Share for Review comments link to incorrect spreads on web viewer after reordering pages in InDesign
I am using the new Share for Review feature to get feedback on a 100+ page document I am working on. Previously I tested reordering pages on a small document, and all comments and pins stayed attached to the page they were originally placed on, even when its page number changed.
However, after adding some pages to this larger document, I'm running into a problem where the comments are pinned to the correct page inside Indesign, but the wrong one in the web viewer. On the web, it seems to ignore the added pages and goes by the original page number of the comment.
In the attached example, the comment was originally on page 100, but that page was pushed to number 105 as extra pages were added earlier in the document. In Indesign, the pin appears on page 105, attached to the image mentioned in the comment. On the web, the pin appears on the wrong page.
This problem started while I was using the previous release, and updating to the latest (14.0.3) hasn't helped. I have updated the link multiple times. Thankfully, even after restarting indesign a few times, the comments remain in the right place inside of Indesign.
If anyone has a fix, I'd really appreciate it! Otherwise I hope that Adobe can fix the issue soon. Thank you!
Yes, this makes reviewing a nightmare. Even if you delete pages last, it makes it impossible to review resolved changes to ensure all have been corrected. The PDF comments interface is WAY more advanced than this. We're okay losing the comment if we're deleting a page, but the comments need to stay with their respective pages, not serve as just a layer over a now-shuffled layout.

I am having this exact issue in reverse. Comments are only linked correctly on a 60 page document because I was cautious enough to have made a second review link for myself with another free Adobe ID.. it's showing the comments online for the test account correctly, but not indesign now that I've added and moved a few pages. So annoying!!
This review feature is a nice idea but still incredibly BETA!

I'm having issues with comments not moving along with what they are attached to as I'm editing/moving text. Huge issue!
