Hey everybody, we see the comments from some of you about presentation issues with the ebook. We’ve determined that the PDF is missing a required embedded font. This is leading to odd (or worse) presentation for some of you, including bitmapped text. We’re working with the vendor to create a new file. I’ll let you know when the new file has replaced the old one in the Microsoft Download Center. We apologize for this; degraded performance is never our goal.
Also, I’ve had one report that some sample code folder path names are too long when you’re unzipping the sample code. (Windows limits a single path to 260 characters.) So you might want to shorten the path name for the code when you’re unzipping it, shortening “Microsoft_Press_ebook_Programming_Windows_Phone_7_Sample_Code” to “MSPress_ProgWP7code,” for example.
More as soon as we know it, and thanks to everyone who let us know something was up!
I'd like to ask tou for another "feature" in the new file: the possibility to use the highlighter tool (I usually use Adobe Acrobat) while reading; the current file does not allow it. Thank you.
The current file contains ONLY bitmap of text, no text. Maybe use something else then Microsoft Office to create it?
Its garbage both on a Mac (with both Adobe Reader and Preview), and also on iPad's iBooks. Useless.
Thanks a lot for all the effort you are doing!!
Looks perfect with Acrobat Reader on the Mac
Why doesn't the XPS version have outline view, just like the PDF version?
Any new information on having the PDF rebuilt?
For some reason - the source code does not download properly. I believe that the download is supposed to be about 5.02MB and only 1.15MB comes down and does not open. Can you please fix and reupload?
