The ability to comment is essential. As is the ability to crop out extra blank material, extract pages, etc. I don't like to print unnecessary masses of material, so if I want say the cover page and page 7, which has a diagram, I'll bring it up in Acrobat, delete pages 2 to 6, and print two pages in my duplex printer. This gives me a single sheet of paper with the relevant info. Then I close the file without saving it, to cancel my temporary deletion.
In your wisdom, you don't let us do these basic things. Yes, of course it's an issue. How could it not be?
Hi guys, I wish I had your problems of having to download pages I didn't want. I still have not found a data sheet on the two IGBT's. I have noticed there are a lot of them available, at a price, $346 to $410.
Win, I don't get the problem. I just downloaded a data sheet. Opened the pdf file and printed a single page out of it. Seems good to me. Is there more that you want? We only used to have pages from books.
If you want to capture images, there are screen capture utilities that can help.
The locked-datasheet folks seem fairly ok to me. Did I miss something important?
Not more. But not less. Some data sheets are incomplete, wrong, badly written,... Some components are complex, have pbs, all the truth is rarely given. I like to keep some record of this hard won information. The best place is often the data sheet itself. In the old data books time it was easy to add a note, insert a paper sheet... but now?
Print some datasheets, just to take notes? It'd be much better to not lock them in the first place.
