  1. I would love to be able to create several different "share for review" files for one document

    I have a file that is being proofread by three different teams; graphics, copy, and general flow. I want to be able to share a review file with each team, but do not want them all to be reviewing the same review file.

    I made a work-around by saving 2 copies of the InDesign file and creating a separate review files for them, but then I have to keep the original .indd file open and attend to the edits from the other two review files using the published web review files and then transcribing them to the original .indd file.

  2. Share for review (Features that can improve it)

    A few things that would improve this.

    Auto-updating the viewer's side of the document after you save the document instead of refreshing it every time or having to update the link.

    When they comment/draw on that it shows on the designer's side in the application as a popup on the document that they can add a checkmark afterward or comment if needed. This would basically bridge both ends to see live updates and live suggestions in the application and on the viewer's side.

    It would also make the designer's life easier to go between tabs or applications to see the…

  3. Ability to add indesign reviewers on mobile

    It would great to add reviewers on mobile or have the ability
    to access a link that you can share with a client.

  4. Option to pick your default Share for Review Private or Public Access Setting

    This may already be available (if so please teach me), but I don't see it.

    Having the share for review option able to default to either public or private access. I can't tell you how many times I am in a rush and forget to click public and then the person gets back and says, they don't have access.

  5. 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!

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

    A restart may be…

  9. 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!

  11. 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 #.

  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. 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.

  15. 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…

  16. 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.

  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.
