This is a bit of a "what's up with that" question and not serious, but it bugs me.
If you choose "yes" to "Help Improve Adobe's Products" (and I also think it's also in the registration for the product) you are presented with a bunch of drop down menus with basic information: Job Type, Organization Size, Organization Type, Location. Yet, the job type menu does not have my job - Publisher or even Designer (Publisher) - I went with Software Engineer which isn't completely off base since I specialize in publishing techology.
Now, I'm used to other software products not having this, but this is for InDesign. Maybe I'm just not thinking about this right, but shouldn't a publishing software have the job type "publisher" in the drop down menu? It seems basic common sense, unless they think that people actually involved in publishing technology wouldn't use InDesign.
Hmm, I see your point, I mostly do publishing production (layout) and automation development with a very small amount of layout design.
However, I think most of these could be accounted for. For example, wouldn't someone who does copywriting to choose Technical Writer/Documentation or Sales/Education/field specialty (depending on what they are writing for)? A prepress tech could choose "Engineer (either software or other)" and then choose Printing and Publishing as the Org Type; Graphic designer has an option as does art director.
But I spend most of my time laying out books and journals, creating print, online PDFs, epubs, etc and finding ways to automate the process to make it faster.
That would make sense, although it would seem to make more sense for them to have a categories that would fit the people most likely to use their products (so they have that info) then map them to what they think the appropriate gov boxes should be.
