I recently purchased a VPS, and I really regret not making that move sooner. The freedom tastes oh so sweet :chuckle:

You’re not looking for a PDF editor, but rather a way of exporting a PDF from your current editing software, right? Or do they supply you with a PDF template? Surely Microsoft Office is able to do that at this point?

So yeah, git. ;)

If there’s anything you take away from this thread, it is that you should try out a version control system. Git and SVN are currently the most popular, so it makes sense to give those a shot. Personally, I’ve had a better experience with git. If you’re somewhat familiar with the command line, learning the basic commands (pull, add, status, commit, push) on the CLI right from the start will make understanding a GUI much easier.


- How people get away with just using a lightweight editor like sublimetext for editing entire sites

I’ve been using Sublime for pretty much everything lately. I realise I’m missing some great features (most notably intelligent auto-completion that the Jetbrains products boast), but the simplicity makes up for that. For me, it’s an alternative to vim rather than a full IDE.

What do you currently do in Dreamweaver that an editor like Sublime Text would not be able to do?

It has to do with the checkout, you have to add billing address now before purchasing if you haven’t already so that’s most likely going to cause some hesitation.
Yeah, I mentioned this in another thread and moderator said “false causality”, which is a ridiculous thing to say IMO. I didn’t feel like arguing the point further, so I let it go.

While causality and correlation are often confused in these matters, I agree that it seems likely that there is a relation here.. Even though it is disappointing, I guess it does not come entirely as a surprise. I can only assume that Envato calculated the risk and the resulting net loss.

It’s just plastered with ‘Author Fee’ everywhere. Couldn’t we just make that a sub-note or something in the same row as the sale price?

Sounds annoying! As soon as I get a sale in the new system, I’ll whip up a few lines of Greasemonkey to fix this client-side :P

There used to be a Google group that a group of authors used as some sort of author-only forum a few years ago after requests for an author-only board within the marketplace were not addressed. It seems it has since died due to inactivity, though.

EDIT: If you’re interested in the history of the subject, have a read through this old classic
