2. Basically, as a courtesy they would grant an additional very short delay,

But they object to any longer delays because they've had five months to prepare and have already pushed dates back. He's basically saying quit the games and let's get on with it.

13. Why not provide a 2 sentence summary like someone else was kind enough to do?

Not hard to do either.

15. .


Use the mouse wheel to enlarge the image. You have to hold down the control key on FireFox.

To enlarge fonts outside of images, use ctrl-+ (control-plus_sign). It is actually ctrl-= (control-equals) because you don't have to hold down the shift key, but "plus" is easier to remember.

I'm sorry, my one sentence summary on enlarging images was too terse and not complete due to limitations on the length of post title lines.

especially when they see it's not even live type. And spare

me the instructions on how to enlarge unsharp jpegs. I have a

Mac and all I have to do is hit the command key and the plus key

at the same but then who wants to bother as long, legal-

size pages don't fit on a screen without a lot of scrolling?

You just go to the next post because you know someone else will

post what happened in a couple of easily read sentences.

19. Since you are concerned about readability


It would be good for readability to:

1) Not artificially insert line breaks unless you are making numbered or unnumbered points. It interferes with the automated formatting that almost all devices and especially the DU forum uses. It is best to not assume that everyone has the same width screen as you do.

1b) In particular, when a person is using large fonts for readability, artificial line breaks and extra blank lines make broken lines look like very confusing paragraphs.

2) Not place a blank line between each artificially broken line.

3) Not depend on spell-check because a spelling can be incorrect in context despite being a "legal" spelling. Note the difference between "legalize" and "legalese".

Last edited Wed Aug 1, 2018, 12:08 PM - Edit history (2)

docs are the opposite proportion of computer screens. Not easy

to read without a lot of scrolling, and if you're going to use jpegs

try the sharp/unsharp mask Photoshop feature to sharpen the

image for better readability.

Also, I add spacing between lines for the same reason, as graph

after graph of unleaded copy is hard on the eyes of some

readers.

21. Your double spacing does NOT work. Reference.


https://practicaltypography.com/line-spacing.html

Dou­ble-spac­ing be­came the de­fault {on typewriters} be­cause sin­gle-spaced type­writ­ten text is dense and hard to read. But dou­ble-spac­ing is still looser than optimal.

For most text, the op­ti­mal line spac­ing is be­tween 120% and 145% of the point size. Most word proces­sors, as well as CSS {web text}, let you de­fine line spac­ing as a mul­ti­ple. Or you can do the math—mul­ti­ply your point size by the per­cent­age.


If you care for your readers' readability you will stop double spacing and stop artificial line breaking. You will let the web sites (like DU) take care of it in their CSS. You will not assume that readers are reading at your font magnification or your device width.

Your double spacing reduces readability and so does your artificial line breaking.

If you care about your readers you will pay attention to the research on the issue.

Note: It's "sharpen", not "sharpened". Your double spacing is making it harder for yourself, harder for you to catch your "typos" / spelling errors.

22. You have your preferences, I have mine. As far as "sharpen" v "sharpened"...

thanks for that also. But you can sharpen jpegs with that Photoshop feature.

23. It's your English usage in the post that was faulty. Your preference is failing you.


Your use of the Photoshop term is not at fault.

You wrote (before you walked it back on edit):
"As far as "sharpen" v "sharpened", I see... that you're unfamiliar with Photoshop terms.

Do not state your assumptions about the other participant as if they are fact. It is a cheap debating technique that fails. I use Photoshop or Lightroom or GIMP or other post-processing just about daily.

Your English usage was "try the {...} feature to sharpened the image", which is not good English at all.

Your preference is not helping even you, with your own proofreading. You'd be well advised to change your "preference" based on the reality that research reveals.

24. Thank you again for the typo correction. I appreciate it. You however ignored my critiques...

Last edited Wed Aug 1, 2018, 03:51 PM - Edit history (1)

about legal-sized docs being proportionally vertical and not ideal for horizontally-

oriented computer screens without a lot of scrolling, but that's okay. Also,

Photoshop is your friend for sharpening images.

We can both learn something from these exchanges.

Have a good day.

16. Some people, myself included, have a hard time decoding "legalese" like this

So, appreciation to those who expanded upon it.

3. One of the things I've always disliked about our legal system

is that delay upon delay is completely common. There is zero sense of urgency on the part of almost anyone in the system to get things accomplished in a timely manner. But boy, you should watch an attorney, or worse yet a judge, react when a flight they're taking is delayed for thirty minutes.

I wish I were clever enough to write a piece entitled If (something else) operated like the legal system.

5. Delay is an all too common abuse

another is 'abuse of process'. Can be greatly abused - difficult to mount an effective attack on 'abuse of process' in court.

14. Someone clever wrote about how awful legal delays are, but it was

about the English court system in the 19th century: Bleak House, my favorite Charles Dickens novel.
