BOT (DE) question

Post by Derek_Holland » Fri Jun 17, 2005 3:18 am

Yeah, you got me to register. Hope your happy :wink:

Anyways, since the pdf is 260 pages and the print is going to be 192, what is going to be cut?

Not much. There are some edits, but the PDF has a lot of white space that won't be replicated in the print edition. Let me recruit the author to give you a more detailed explanation (hold, please)...

Derek,

Sorry it's taken a bit to respond, but I had some problems logging on to the message board :( Anyway, that's cleared up now, so I can answer the question at hand. What was cut? Well, as Joseph said, a lot of the white space that appeared in the PDF version is gone (no big loss there). In addition, there was a great deal of repeated information that was streamlined for efficiency. Many of the more similar templates were condensed into larger entries where possible, and the layout consolidated the pagecount further. There was very little that was actually "cut" from the book, and the material that didn't make it was deemed redundant or too 3.0 specific to apply to the updated version. Hope that helps! :)
