Client: I can’t see Pad If, No InDesign.
At first, I thought English might have not been this client’s native language, so I responded the best I could without being offensive.
Me: I’m sorry, how would you need the files? InDesign isn’t required for anything I send you.
Client: All I’ve gotten is Pad If, I can’t see those without InDesign. Send me the original file, not Pad if.
Me: Um, the original file is InDesign, but I can send you a PDF…oh. I get it now. You meant PDF. You can see PDFs without InDesign, it’s a pretty universal format.
Client: I don’t have an iPad either. Just don’t send me any Pads.
