I'm sure everyone knows how terrible the virtual printers for all Tablet note taking software is about resolution - As far as I know there is no way to import a PDF, say, into Journal, One Note, or Gobinder without it looking like its been xeroxed 15 times. This is especially bad when you work with mathematical formulas that require fine resolution to make out details.
My question is, who is responsible for this and will it be fixed? Is it a Tablet PC OS issue? It's hard to believe these apps all bungled the virtual printing individually. Why hasn't this been fixed? Is it being worked on at least? Is MS aware there's an issue?
Now for my little rant (feel free to skip unless you work for MS):
On a larger scale this is indicative of the problems with Tablets. I love the concept but the execution is ridiculously buggy. There's already been a SP for Tablet PC edition and this issue, the TIP memory leak issue, and a host of other small but noticeable bugs are still unfixed. Weird TIP behavior, other memory leaks in ink, you name it- see my other posts if you don't know what I mean. Not to mention MS has fewer vendors and more control over the platform than on normal windows. Is it asking too much for basic TPC functions to work properly? Should the only convenient way to mark up a PDF document this late in the tablet platform lifecycle be PDF Annotator, a program that is still essentially a beta and doesn't even support all PDFs properly? I'm not bashing PDF Annotator, which is a new and promising product. I'm just flabbergasted that TPC's have been around for 3 years now and can't properly do the first thing it's being marketed for-marking up notes! And people wonder why it's taking so damn long for them to become mainstream?
Sorry, had to get that off my chest.
