    Why not just put a regular PDF download link?

    After I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on every time a
    comment is added I get 4 emails with the exact same comment.

    There has to be an easy method you are able to remove me from that service?

    Hello, I’ve been using Elements 8 for a few years on my Windows Vista version laptop. No problems. I know my pc is old, 6 yrs. Now suddenly I can’t use Elements and get an error mssg that asks me to restart my pc, which changes nothing and says to contact my IT professional – I’m it. It’s a personal computer. I have no one to call and can’t afford that. What is happening? How do I fix this without a new computer or version of Elements, which won’t work on my old trusty pc? the mssg ends with “Error 150:30” if that helps. I would uninstall and reinstall, but when I tried to do that it told me I have to deactivate the code, which I can’t do, because I can’t open it! Did I say HELP?! Please, help!!

    Recently loaded Creative Suite 6 to a networked workstation with multiple networked printers, scanners and plotters mapped to the workstation. Whether or Illustrator or Photoshop, software isn’t recognizing any of the devices mapped to the workstation. I scanned the Creative Suite 6 Printer Guide but found no mention of how to add printers, so that CS 6 recognizes them, sees them and allows the user to print to them. Thanks.
