Guess who had to add a metric fuck ton of footnotes manually? CC does not honor any formatting and doing it manually sometimes doesn't work either. I get what you're saying but they are a statewide law group that hold conferences for CLEs. They are calling them newsletters, but they are handfuls of essays from various contributors. I deal with a lot of these groups all over the country and they simply add PDF newsletters to their website and you need to be a member to access them. Pilcrows and section signs are a must. Formatting is HUGE. One of the contributors footnotes are longer than her article. So while you're working, you're manually adding footnotes in CC and have to scroll an hour to the top and change the font and superscript, or whatever, and scroll all the way back down and try to remember where you left off and do the same for the footnotes. It's not meant for this type of work. I set up the first one and they are supposed to use my template for future newsletters. I KNOW it's going to turn into me doing it because it's a pain in the ass. I asked about a very general newsletter with links to the "articles," but they said no. They want it all there. Dumb. My plan is to charge them double the time if they are going to have me set up future newsletters. If it takes me 3 hours, I will charge for 6.

Quote from: Possum on August 26, 2021, 01:37:43 PMBoy you guys are lucky. I never had any say in what customers were charged, and ours rarely paid for anything. In the years I worked on tee shirt designs they all paid the same flat rate, whether fixing their art took 20 minutes or 4 hours.
