Looking forward to checking it out, but XPS?

I think it's time to throw in the towel on XPS as a viable competitor to PDF. The default download should be a PDF, not XPS.

If you look at the Downloads tab, you can see that all documents are also available in PDF and Doc format.

I know, I did get the package that had all 3 formats, but I just found it strange that XPS was the default format under "Recommended Download".

We did a poll last year with the communities asking which document formats should be included and which should be used as default. The results showed that while users preferred the choice of all three (XPS, PDF and DOCX) the use of XPS was the preference at the time.

Also, the XPS version does not allow me to print the doc in portrait, it always comes out as bottom clipped landscape no matter what setting.

I have no problems with portrait of the PDF version.

Thanks for the information. Upcoming releases of the ALM Ranger document will only come in PDF, so there won´t be the problem in the future.

Anyway, thanks for noticing !
