1. Thanks for the complements on the review.
2. Adobe Distiller - is it a free download that can convert a file into a PDF doc? I looked around the Adobe web site and only saw a Adobe Acrobat Distiller Server.
3. I do not have Acrobat Reader on my Pocket PC anymore, but if I remember correct, the program was rather large and ran slowly.
RepliGo may cost a pretty penny, but it is easy to use and suitable for users of any level of expertise.
No it's not a free down load I just happen to have a copy that I use.
Adobe reader on the PPC is very slooooowwww!!
I just for Shi#@ and giggles I may download this just to play around with. I have a Pantone color chart that is so big Adobe will barely open it
and once it does you can forget about zooming in on anything!!
I've been using it for a few months and my biggest issues are:
• No landscape mode
• No bookmark ability. I use this app to read long documents I print from the web or from PDF files. It is much better for that than Adobe Reader, but I have to make mental notes to remember where I left off if I read in different sittings
• I despise the Office integration. I finally turned all of that off. Took forever to find the macros, template modifications, toolbars, etc. I recommend you install WITHOUT office integration. Just use File|Print and select the Repligo printer.
You can print thought via IR and I suspect bluetooth.
It is a great product though, other than my personal gripes listed above. Highly recommend it.
• Landscape mode will happen in the not too distant future.
• Bookmarks are a highly requested feature and I envision us adding this feature to the product as well.
• RepliGo does function well without Office Integration. However, your mileage may vary a little in MS Word without it since RepliGo uses Office Integration to help it understand MS Word documents better. This allows RepliGo to more accurately reflow the document on your Pocket PC, amonst other things.
Ah, I should have realized ActiveSync was the limitation. No biggie, I just move the files manually once they're sync'ed over. Long-term, it would be neat to come up with a slicker way.
As for desktop viewer, it would enable RGOs to be treated as first-class cross-platform documents, much like PDFs. That is, I could have a document on my Pocket PC and email it to somebody, who could then open it without issues. Again, it's not critical, as I can also keep a PDF on hand, but it would be nice.
That's the second time today I've heard about a desktop viewer. Anybody else interested in this?
A quick viewer would be nice. I currently have 27 .RGO files on my machine and am not sure what is in some of them without looking it up on my Pocket PC. Text reflowing and those features wouldn't be important to me. A quick viewer then get back to focusing on new things for the Pocket PC, like landscape, bookmarks, etc.
BTW, minor bug. Are you aware that the folder list dropdown on the conversion utility is missing a scroll bar? You can move up and down with the arrow keys, but not the mouse.
