Re: Printing Notes/Documents
Do you think it would be feasible to fix MetaLink so that it would be possible to print documents directly from the document? If viewing a note or document and the user wants to print said item, don't you think it is pretty obvious that only the note or document should be printed? For example, many well-designed Web sites on planet Earth follow basic design principles/good practices and make their web pages user-friendly - and one such user-friendly aspect is the ability for the user to print the contents of the main frame. In constrast, users of MetaLink, if using IE's print button, not only get the relevant document, but all of the other frames. That is pretty dumb for you to allow that. It takes a bit of sophistication on the user's part to get into the print preview and then into the "Only the selected frame" option. I use and surf the web a lot. I can't think of any other site that has the same stupid, poorly designed, horrendous user interface that MetaLink has. The more and more I use have to use MetaLink, the more and more I'm leaning towards pushing my company to SQL Server.
