps and have got any success.
    Thanks in advance

    Hi
    Can somebody let me know if they have implemented a customised solution of creation of page layouts using Web Dynpro - as per the steps suggested by SAP.
    Thanks in advance

  • Where is Creative Cloud written documentation?

    I can find videos but they are a poor substitute for professionally prepared documentation. Where is Adobe's documentation of Creative Cloud services?

    Hi Ted,
    Help content for the individual products can be accessed from here http://helpx.adobe.com/support.html?promoid=KAWQK#
    Go the More Products section for an overall product list. Many of the products have a PDF version of the help which can be downloaded from the product specific help page.

  • Mobile iPhone Application for SAP B1 Documentation

    SAP releases the following statement on their landing page for their customers about using iPhone App in version 8.8.  Direct copy and paste:
    I am already using SAP Business One. Are there any requirements to be able to use this app?
    You need to be running SAP Business One version 8.8 with a professional user license. Before you start using the app, make sure your SAP partner configures the mobility settings in SAP Business One.
    Where is the documentation that is the checklist for installing and getting the mobile app up and running?  You know, the usual documentation from step A to Z - go to Add-ons and do this, go to User and do this, etc.   All I can find are videos/documents that are marketing oriented.  I have the user guide "Setting Up Mobile Scenario in 8.8", but it is woefully lacking in several steps (ie, it says some fields are mandatory, but SAP does not even mention what "code" column is supposed to mean).
    Anyone else have any luck digging out the pertinent information from SAP sites which SAP should have prominently highlighted to its partners before rolling this out?  Where can I find it?
    This all seems to be a rather disconnected roll-out.
    Thanks in Advance - Zal

    Here is part of the answer - Go here:  https://websmp203.sap-ag.de/sbo-swcenter
    Until it is changed, select "Updates" (not the other areas stated in some documentation, videos, and threads) and select "SAP Business 8.8", then "B1 8.8 Integration Component", and then it can be downloaded.
    I will add more info as the process goes along, if there is anything more...
    TIA - Zal

  • Where do I read in the documentation the list of the system properties?

    Yep. Sounds stupid. But it's true. I read in all these forums where and how to set the truststore and so on but it would be beautiful to understand it my own.
    1. First I read setting the -Djavax.net.ssl.trustStore in the VM arguments.
    2. Then I find out the the -D is just for setting something like a static property.
    3. Next I want to read about the system properties. Who, what and where the Java tries to get this system property. I do not find it.
    What I find is great help in these forums and solving this kind of problems seems easy... I googled and the only place I found info about this is in a boulder.ibm.com site:
    http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/iseries/v5r4/index.jsp?topic=/rzaha/sysprop2.htm
    http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/iseries/v5r4/index.jsp?topic=/rzaha/rzahajssesysprops.htm
    I also found some info on a sun tutorial but not an official documentation. Do you know where to find it? It seems that my learning is always about finding the right place to find information and not guessing and trying.
    Thanks!!

    Thanks for your soon reply. Yeah, I found that but I really was expecting a more serious documentation.
    I have to admit that it is documented. Yes. But I didn't expect to find that in middle of a guide. But more in a reference or in a specification document. It's inside the "Customization" and in a table, yes... But it's a guide!!
    I like Java but something to worry about is the "too many - too less" documentation. Documentation is not clear enough and all the hundreds of options you have can make the programming with Java no good. It would sound like a good thing have a lot of choices and hundreds of places to look info for but I am a bit disappointed with that. It's not clear enough to find the right info.
    Anyway, thanks a lot for your help!! I will have to live with that.

  • Customizing header and footer in the printed documentation

    Hi,
    I'm using a trial version of RoboHelp 2007 and Word 2003.
    I have two question about customizing the header and footer
    of the printed documentation.
    In the printed documentation the footer repeat at the bottom
    of each page and contain page numbers, which appear left-justified
    on even-numbered pages and right-justified on odd-numbered pages.
    How can I customize the footer, that pages numbers appear
    always right-justified?
    In the printed documentation the header repeat at the top of
    each page and are blank on the first page of sections. The name of
    the manual appears on even-numbered pages, left-justified. The name
    of the root chapter appears on odd-numbered pages, right-justified.
    How can I customize the header, that
    on every page the name of the root chapter and the name oft
    the manual appears? Furhermore I want to include a picture in the
    header. How can I realise this?

    You can't from RH. See the article on my site.
    Images in the header are tricky. If you use the setting that
    I think enables that, you will also get the images in the TOC. Try
    putting a two cell table and putting the heading in one and the
    image in another.

  • Unable to Generate Printed Documentation in PDF Format

    This past week I started having a consistent error when attempting to generate a Printed Documentation layout. This error reads "Internal error encountered,  Failed to generate Printed Documentation."  Prior Printed Documentation builds on this same project completed fine. Nothing was done to the Help project between the times when this worked and when it no longer was able to create Printed Documentation.
    I receive this error even if I generate an entirely new "blank project" build, and then attempt to create a Printed Documentation build from this new blank project.  Researching this error, I see this has been a reoccuring problem with this product for some time. The few threads that list the problem as having been "fixed" provide resolution steps that have not worked in my case. Right now I am waiting for our IT Helpdesk people to re-install the Suite. Hopefully this will resolve this problem.
    Additional information on this problem - PDF Printed Documentation is failing - the HTML build works fine. If I select just a .DOC Printed Documentation output, this also works correctly. The resulting Word document looks good, although hyperlinks do not work within this Word document. I have reloaded Office 2003 as a troubleshooting effort, but this has nbot resulted in any change in symptoms.
    The entire error text is enclosed below, although several other people have also done this in past entries. The few lines that read "Warning, and then report a style issue is NOT the problem here. As stated earlier, when I do this same Printed Documentation build on an entirely new "blank project" it does not work, and the Output text in that case does not contain any such "Warnings" about Styles.

    If I select ONLY the Word DOC Output format in the Printed Documentation
    setup, the output is created without an error (output text below).  Links do work within
    this Word document (a symptom change since installing patch 8.0.2).
    When I use this Word document to create a PDF (using the Adobe PDF
    printer driver) a PDF is successfully created, however no bookmarks are
    created in the bookmarks panel and none of the links in this PDF work
    (although they are created looking like they will work, i.e., blue
    underlined text).

    Tim

  • CS4 Suite (all Windows versions) - documentation of XML and pre-configuration of components?

    With a view to packaging and deploying CS4 in Microsoft enterprise environments (ie GPO restricted desktops, mandatory user profiles, non-administrative user base, at or near minimum spec hardware) I was wondering if anyone was aware of any documentation, official or otherwise, for pre-configuration or omission of individual components within the CS4 suite in order to more specifically tailor their operation to user requirements.  Eg, such as the way Adobe provide a transform generator/editor for Acrobat in its standalone form.
    The instructions for performing silent installs with or without the more major components (such as Dreamweaver, Photoshop etc) work fine, and the Adobe CS4 Deployment Toolkit (aka AdobeUberInstaller) deals with a number of omissions in the base installer such ELUA and updates suppression.  However there are various options within the applications themselves I would like to change the defaults for at install time (eg suppress Adobe Bridge from prompting to run at startup, address Acrobat's refusal to run until another element of the suite has been run first etc), patches I would like to slipstream rather than apply retrospectively (currently Air, Indesign, Photoshop), and some elements (such as foreign language components and 64bit support) I would ideally like to omit from the source package altogether to keep the size down - 6GB+ to 500 clients is quite an ordeal!
    Web resources such as application deployment forums have allowed me to address some of the above, but I would be very interested in the feedback/experiences of this community.  I appreciate what I'm asking is somewhat vague but any crumbs of wisdom all add up...
    Many thanks in advance for any suggestions.
    Bill

    The best is to get the versions in which you have developed/tested. These can be found in MAX under Software, if it is possible provide a link to the NI ftp download URL.
    Then export the settings in MAX (for tasks/scales) if you use them and provide a simple app that loads these items into MAX.
    For RIO I'm not totally sure but I would create 'Getting started' that outlines what settings (IP/DNS etc.) to get the user started.

  • QT Pro -- Did I miss something in the documentation?

    Someone please check me on this, because I think I must be getting senile. After many years of thinking about it, I finally popped the whopping $30 for Quicktime Pro (for QTP7 on my 27" iMac Core 2 Duo, OS X 10.6.7). It installed without problem -- though it's rather disconcerting that it still looks, smells, and largely acts like QT Player 7. I had a no-fun-at-all-time trying to open video clips that wouldn't open with the In and Out selection markers, so I couldn't trim, or cut and paste, or do anything at all to edit them in a time-linear sense. I DL'd the QuickTime 7 User Guide PDF with the "Getting Started With QuickTime Pro" PDF and read it and re-read it several times, tried QT Pro help, but I couldn't find a single bit of information on why some video formats would open with the In and Out selection markers, and thus be editable, and others would not.
    After 2 solid days of knocking my thick skull against the wall, I finally had my Archimedean Eureka Moment, and realized that ALL the files that WOULD open with the In and Out selection markers were .mov files, while files I was trying to open unsuccessfully were .mpg, .mpeg, m2v, .mp2, mp3, .mp4s, and suchlike. I went back through the QuickTime 7 User Guide PDF AND QuickTime Pro Help, as well as searching here on Apple's support forum, and on other Apple/QT discussion groups, and NOWHERE could I find anything that said files had to be in .mov format to be editable with the In and Out selection markers. Can someone please point out to me the pertinent section of the documentation I must have missed, where that MOST important information is presented.
    In a Hail Mary guess, I thought that perhaps the "QuickTime MPEG-2 Playback Component for Mac OS X" might help solve my problems, though it's description didn't sound that promising: "This add-on to QuickTime or QuickTime Pro provides the ability to import and play back MPEG-2 content, including both multiplexed (also known as muxed, where the audio and video tracks are interleaved together into one track) and non-multiplexed (also known as elementary) streams." Yeah, I got that, but does it do anything ELSE in QT Pro, like give the user the ability to edit.mpeg video with the In and Out selection markers in QuickTime Pro? I could not find THAT information either, and I'm really not keen on plunking down another 20 bucks for a function as simple as playing back .mpeg files, when I have several utilities that already allow me to do that.
    What I'm using QT Pro for right now is chopping up free, non-commercial,non-copyrighted or copy-protected, legally-belonging-to-me, guitar lessons so I can break them down into small sections at a time that I can loop and learn before going on to the next section of the lesson -- very handy. So, I'm sorry, but I don't really think I'm a candidate for the thousand-dollar Final Cut Studio, or even the two-hundred dollar Final Cut Express. I'm retired, and on a fixed income, and I can only afford what I can afford.
    So PLEASE, someone tell me if I'm stuck with no choice but to convert my videos to .mov format before I can edit them in QT Pro, or have I, in my dotage, overlooked another, cost-free way, of actually using QT Pro for what I want to do, without all the monkey-motion of converting everything.
    Thanks for your time,
    Bart Brown

    I may or may not need QT Pro (a moot point, as I already have it)
    As previously indicated, hang onto it if you plan to do any layering, masking, and/or picture-in-picture video composites. It is handy for quick clip modifications not requiring use of a full video editor.
    I DO need the $20 MPEG-2 component (nickel & dime, nickel & dime, nickel & dime, nickel & dime)
    I HAVE FFMPEG X
    I HAVE MPEG Streamclip
    The Apple MPEG-2 Playback component is only needed if you plan to use MPEG-2/M2V content in QT based applications. That is, applications like QT and MPEG Streamclip which access codecs for which your system is configured. Utilities like FFmpegX, VLC, and HandBrake have their own codecs embedded within their respective applications.
    In regards to MPEG Streamclip (and AC3)...
    Rather than try to cover each individual point as you brought them up, let me summarize the situation by enumerating your options.
    1) The Apple QT MPEG-2 Playback component does not support any audio compression formats. It is a video codec only just as H.264 is a video codec. Either the audio is QT compatible or it is not. If it is not, then your best option is to convert non-compatible audio to a QT compatible compression format.
    2) If you really want to play AC3 DD5.1 audio on a Mac, the best way is to use the VLC media player and send the AC3 audio data to an external DD5.1 decoder via the VLC "passthrough" option. (I use the Logitech Z-680 for external decoding and amplification of optical digital or 6-channel analog data.)
    3) No matter what AC3 codec you install on your Mac, for it to work on the Mac, the audio will either have to be mixed down to two channels for core audio processing on the system or you will have to install an auxiliary audio card capable of outputting the AC3 decoded audio as 6 separate channels of audio which can also be handled by the core audio system software. (I use a 6-channel M-Audio card here for audio usually transcoded to either 4, 5, or 6 channels of AAC or AIFF compressed audio data.)
    4) While MPEG Streamclip only supports 2 of the 6 DD5.1 channels at a time as QT compatible audio channels at a time, the user can select which two channels are output. Most users opt for the "stereo mix" option but could just as easily select the "Front Mix", "Surround", "L/R Ch.", "Center Ch.", "LS/RS Ch.", or "LFE Ch." option. You can even make multiple passes to decode/export all 6 channels of audio and attempt to re-assemble them as separate audio tracks, 3 paired stereo tracks, or a single "surround" audio track if you have the required hardware support for playback.
    Anyway, I've DL'd my AC3, I'm buying my MPEG-2 component (which I still think is a ripoff: why leave out ONE critical component -- when you've included dozens of others for free -- and make your customers pay, AGAIN, to make the $30 software you just paid for from the same company into a $50 software package so it will do what you want it to do? To me, that dog don't hunt).
    As has been stated many times, QT is based on the idea that multiple parallel tracks of data (up to 99) can all be played back synchronously using a single external clock. Multiplexed MPEG-1/2 content, on the other hand, employs spatial synchronization—two different technological approaches. By interspersing blocks of audio data between blocks of video data in a single data stream, one form of data is prevented from "overrunning" the other. AVI works in a similar manner using parallel tracks of data. Only in this case, frames of audio data are interleaved with frames video data to maintain synchronization. The main difference here, however, is that, as far as QT is concerned, the frames are only a half frame "out of sync" while the MPEG-1/2 data is "out of sync" by an undetermined degree. Since QT cannot equate a specific time reference to corresponding frames of audio and video content, it cannot properly convert or edit this content. In short, the MPEG-2 Playback component is not a "critical" component since QT was never designed to use it and only added it in response to user requests. As to pricing, If you wish to perform transcoding of WMV content, the Flip4Mac codecs alone run from $29 to $179 depending on what level of capabilities you require. (And you still need the QT 7 Pro key.) Your main problem here is that you are editing in an QT non-compatible compression format designed for content delivery rather using a QT compatible, edit specific compression format. I assume this was a result of have the Tape-DVD recording device on hand and decided this approach was easier than going the more conventional route of converting to DV using a DAC device. As a result, your data is probably compressed to about 1/5 the data rate/size of a DV file. Unfortunately, you will likely have to pay a price in terms of quality and work flow problems. Still, I suspect you would be less than willing to go back to square one with your tapes and re-digitize the content a second time.
    What MORE am I going to need to accomplish that, do you know?
    Whether you are editing a "muxed" MPEG-2/AC3 file or a DVD title consisting of one or more VOB files (also containing "muxed" MPEG-2/AC3 content), the work flow is essentially the same. Simply drop all of the non-zero VOB files in the title set to the MPEG Streamclip work window, fix the timecode breaks, and start your editing as if you were working with a single MPEG file.
    NOTE: unless it has changed, FFmpegX may still be limited to 2 GB MPEG file sizes for processing while I believe MPEG Streamclip has a 4 GB MPEG file size limit. I assume this may not be a problem for you if you are working with "snippets" but could be a problem if edits are merged to overly long files. In either case, the VOBs are encoded to files of 1 GB or less and should not present a problem even if you are working with a multi-VOB title set.
    why do I have to go through the kludge of recording tape to DVD, then sneaker-netting the DVD to my iMac to get the digitized video on my computer?
    You don't. You could have used any analog-to-digital converter device. For instance, many old Hi-8/Digital-8 camcorders and most recent DV camcorders have the ability to convert your VHS output directly to DV content which can be captured in any video editing (e.g., iMovie), dedicated capture (e.g., the free Vidi app) or even QT X/QT 7 Pro applications. The content is digitized in real time to your computer. Files would probably be 4-5 times larger than your DVD or MPEG files, but the resulting quality (depending on the original tape quality) might be better and the content is fully compatible will all QT apps (assuming you don't somehow corrupt the files).
    On the other hand, if I already had all of those DVDs on hand, I might consider using HandBrake to convert them to H.264/AAC files and then simply trim and merge the resulting files for distribution. I.e., Handbrake includes its own embedded codecs and is capable of batch processing files while you sleep or are busily engaged in other activities. And, the resulting files are editable at the frame level in the QT 7 Pro which you already have.
    Why is it that Mini Port on the new iMacs is unable to take direct HDMI INPUT from a digital video source at 1080p natively? It's pretty depressing A) having, once again, to buy some $130 adapter to even GET digital input into the 27" iMac, and B) even if you CAN get digital input, being limited to 720p (Belkin AV360™ Mini DisplayPort Converter for 27" iMac. Belkin's description: Accepts full 1080p signal, provides 720p to iMac) on a 2560 x 1440 display.
    You would have to ask Apple. My guess is that they don't want to get involved in HDCP support issues and besides, previously this port has been limited to output only and is still described as such on the Apple Store Tech Specs web page.
    As I'm nearly 63 years old, I'm absolutely gobsmacked at the progress in computer technology from my first Sinclair Z80 to my Amiga 1000 to my first Mac -- a IIci ($5000!), to now, but I thought the whole idea was to make things easier.
    Still have a few years on you. (Let's just say I'm on the high side of 65 and leave it at that.) I started with the Polymorphic 88, System 16 (S-100, 8080 processor with all of 16 K of memory) and worked my way through an Apple //, Mac 128K, Mac IIci, 8500AV, two G4s, a PPC G5, and am now on my first Intel Core Duo laptop. (The last five are still "in service" and the Poly-88 is somewhere in the storage shed.) They say that a program expands to occupy the memory available to contain it. In a similar manner, as things become "easier," we tend to expand our horizons into more difficult fields of endeavor.
    Do you know of a good place to start to try to learn about this stuff?
    Normally in a case like this, I would recommend you contact your local Mac/Apple User Group and see if they have an active Video SIG. By discussing your goals and available hardware/software, they may be able to find a work flow that meets your needs, minimizes your investment in time and effort, and avoids the need to purchase anything additional. For instance, is it your intention to post media on the internet, archive it for future editing purposes, distribute it to immediate friends and/or relatives, what is more important—time or quality of your content, what do you mean by "clean up," etc? These are likely the questions that will determine which work flows best suits your needs and in which order they should be applied.

  • Where is the documentation for Jabber for iPhone and iPad 9.6.1 ???

    Jabber for iPhone and iPad 9.6.1 was released on Tuesday Jan 14th 2014.
    I see the 4 .cop files on cisco.com  in a zip file copfiles_iOS96.zip. What is the difference between the 4 files?  Application in the AppStore on my iPad, but there are no release notes, or documentation on cisco.com.  All I can assume is that these .sgn files need to go on my Publisher/TFTP server?
    Nothing here about a 9.6.1

    I only see two COP files, one for iPhone (TCT) and one for iPad (TAB). These are required on older (can't believe I'm calling 8.6 older already!) builds of CUCM.

  • Custom MBean - Attribute Display Order & Documentation

    Hi All,
    I've implemented custom security providers for one of our customers. All Providers are working very well. However I've problems about displaying attributes of my MBeans in WLS console. Attributes of my custom mbean definitions are displayed in console in unsorted manner. They're not sorted as I put them in mbean definition file and as I know there is also no display order attribute specified in "commo.dtd". I also checked [MBean Definition|http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E15523_01/web.1111/e13718/mdf_ref.htm#i1035144] . Is there a way to specify display order of managed bean attributes that placed in mbean definition file ?
    My second question is about generating description to display WLS console. I first tried to use "Description" attribute of MBeanAttribute element. It didn't worked. So I checked out out-of-the-box security providers to how they've done this before. I created "-doc.xml" files that uses "commodoc.dtd" schema and my attribute element's "Description" attributes as "See ...-doc.xml" in mbean definition file. It also didn't worked. I need to find a way to put my descriptions in WLS console . Any help would be appreciated.
    I'm including sample mbean definition, mbean documentation definition and my mbean generation ant comments. By the way I'm trying all this by using WLS 10.3.2 environment with Sun JDK 1.6.0.18.
    Thanks in advance.

    Yes the description attribute doesnt work anymore the way it used to work in prev versions.
    On further research it was found that the Mbean required for generating description was missing.
    A bug was filed with the engineering the engineering team. I am not sure what happend after that.
    Let me try to find out.
    If the mean while if any one of u guys have a support contract, you can go ahead and open a case with Oracle.
    As for the order on display in the console, it shows in the order in which its defined in the MDF, m not sure why its behaving differently in your case.

  • HT3131 Why doesn't Apple mention using the Display control panel's "Arrange" feature to move the menu from the Macbook's display to the EXTERNAL display? THAT'S the real answer to make Clamshell mode work, but it's not mentioned in any Apple documentation

    After a recent OS update, Clamshell mode quit working. I couldn't find any Apple documentation
    that would help. So many people were stabbing around in the dark, until I finally found the following information
    that is lacking from any Apple documentation that I've been able to find.
    Here's what I found to be the most helpful:
    Forcing a MacBook to use the External Monitor:
    I tried about everything: Rebooting, switching off completely, removing and inserting the Thunderbolt->HDMI adapter etc.
    The only thing that finally worked was the following:
    1. Take it out of the dock and connect to Power and HDMI to the TV.
    Shut down the Mac. Turn it on and close the lid. It will now boot up on the external screen.
    Log onto the Mac, and put it in sleep mode (Option-Command-Eject).
    Put it back into the dock and wake it up with the spacebar.
    It should be OK now... until the next update...
    Note: One indication that you’re going to have extreme trouble with this is when (occasionally and without reason) the Mirroring Options icon shows up on the top icon bar.
    Other useful commands:
    “Command + F1” puts PC in Two-Screen MIRROR mode.
    If it’s REALLY being stubborn, do the following (Clamshell Must be open
    to see the arrangement tab.):
    In System Preferences > Display on the MacBook screen there should be an Arrangement tab when you have the MacBook hooked up to the TV and both screens working. When you click the Arrangement tab do you see two monitors side by side? One of them will have a Menu Bar at the top. Just click on the Menu Bar and drag it to the second monitor (Yes, I know, it’s hard to grab ahold of it...) That will make your EXTERNAL monitor your main screen.
    You can now use your MacBook in Clamshell Mode with a wired or Bluetooth keyboard and mouse.  http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3131 When you disconnect from the TV, make sure it’s asleep (Option+Command+Eject buttons) or your Menu Bar will automatically change back to the MacBook.

    Since you don’t allow emails any more – I suspect because of the numerous complaints with your service and the way you treat people that you don’t want documented, I am calling and I want this call recorded for future reference.
    I have been a long time faithful customer of vzw and although the past year I have been late on payments many times and really couldn’t afford your exorbitant prices for services lots of other companies offer sometimes three times cheaper than what you charge, I have hung in there trying my best to meet my obligations.
    This month has been no exception. You don’t know the background; the whole story of people’s lives. I know you could care less because all you care about is the profit-the money that comes in.
    I was told when I agreed to pay my bill on the third per the recorded message that I had 14 days to pay…you cut me off anyway. The phones are not the tissue; your suspending my service means I cannot work. I may lose my job…how do you justify that? In any case? The least you could do would be to keep 4986 on and cut the phones off. But no. You refuse to compromise and meet the basic needs of your customer. What does that say about your company? I tried to call back on three separate occasions to tell you I couldn’t pay because of unexpected expenses but couldn’t get out of the automated system…sadly couldn’t get to a real person which also speaks volumes to me.
    All this tells me this is a company I don’t wish to be affiliated with any more. As soon as I can, I will discontinue service with you…I know you could care less. I will honor the remaining portion of the contract but that’s it. You don’t deserve my business. I am a good, hardworking person who, at the sacrifice of myself and my needs, always pays her bills…albeit late at times. I realize others tell you stories and lies to justify themselves. That’s not me. If you knew what I had been through the last 7 yrs you would marvel that I am  still on my feet…don’t judge too quickly. You could be wrong…and in my eyes you are by doing this to me.
    God will see us through this extremely scary time of that I have no doubt. No thanks to your company and lack of understanding and mercy. I am doing the best I can. Sadly you are not.
    See I have choices. MANY choices of providers for services you offer. I don’t have to be treated like this. I don’t have to succumb to your coldness and callousness. I intend to choose better (and cheaper). If your company doesn’t get the “people factor” back you will be sorry.

    Problem here is you admit you cannot afford the service.
    And you want to blame Verizon for losing a job because you have no cell phone.
    If your job depends on that phone I would pay it on time every time if you need a job to pay your bill.
    No other service is going to treat you any different. And if you cannot afford Verizon's monthly invoice how are you going to afford new devices, activation fees, possible security deposits on any other cellular carrier? You can't.
    Also if you made an arraignment to pay and then decide you cannot do so, why should Verizon extend you service or credit, or why is it you want to use the service and data and not pay for it as agreed.
    Get a prepay phone. Its evident the cost is too high for you to afford on post pay.
    Good Luck

  • PDF or HTML for mobile Technical Documentation and Newsletters

    Hi,
    I've been reviewing the pros and cons for PDF and HTML for mobile technical documentation and newsletters and wanted to get your honest thoughts on this.
    Here's the scenario:
    I need to create  mobile technical documenation and newsletters that are interactive, i.e. video, commenting/annotating, links, forms, etc.
    Given how the mobile publishing market is rapidly evolving, what is the most practical format, (with minimum format issues) to use for both short term and long term?  PDF or HTML?  Why?
    Based on your choice, which format would you use for non-interactive documents that offers the most creative options and usability?  Why?
    Paul

    Hyper Text Markup Language ( HTML ) is going to work better.  Mainly because the way mobile is setup, the interface has to conform to the device and with the other elements coded into the interface, HTML is far better.  You keep referring to usability, so even in non-interactive scenarios in mobile documentation, you're better off using HTML.
