  1. Share for Review is showing files in low res very blurry

    I'm using PSD files linked in my InDesign, they look blurry like low res even the fonts used in the PSD https://assets.adobe.com/id/urn:aaid:sc:US:4e60c8e1-8ba1-46f0-af66-23ef2b71ac21?view=published

    Is there any option to share for review low res or high res please let us know, but I don't remember this happening to me before, they were shared always clear.

  3. 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.

  5. It takes forever to update the link for review.

    When I go the Share for Review menu and try to update the link, it starts to "think" and nothing else happens. It lasts for more than 10 minutes and I just give up. Indesign version 16.1

  6. Working Together with Other Designers

    I work in a team of 4 designers, and on occasion we have to cover for each other and finish/amend something someone else has started. We can share for review with other departments to add their amendments fine, however if someone else opens the .indd file on our shared server they can't see the comments. Is there not a way to make the comments save to the document itself instead of the account?

  7. InDesign Review Feature

    My coworker and I are both suddenly facing major problems with the review functionality with Adobe InDesign 16.1 (Windows). This has only been occurring for about 10 days. When the review function actually works instead of an error or just loading nonstop (only works 30% of the time now), the links often don't work in the end for other viewers to review and show up as an error. Now, when this works, the comments from the review link are not showing up where they were placed, and when we go in to implement them manually in InDesign from the weblink,…

  8. Share for Review 'highlight' and 'strike through' issues

    The share for review 'highlight' function and 'strike through' function are not visible in the host's files or the online preview. When one of our designers creates a document and then shares it with the team for review we receive a notification that text has been highlighted. When you navigate to the online preview or to the original indesign working file the notification lives in the share for review box but no text is highlighted so you don't know where the intended edit is. The same happens with the strike through function. Pinned items or using the marker tool are…

  9. Share for Review - Not Working

    I have tried share for review both with clients (who have CC) and with my team members (who all also have CC) and have been unsuccessful every time. When selecting the link that is sent to the users email, they are then redirected to their "Synced Files" and not the review link.

    This has happened whether we share it as private, public w/ password, or public. We have also tried logging out of CC and back in with no luck.

  10. Share for Review -Disappearing tools

    I have Indesign 16.0.
    On my first test of share for review, all the tools appeared.
    after saving it they disappeared. Then I saw that save as function disrupts the process.
    Then I signed out of my account and rebooted.
    When I signed back in the tools were there again.
    I opened another document (made in InDesign 16.0) and the tools were gone.

    THIS IS SO FRUSTRATING!
    How do I get the tools to stay consistently?

  12. Review is good start but needs a lot of work

    Intermittent issue with review panel appearing blank, needs restart to refresh it.

    Document and panel comments jump around making it painful to use in a long document. Panel seems to constantly refresh which appears to be causing the issue? Today can't see any comments or update from my side (see screenshot)

    It would be nice to have comments panel work as the pdf review

  14. Share for Review – Filename for the reviewer

    I am loving this relatively new feature, but struggling to get full buy in from my reviewers because the filename displayed in their email notification is an Adobe generated random name and not the name of the actually file you are sharing. How can you make sure that the review filename is the same as the name of the actual Indesign document?

    The attached is an example of 3 such emails.

    I don't understand why the filename is not replicated.
    ( I know that S4R saves the review PDF in the Artifacts folder – if I force change that, will…

  15. review

    Bis heute morgen hat die Funktion "erstellen eines Review" funktioniert.
    Heut Abend macht das Programm nichts mehr. Es kommt nur mehr eine "schwarze" Fläche.

  17. Share For Review, only getting shape tool and pin tool.

    In share for review, I only see the pin tool and the shape tool. All of the other reviewing tools that I should be seeing are missing. They appear briefly and then disappear.

    If the Share for Review was created using the previous version of InDesign – InDesign 2020 (v 15.1/v15.1.1/v15.1.2), then only 2 Tools are visible in the browser – Pin and Draw.

    The new Text Tools in Share for Review – Highlight, Strikethrough, and Replace are available ONLY if :
    1) Share for Review is initiated from InDesign 2021.
    2) Opening a document that was created in an earlier version and initiating Share for Review from InDesign 2021.
    3) For Share for Review created from InDesign 2020 (v 15.1/v15.1.1/v15.1.2), you click on the Update Link button in the Share for Review panel in InDesign 2021. (You may have to hit the Refresh button in the browser if the Review was already open there).

  18. Last updated stays on 'this week'.

    My version is 15.1.2

    It seemed to work before, but the 'timestamp' when I click on Update Link remains 'this week'. I remember before it said something like 'X minutes ago'.

  19. Misplaced pin icons and shapes in Share for Review

    Pins or shapes in Share for Review are always shown with misplaced icons or shape "borders". All browsers render it similarly. In Chrome, after reloading and clearing cache through DevTools, pin icons are changed to numbers and shapes disappear (in DevTools there is some error...). Btw, in Opera for Android, there are shown numbers by default. Using InDesign 15.1.1 for Windows, tried different files on laptot/desktop with the same results.

    About a week before I used the function for the first time and everything was fine, but I'm not sure if InDesign had the latest update.

    Working example: https://assets.adobe.com/id/urn:aaid:sc:US:f5b91a94-c27e-44bd-9b09-f46e662affc8?view=published
