Looking for a good electronic catalog poster (V8)

Hello

Looking for a good electronic catalog poster (V8)
If someone has an user friendly electronic catalog poster , other the the
one from CA , can you please send me .
The one i've downloaded from CA is really ugly , it is obvious that the
person who designed it doesn't have to use it every day !

When you open it , you come with the V8 catalog poster without any
characters, only boxes empty representing the tablespaces. First action :
Have to click in all boxes to find where your table is ... really bad !
Now , i 've found the right box, and can see the tables , but the
characters are so small that i destroyed my eyes to find my table !! I
click to zoom , and then the box is so big that i couldn't see anything ....

I finally end with this by printing the catalog tables given in the SQL
ref. manual ....

(The V7 catalog was good ..)

You're right Daniel - I don't have to work with it every day!

Mind you, although I did do most of the work on the physical poster, the
electronic version was just copied from that work and, yes, it assumes
you already know the layout of the poster.

I'd be interested to know how many people DO use the electronic one and
whether it would be appreciated if we redid the design?

Please let me know OFF LIST (at [login to unmask email] please) if you DO
use the e-poster and whether you think the current V8 one does NOT meet
your needs

Thanks to all
