"Lets insist that companies redo all their documents to exactly fit a non-standard screen size used by less than 10% of the intended audience, when the existing format we use is useful for EVERYONE.
All because it doesn't fit your screen EXACTLY"
Yep, that makes PERFECT SENSE.
Let's not get nasty and instead think about this for a second. Kindle, Nook and IPad don't have standard screen sizes but e-books can fit them all.
The joy of digital print is they can scale to the screen. What I was getting at is if you just scan the document and put it in a pdf, once you put it on your digital device once you fit the whole page to the screen you can no longer read the print. If you scale it so you can read it you have to move the pdf all over to read it.
Digital allows you to put it in a form that will automatically adjust. Word documents work no matter how you set the margins or your screen size or resolution.
So, yes. It DOES make perfect sense.
