  2. 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)

    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!

  4. 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 The problem we are having with InCopy not only is the human error of the risk of outdated files, but uploading large…

  5. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Share for Review - Image Quality

    Bring the optimized quality of Share for Review images up to the level of acceptable web-based image optimization at 100% size.

    I understand the need to optimize images for high-performance quick reviews. However, the current setting is far too low. Upgrading the image quality to an acceptable web-image optimization will help reduce feedback loops with concerns from stakeholders over bad image quality.

    In my review workflows using Shared for Review, I am now constantly exporting and sending separate PDFs to reviewers to prove image quality based on concerns from the Share for Review representation.

    Please know that the Share for…

  10. Center and zoom in

    I often find it hard to spot the pins on the canvas when reviewing comments for a busy layout. A center in and zoom level or a better highlighted pin would be awesome!

  11. Access setting defaults

    Share for review is a game changer! Thank you! But every time the compiling and uploading is done I need to change the access type from access setting it has to re-compile and upload. This is such a shame.

  12. Keep Comments on the Spread When Resolved

    My reviewers love being able to see the conversation and comments all the other reviewers are making, saving them time by not making the same comment over and over. My proposal team thinks the interaction between InDesign and SFR is wonderful!! In our large documents, we have found as we start to make the edits, the comments disappear making it challenging for the document editor to find where they were. The comment totally disappears or it throws them to the end of the list in a pile of "unmapped comments." BUT it then totally moves the comment off the spread.…

  13. How to release an IP address on a Mac?

    To release and renew your IP address in Mac OS X, you’ll use the Network system preferences to renew the DHCP Lease.

    1. Click the Apple button and choose System Preferences.
    2. Choose the Network icon.
    3. Select your method of connecting to the internet. In most cases it will either be Ethernet or Wi-Fi.
    4. Click Advanced.
    5. If you selected Ethernet, you should already be in the TCP/IP tab heading. If you aren’t, or if you selected Wi-Fi, click the TCP/IP tab heading.
    6. Click Renew DHCP Lease.
    7. Click OK to exit the Advanced window, and then exit System Preferences.

  16. Share for review file management

    Hi, I would like to be able to manage files I shared for review in bulk: sometimes I have a lot of files I want to delete at once, but I cannot find a way to do that (have to delete them seperately and click a confirm button again and again...) If this option already exists, please let me know where to find it!

  18. Share for Review, Reviewing Comments: show page # as well as spread #

    When in InDesign and reviewing comments from Share for Review, it would be nice to have the comments identified by page # as well as spread #.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
