For every designer who actually learns (most of) the favored layout program there are 10 or 20 who do not — they just wing it.

And for every output jockey who understands the designer software whose files they receive, there are 10 or 20 who do not — they just shove it down the network and hope for the best.

I believe it is the way of the world. Fortunately, enough stuff works well enough so everyone gets by, or someone else fixes it.

What can you do? As you said: “The answer of course is let all these problems fly over your head, and just get on with it . . . ”
