  1. Automatic version control for Share for Review

    Would it be possible for InDesign to apply version control (like GitHub) to Share for Review? What if, for example, designers could choose a versioning standard in the preferences panel (e.g. 1.0.1 vs 2020.v1.1) which is then activated when you Share for Review and updated every time the link is updated?

  2. Share for review deadline

    Hi team,

    Share for review is looking fantastic, however there is one feature we really need and that is to be able to set a review deadline, is this on the cards for any time soon?

    It would be great if it worked something like this:
    – Select user or group to share with
    – Set their deadline to submit feedback
    – Automatic reminders if they haven't reviewed leading up to the deadline
    – Lock or revoke their access to view after the review deadline has passed

    Thanks

  4. Share for Review with Slug Area

    I use slugs with my layouts and clients reference the information there, as well as vetting production elements like crops and color swatches. I would like the option to Share for Review with crop and slug area included.

  5. Rotate pages feature neccesary for Share for Review

    My file for printing has to be horizontal (it opens up, its a calendar), so I rotate the view 90 degrees for working. When I share for review, my coworkers see the file horizontal and cannot rotate the pages on the Acrobat preview, also I cannot rotate or do something so they can view it differently, so our calendar is being reviewed with lots of neck straing.

    Please do something!

  6. Share for Review Markup Link- Automatic Refresh

    When a Share For Review Link is updated, it should automatically trigger a fresh, or introduce a dialogue box to notify the viewer that there is a new version!

  7. Comments to Zoom Where Pin Is

    If you are selecting a comment, the pin will have a small way of highlighting (whether it be a small square, yellow highlighter, red strikethrough or blue strikethrough) and will fit page to screen. This can be difficult to see when there are a lot of comments on one page. It would be helpful for it to center and zoom into the comment by 50% when selecting it.

    Another recommendation: When I tag a reviewer, they get the email about my tag. However, when they go to find this tag, they have to scroll through every comment to find it.…

  8. Enable importing of comments from PDF Review in Document Cloud

    Importing of comments from a review being shared via Document Cloud makes perfect sense, this would make a seamless process. The new share for review feature looks great but is too buggy to use at the moment with clients (I have tried)

  9. pdf comments

    Allow assign shortcuts for working with pdf-comments

    Working with corrections via imported pdf-comments could be sped up very much if there would be the possibility to assign following shortcuts:

    • copy comment to clipboard
    • mark comment as applied (or what it is in english)
    • go to next / previous comment

  12. "Share for review" FILTER & SORT comments

    If 30 comments, I as a user would like to have "unresolved/unanswered" comments shown in bold. A small checkmark for each allows me to mark them resolved, thus they now showed as greyed out/ or crosslined.

    I would like a filter to sort by
    STATUS: "unresolved/ resolved" and
    SORT: by date or user name

  13. Review: different positions for different clients

    Create design previews or reviews for individual page areas for different users. For example, for a larger production, customer X is only interested in page 15, customer Y wants page 3, customer Z is only interested in page 85 at the bottom.... =) Hope you understand the idea

  14. Allow Author to mark comment as complete without removing the reference.

    Currently, if I (the author) mark something as "resolved", it removes the comment and prevents the person who created the comment from being able to easily see what they have done and how it was resolved.

    it would be nice for people invited to review to see what past comments they have made (maybe grey out a comment that is marked "Resolved" so that they can go back to that page and see. Then, if it is not done to satisfaction, they could un-resolve it.

  16. Changes to the review tools

    First, I'm using ID 15.1.3 and I cannot upgrade at this time. Not sure how much of these ideas would be resolved by upgrading.
    -Is it possible to make pins and pencil lines transparent? There are two ways I can think of: a percentage slider just like alpha control in color settings, or a three point switch: hide/semisolid/solid. Either way I would like to see this as a control for each comment so you can choose it individually. Right now the pin or pencil line blocks the art somewhat, which is where the transparency would be handy.
    -Right now, you…

  17. [15.1.1.103] Share for REVIEW | Panel is going blank after I did Save As with the same doc name

    Connection to the review is lost AFTER I save the document with:
    Save As with the same name.

    If this is "as designed" the feature should be changed!
    "Save As" to the same document name should NEVER break the connection to the review.

  18. The ability to mention (@) guest users

    Not everyone who will review my projects have an Adobe account, but I still need to be able to mention them in order to draw there attention to certain comments or areas on the page.

  19. Allowing the Review Function to have live text editable/collaborative

    The company I work for focuses more on publishing where we are working between an art and development team and an editorial team.

    Currently, we use InCopy to allow our editors to be more hands on with their major changes they need to text. But it creates a long wait time, packaging and uploading large files to our current servers, and room for error for the designer or editor to not be working from the most updated file. The problem we are having with InCopy not only is the human error of the risk of outdated files, but uploading large…

  20. Share for Review with indb

    It would be amazing to have the chance to share and review all the documents included in one book.
    We usually design magazines, which are made of many InDesign documents gathered in an indb book. We have to export a pdf so the editor can review the whole magazine. This is ok but manage the comments directly from InDesign would be a huge time-saving feature.
    Thanks!!
