  1. InDesign CC1019 - Import function of PDF comments on graphics are incorrect

    Step 1: Export PDF x4 from ID 14.0.1
    Step 2: Correction of the PDF file with Acrobat DC 2019.008.20080
    Step 3: Import PDF comments into ID file from before (ID 14.0.1)

    Comments within graphics are not clearly assignable after import in InDesign.

    In Acrobat or Acrobat Reader, the corrections are displayed correctly

    If in PDF text corrections to graphics are marked with the PDF correction function, they will not be displayed completly when importing to InDesign. Or these are displayed in the wrong position.

  2. Imported drawn PDF comments don't adjust in ID layout

    1. ID 14
    2. Import a batch of PDF comments into layout, including edits made using the Oval and Arrow tools to show placement. Then proceed to apply edits, thereby adjusting the location of the text on the page.
    3. I would expect the drawn edits to be tagged to a location in the text, and to track with the copy as it reflows. If this feature is going to be available, that is.
    4. Actual result: the markup remains on the page at the coordinates at which it was imported. By the time to you get to that location, if you've been making…

  3. Imported PDF comments not accurate

    1. ID 14 Mac
    2. Import PDF comments from file, including strikethroughs, replaced text, comments
    3. Some edits NOT SHOWN in ID file, though clearly present when PDF is viewed in Acrobat
    4. Faithful transfer of all edits to ID file (note non-transferred strikethrough of Highlights of Baltics in bottom quarter of screendump)

  4. import pdf comments

    1. ID 14 Mac
    2. Copy text out of a comment to paste into layout
    3. Would expect that the cursor could be used to select all or part of an imported PDF comment
    4. In fact it is EXTREMELY difficult to get the palette to recognize that text is selected in the palette interface. The "Copy" popup does not appear a large proportion of the time, or you can't select the range of characters you need. Even though Acrobat is terrible at the same process, it is significantly faster to copy the needed range of characters from the comment in Acrobat and switch…

  5. Import PDF Comments not working correctly for Tables.

    PDF comment import not working accurately on tables

    1. ID 14 Mac
    2. Import PDF comments to layout including simple 2-column tables in which an entire row is marked as deleted/struck through
    3. Expected that the entire row would be deleted upon acceptance of edit via PDF Comments palette
    4. In fact Accepting edit only deletes the contents of the first cell of the row, leaving the orphaned data behind.

  6. Copy in Indesign layout is menu clicked "All Caps". PDF comments does not work. Only when copy is set to normal

    When my copy in Indesign layout is menu clicked "All Caps" from tool bar or Character menu. I make a change request in the PDF. Like "remove" a word. Then Import the PDF comments. Accept does not work. The only time it works is if the copy is set to regular copy or if you type the copy in "All Caps". No menu changes.

  7. PDF Comments not hiding

    PDF Comment import does not hide comments on the layout after the Hide Comments on Layout button is pressed.

    The following is the process I followed:
    - Displayed the PDF Comments pane in InDesign.
    - Imported comments from PDF's.
    - Selected the Hide Comments on Layout Button in the PDF Comments pane.
    * Comments are hidden from view.
    - Leave the InDesign window
    - Return to InDesign, and some of the comment boxes are shown, some are not shown, and some are partially shown (the box is cut in half).
    - Move cursor over the Show Comments on Layout button.…
