  1. Share for Review: Page view instead of Spread View

    I am having lots of people reviewing page-oriented instead of spread-oriented documents. (Books, manuals and the like.) Some are asking why they can't view the PDF in Share for Review as a single scrolling page, like in Adobe Reader. I personally don't care, but I have no answer for them. It would be nice, and it seems it would be technically not that difficult, to support single-page view. This would really help people reviewing on a tablet or a phone.

  2. Tagging/Notifications for Guests

    I use the Share for Review feature mostly with users who do not have or need Adobe licenses - and for security all documents have to be password protected. Therefore, most of my reviewers are 'guests' and only receive notifications if I reply to something they said. If I add a new comment on my own, or revise text or try to direct their attention to a new Pin, they do not receive any kind of notification. It would be useful if I could tag guest users via their email address and they could get an email. If this is…

  3. Share for Review feature notifications settings should be accessible in InDesign, not only Adobe Cloud

    The share review feature could use a lot of work. First off, the notification settings should be in InDesign, not Adobe cloud. People don't know to go to Adobe Cloud to adjust notifications, nor did you tell anyone. Also, review comments in InDesign are still a bit glitchy, sometimes the pin or highlighted content does not appear within the editor when viewing review comments. Thanks you!

  4. Allow to export pdf with comments for archival purposes

    Once we are done with a project, we package all of our files and upload to our server. It would be nice to be able to export the reviewed documents as pdfs that include all of the comments made. Just for archival purposes in case we ever go back and wonder why certain changes were made.

  5. Add comments from InDesign to reviewer using Share for Review

    It seems like owners of documents can only reply to existing comments made in the Share for Review document but can't create comments in InDesign that appear in the Share for Review document. Often, we have a question about text or images that the reviewer needs to answer, but we have to first Share for Review and then create the comment there. It would be great if we could convert InDesign Notes to comments for the reviewer that they can see in the Share for Review side panel.

  7. Enable the user to select specific pages, spreads or page ranges to share for review

    I would like to be able to create a link (to share for review) for specific pages or page ranges, so I can send a stakeholder the work applicable to them and not sharing my whole document with them.

  8. "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

  9. 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

  10. More relevant Share for Review page title

    I've recently started using the Share for Review feature which is great, however when sharing the link on Skype (as well as other messaging platforms I'd assume), it shows the link title as “Your Work | Adobe Creative Cloud” which isn’t very accurate or helpful to whoever I’m sharing the review page with.

    It would be ideal if the HTML title of the review page could contain the title I input when I set up the review page, so that the link preview is much more relevant for someone you might be sharing it with.

  11. 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…

  13. Being able to compare two proofs alongside one another in Adobe InDesign Review

    This would make client work with multiple proofs a lot easier! Many review systems I've used previously do this, and I'm aware acrobat does also - but my client finds Adobe InDesign Review to be easier to use.

  14. 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)

  15. Ability to pass ownership of Share For Review to another user, or indeed share ownership

    It would be really beneficial to be able to move ownership of a Share For Review to another user or indeed be able to have a buddy be the owner as often we move our documents around our workforce.

  16. share for review improvement

    Hi Adobe, share for review is an amazing feature. Three simple features I'm really missing

    • A button where my client can officialy approve the design
    • An option to show higher res pdf's
    • Copy paste possibility from the review in Indesign: as a designer you need to copy new given texts from clients. Now I have to type everything with the possibility of mistakes. Moreover, a lot of designers are more visually focussed and sometimes even dyslectic. A must have and simple feature in my eyes.

  17. 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!!

  18. Allow the 'owner' of a Share for Review document to use an alias

    I'm a freelancer and it would help if I could 'mask' my real email address/identity when I use Share for Review so that my client's clients can't see who I am. Ideally I should be able to create an alias so that I appear as 'MyClient Studio' rather than a third party.

  19. Allow unlimited characters in Share for Review

    An issue that keeps coming up with my clients is that they would love to write more comments within the "Share for Review" feature, but because of the character limit, they have to share their comments with me in a separate email. Could Adobe implement and unlimited characters for the Share for Review?

    Thank you!

  20. Batch upload Share for Review

    Please allow batch/multiple document upload for the Share for Review feature. At present it is buggy, crashes and the invidual document sharing method slows down the workflow. Having a single bulk upload process would make this feature indespensible.
