  1. Switch between multiple links created for one project

    If you need to create multiple links for one layout, for example one for internal review and one for the client - how can you switch back and forth between them directly from the Share for Review panel in InDesign? Can it really be that if you create a new link (for whatever reason) you can never go back and update a link that has already been created?

  2. Compare Changes

    I will send an updated document out and my clients won't be able to see what has changed. Can a setting or state be added to show the previous version vs the latest version?

  3. tabs read Your work instead of file name

    this is really inconvenient especially if more than one file is being reviewed.

  6. Link comments to text as well as to physical location in graphics frame

    This could be viewed as a bug report, from the user's perspective. And I am a user and not a coder or designer for ID (though I am a UX dweeb.) However, from a coder/designer standpoint, this is a feature request, thus posting here rather than as a bug.

    The feature is to link comments not to an x,y location on a spread, but to (1) an x,y location within a graphics frame, or (2) for a text frame, to specific text in that frame. Linking to text can be by highlighting the text and then attaching a comment to…

  8. A folder system in Publish Online

    Increasingly online publishing needs a home. Adobe offers this, although I came to this quite late. It is a mess when you have dozens of docs.

  9. Ability to print and/or download proofs

    I have some clients that like to print hard copies of their proofs. Before the 'Share for Review" feature, it was a lot of pdf's making made and uploaded, which tended to crash my InDesign, so I do enjoy not having to create so many, and having one link throughout the process.
    However, there is no option for the client to download a pdf or to print the pages directly from the proof... so then I'm back to making pdf's again. That is the only thing so far my clients seem unhappy about with the new proofing system, is the…

  10. Would like to be able to share a pdf (for proofing/approval) straight out of InDesign. Exceeding valuable as it skips steps.

    In the busy print workflow environment it would be nice to skip steps when providing clients with proofs for review/approval. Creating and sending a pdf proof to clients straight out of InDesign would be just the thing. Currently, as you know, you export the InDesign document as a pdf, open it up in Acrobat and share the file for review. While the Acrobat function is fine (although we've noticed lag time in clients receiving the proof) in the face-pace environment of a printshop, where many of these proofs are processed, it would be a time saver.

  11. Password Protection in the new Review panel

    Include a password protection field in the new review tab. Allow it to be toggled on and off. When a review is sent, and a password is created, send the password in the same email as the review link.

  12. Ability to add an image to a note

    Add the ability to add an image to a note. I work with technical manuals that are image heavy and some of my reviewers like to add examples of what they're looking for by showing an example of a different document.

  13. Notification Settings

    Getting notified for every single comment seems like over kill in some cases, especially in the early parts life of a document where I can be receiving multiple comments on one page. If Adobe can add a setting where the owner can toggle how many comments can be posted before a notification gets sent out that would be great. Or have a "notify" button that when pushed will send a notification out.

  14. Include Page Slug

    I often have multiple sizes of graphics inside of one ID document and it would helpful to show the slug when sending a Share for Review link. I currently use the slug to identify and label each page (and size) and it would be nice to have that included for the reviewer to also identify each page/size.

    If the slug isn't the best way to accomplish this, it would be great to have a label on the review for the name of each page and size

  15. General notes

    I am very much appreciating this new feature, as are my clients. I would like to request an ability to make general notes about my design changes without having to necessarily pin them to a particular spread. Sometimes my comments are big picture and guide the client to consider a larger idea or concept, as opposed to comments or changes to specific areas of the document. I could see this being a field at the top of the comments bar for general comments. Thank you for considering!

  16. 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

  17. 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.

  18. Share for Review - Updated Link intimation to reviewers

    When you originally share for review and enter in the others with whom you want to share it, it allows you to send a note too. If updates are done, it doesn't notify anyone that the update is now on line and there's no box to send them a message that it has.

    I would like it to send to everyone on the list a notice that the file has been updating and/or allow the message box to be there so I could at least manually notify them. The way it's set up now, I have to craft an additional…

  19. Share for Review - Option to select/highlight text

    When an editor is reviewing the document it whould be verry nice to have the option to select a part of a sentence that has to be corrected. Now there is only the option to pin it or draw a shape.

    The editor now had to select the text, make a Pin and paste the text that has to be changed in the review box and add the new text.

    Ideal whould be to have the option when text is selected the interface makes a new notiation from the selected text and highlights it in the document.

  20. share for review track changes

    If you add a "track changes" option in the share for review function, it will be super! Now my clients mark things to be changed (mostly textual corrections) and when i've marked them as done, the marking is gone, so the client can't verify that the changes are made the way they wanted.
