Client: Could you remove the background from this PDF?

The PDF was of a PowerPoint slide with nothing on it but a title bar and a pie chart. As far as I could tell there was no background.

Me: I’m sorry, I’m not sure what you mean. What background do you need to be removed?

Client: Here, let me show you.

He opened his computer and showed me the PowerPoint file. He kept waving his mouse around the screen.

Client: This stuff. I want you to remove all this.

It took me a while to realize that his mouse was passing over the top and sides of the screen more often than the middle. “All this” was the toolbar and preview tray. He thought it was included in the PDF, which he hadn’t even checked.

This client is in sales, and is the forward face of his company.
