  1. 'Share for review' showing name of a previously shared document, hasn't recognised which document to share

    InDesign 16.0
    Mac OS 10.15.7
    Chrome Version 86.0.4240.183

    Share for review should respond to whichever tab is in focus

    Steps to recreate.

    1. Have 2 InDesign documents you want to share for review
    2. Open one of the files
    3. Go to share and review, see the filename populated in the panel's field
    4. Create the share
    5. Open the other InDesign document
    6. Go to share and review

    Expected: Document that is in focus in the open tab is the file that is being shared

    Actual: Previous file's name is still populated. Changing it and sharing creates an error.

    And now this has happened, restarting…

  2. 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).

  3. 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'.

  4. 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

  5. Link Name as Page Title in Share for Review

    I have no idea why it isn’t set up this way, as the title of "Link Name" certainly makes it sound like that would be the page title, but instead I find that every single document I share for review has the page title of "Files | Adobe Creative Cloud" which is supper annoying when I have to share a few different proofs in a messaging app. Messaging apps (like Skype) convert the link to a card that features the page title in bold, so I end up with a series of links that all look the exact same, with…

  6. Share for Review: there was an error updating the artifact. NOT updating!

    Adobe InDesign CC 2024

    I am working a magazine. The size is pretty large, lots of pictures. I was able to create the Share for Review link, and share it. But I am unable to update. Although, I copy the link, open the address in Google Chrome and my edits show. When I mark a pin resolved, it does not show in my indesign file.

  7. Share for review comments moved after file update

    Comments are no longer in the correct position after update to INDD file.... I entered a few line returns and replaced a space with a non-breaking space after a few words, going manually through the search and replace. Going backwards with the edits doesn't help.

  10. Share for Review has ISSUES

    I have been using the Share for Review feature for almost two years now for my employer to review documents that I am creating for them. I use it almost daily and never had any issues until the updates that came a month or two ago.

    Since the Share for Review feature was updated I can...

    1. No longer copy text from the comments that are made to paste into my document. This is troublesome because I am generally laying out curriculum that has been written and there is constant text edits being made during our review process, so I was…

  12. based on previous file

    I love the review function. however I ususally base my work on another indesignfile and i always end up with overriding the review which is soo horrible.
    fex file1.ind gets copied and the copied file becomes file2.ind. when i make review in file2.ind its based on file1.ind reviewlink. i change name and woops i messed up comments for the file1.ind cuz file2.ind ended up there. then the reviewfile is broken and i always get an error as a plus so i need to create a new reviewlink

    I wish that everynew document would get blank there creating a new reviewlink…

  14. colors desaturating and layer effect discrepancy

    InDesign version 18.4

    Make indesign file with layer effects (multiply, overlay, etc.) in CMYK. Click Share > Send for Review. Result in the browser is desaturated and layer effect is not working as displayed in working file.

    The file that is previewed in Share for Review site is both desaturated and displaying the layer effects differently than my working file. I even exported my working file and it exported as expected. My document is in CMYK as it is a print piece. I have not had trouble with the preview before. It has always displayed accurately in past print pieces.

  15. got stuck

    Not an idea, just a problem I have.
    Not sure this is the place to write for a solution
    Working on Adobe InDesign 2022 17.4 MacOS
    Steps to reproduce the issues: command+q
    Expected result: that the software closes. Even if it doesn't save, and will undo everything it did and let me open the file again and work
    Actual result: Shows a message (I've attached a screenshot)
    I waited a few hours
    My computer is boiling and I have a deadline

  18. Review Panel

    I'm really enjoying the "Share for Review" feature in InDesign, but I am experiencing some annoying bugs in the Review panel.

    Each time I click on an edit/comment in the Review panel, the program zooms out to fit the whole page in view. Every single time, I have to zoom back in to where I was before so I can get a closer view of what I'm doing.

    Also, the Filter settings keep adjusting without my input. For example, if I apply a proposed edit (like deleting part of a sentence) before marking it as resolved, that comment/edit moves down…

  19. Errors when using the Share for Review feature with highlight, strike-through and replace text.

    I have the InDesign v. 18.0
    Everytime I use the Share for Review feature, no matter where I highlight, strike-through or replace the text, the place where I want to make the suggestion is never accurate. If I try to highlight a text, when I see it the InDesign program and click the review in the Review window, it just brings me to a different page. The highlighted text isn't even highlighted at all. Same with strike-through and replace text. Of course, I can see the comment within the Review window, but when I click it, it usually brings up…

  20. Share for Review - Interactive PDF 'Jump to Page' feature not working

    Hey,

    I have a contents page in my Interactive PDF, that when you click an item on it, it jumps to the corresponding page in the PDF. However, on the Share to Review site, it jumps to the wrong page - always to the page after the one that it should jump to. When I export the PDF normally, it functions as expected, it is only on the Share to Review site that it doesn't work.

    Was wondering if a fix could be found for this, as we are having to explain this to clients every time we send a…
