  1. Share for Review - Option to add multiple users as Owners.

    On many occasions, we have multiple designers working on the same InDesign file. I've noticed on the new Share for Review feature that only the user that created the Review has access to the comments in the Review panel; other users who open the document get a "no access to comments" message (See attached images). I think it would be extremely beneficial to allow multiple 'owners' of the review, so as to allow multiple users to see comments made in the Review panel.

  2. Page range(s) and pages/spreads options in Share for Review

    Export options for Share for Review

    Ability to select page range(s), individual pages vs spreads, etc. directly in the export process, not buried in the last PDF export settings.

  3. improve pdf comments!

    Firstly, kudos on the improved PDF comments. They are much much faster. No comparison. Thank you. It also seems to be working (although not tested much) much better with mixed English and Hebrew.

    However, if you look at the attached screenshot, ❶ the comment icon is small and b/w. It would be extremely helpful if this was large and ❷ just like in DC, the comments box wastes tons of space. It would be nice if the text was much larger. This was executed very nicely in Acrobat XI (ruined in DC which nobody can use now). Could you make…

  4. 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.

  5. InDesign Share for Review

    Would like to have the ability to notify (email) members/people whenever a link has been updated. Currently, without notifications sent, we can go hours before a client looks at revisions because they didn't realize the change was made.

  6. STOP REQUIRING AN ADOBE ID to Review

    1st this Review feature is long overdue. other updates and features are also long overdue. Sharing needs to be easier!!! Many clients, producers, freelance artists and brand owners are not Adobe users and they do not adopt things they don't understand right away. we need a way to share and review work that isn't just recruiting for adobe. pay attention to your subscribers needs not more barriers. The subscription model has been the empty shell everyone feared it would be and you all have no motivation to update adequate solutions

  7. Share for review - A Great New Feature

    I just started testing the new Share for Review and am really liking it so far - very smooth and an upgrade over the Publish online feature which I tried but found was no better than just saving a PDF to the cloud and sharing that. I like that in Share for Review I can just hit update on an active document. I am hoping over time to see the following added to this great new feature:


    • The ability to allow clients to download a PDF version

    • More Annotation tools (Highlights, cross-out, underlines, etc...)

    • The Ability to Create Versions

    • Bonus…

  8. 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.

  9. 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!

  10. 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

  11. 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.

  12. [15.1.1.103] Share for REVIEW | Panel is going blank after I did Save As with the same doc name

    Connection to the review is lost AFTER I save the document with:
    Save As with the same name.

    If this is "as designed" the feature should be changed!
    "Save As" to the same document name should NEVER break the connection to the review.

    Regards,

  13. 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…

  14. 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.

  15. Ability to Change Pencil Size

    In Share for Review, I have found that the pencil size is incredibly too large for pointing out small areas of text in a document with a lot of body text. An option to decrease the size of the pencil stroke would be great. Thanks!

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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…
