    Workaround that will get the Share for Review panel working again:

    1. Close InDesign.
    2. Bring up the Creative Cloud Desktop (CCD) and sign out.
    3. Launch InDesign and sign in here (not from the CCD).
    4. Create a new document in InDesign.
    5. Open the Share for Review panel.

  5. page range for publishment in 'share for review' is set by last print/export job

    When sharing for review, the published document can be limited to a certain page range, because it takes that setting from the last print/export job. The only workaround is to first reset that range in the print/export window. Then publish for review to see all of the pages.

    Being able to select what pages to share (or not) would be a nice feature in the 'share for review' interface. This way, I would not have to make versions, separating artwork ready for review, and artwork that is not.

  6. Share for Review: Image Quality

    Can we have an option where Share > Share for Review has a high-quality view as opposed to the low-res preview (see file attached- Review (left) and Original (right)) please?

    Share for Review is to quickly share a design that is still a work-in-progress with the Reviewer(s) for quick feedback. Since the review opens in a browser for the reviewer, it has to load quickly even on slow networks, that’s why the image quality has been kept low deliberately so that the page loads quickly without long wait times. Using high-res views will slow down the loading of pages in the browser considerably, marring the experience.

    Hope this helps.

  7. Share for Review SYNC Broken

    I use "Share" > "Share for Review" on a Program for review by multiple departments for edits. I received notifications of over 200 edits, but upon opening the InDesign file to begin changes, the "Window" > "Comments" > "Review" Panel data is empty and again says "Create Review".

    So the connection from my online review and the source InDesign is broken. Additionally, there is no option to save that online version as a pdf to import the comments via that option in "Window" > "Comments" > "PDF Comments"

    After doing a Share for Review, if you Close the document without Saving it, the review link is not present in the document, that’s why when you reopen it, the Review panel is empty and says ‘Create Review’.

    So, the way Share for Review works is like this:
    - If you are opening an already saved document and sharing it for review, after doing the share for review, the document becomes dirty, so Save it before Closing it. Otherwise, let the document remain open. Once you receive notifications of comments, open the document to see all the comments in Review panel.

    - If you are creating a new document, making your designs and sharing it for review and you keep the document open, the comments made by reviewers are visible in the Review panel.

  8. Share for review

    During this pandemic, I'm am trying to use the 'share for review' feature for a book I'm laying out. It is 600 pages, 300 spreads, about 333 MB file. It includes images and text.
    I've designed other books -- the printer had no problem with the files
    I'm using a Mac with InDesign 15.1.
    When I tried to share the file, 4 pages - 2 spreads uploaded. I tried again and 8 pages - 4 spread, appeared for sharing. I didn't choose them, it is what InDesign randomly chose.
    As an experiment, I created another file and tried to upload…

  9. When I share to review, weird things happen

    I have InDesign 15.1.1 and I've been using the new Share to Review feature often. I've noticed that my text and tables would completely disappear on random pages and the Table of Contents became messed up as well. To make the text reappear, I had to adjust the size of the frame by a pixel or two then it would return. It didn't matter if I made the frame bigger or smaller.

  11. InDesign 15.11 - Share for review: LINKS panel does not appear, even when Window shows it is active.

    Share for Review only works in Advanced platform, but controls disappear at top. Link window does not appear even when selected. Switched to Book platform and got controls back, but Share for Review comments disappeared.

  12. Share for Review access settings - Public Link not available

    I am trying to use the new Share for Review option. As outlined here, I should be able to switch the access options from invitation only to public which should give me the option to have people without an Adobe account review the content by simply inputting a password for access. However, I cannot switch from invitation only to public as I simply have the invitation only option as a fixed option and no dropdown to choose from. Is there an option somewhere that I need to enable first so I can publicly share these files for review? As of…

  13. Share for review annotations not showing up in InDesign

    In using the new Share for Review this morning from today's update to v15.1 we did a test document that included some drawing annotations. The comments showed up as expected in InDesign but not the drawing annotations. I have tried toggling on and off the eye in the review panel and nothing happens like it does in the web browser.
