An independent graphic designer and instructor in InDesign, Photoshop and Dreamweaver after tiring of working for other people. I'm also a software tester for various companies and "Tier 0" tech support for friends, family, various associates and lots of clients...

comment What can a designer do if a client claims that the work delivered is unacceptable and refuses to pay?
A well-reasoned and excellent answer that takes a different path to the same conclusion: walk away and learn from the experience.

comment How can I hire a manga artist, and what are the general cost factors associated with producing a comic?
This question appears to be off-topic because it really doesn't relate to graphic design.

comment Batch Resize Multiple Images in InDesign Document from Placed MS Word Content
If you place an entire Word doc with images all in one go, you're working directly against the basic architecture of the program. Anything you do from that point will be slower and more difficult. The solution is to build a workflow that uses the software, not try to bludgeon the software into fitting your preconceived workflow.

comment What are some good fonts to use for bullet characters?
You pretty much covered all the usual suspects. All of the pi fonts that ship with the OSes have a collection of useful bullet-type characters, including Wingdings and its siblings/offspring.

You're welcome! An amazing number of file formats are zipped XML collections, like ePub. All of the MS Office 'x' formats are that way.

Joonas, that looks awfully like an answer to the question... :)
