No, just Arcobat Reader.
"just Acrobat Reader" is bloated enough itself... I prefer to use Easy PDF Reader, which consumes much less memory and therefore is easier to use. It, however, does not allow copying of the contents.

You don't like PDF, I don't like CHM and therefor I just don't support it.
So where is the Problem?
The problem is that you are a minority on this case... The majority does prefer CHM. That's called being selfish. If you don't do it for other people, then why do it at all? I don't think anybody wants it in PDF format at all.

It is copyrighted material. Everything one writes is automatically copyrighted if not stated otherwise.
(Although this might not always be the case considering general small talk and german copyright laws).

But if you feel happy, I can explicitly point this out too.
Ok. You are right - it is copyrighted. But as long as something is free and accessible by everyone, distribution in an easy-to-use-for-people format should be promoted. Because it will just make your name more known to other people. Besides, if I am stating your name in every article, I am not breaking the copyright. Prove me wrong.

Don't know for other contries, but german copyright laws do only permit personal usage and short ecerpts if you are publishing smth., you can't quote the whole document.

PDF is easy to use and available on multiple Platforms.

I am not going to support CHM.

I like the product/hook thing I found it intuitive enough. Though it was always nice to read what you had to say about it, oh and this thread has provided some good amusement...

EDIT: Is there any way to add a new hook without editing the xml file?

If it needs instructions, there's room for improvement.
Give users what they actually want, not what they say they want. And whatever you do, don't give them new features just because your competitors have them!

Due to the way it is currently implemented, your XML must define at least 2 Hooktypes:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

The Filename should match your Product ID.
Also, there should be hooktype_xyz Phrases in Phrasegroup Plugin System for all your Hooktypes.

What has you not supporting it got to do with denying anyone else the right to produce a CHM version, you wouldn't be supporting it if someone else did it

If I did so, I would support CHM to be a succesful Format.
Thank you for your understanding that I am not going to do this.

@boofo
This Question doesn't make sense.
However, you can cache Templates in Hook cache_templates.

What doesn't make sense? I wanted to cache a template in the product xml of my hack. And I was informed about the cache_templates hook right after I posted this request. I missed it before.

No need to thank me. You don't actually have my understanding - I find your logic very odd. :ermm:
