  1. export to pdf destination folder changes after creating "share for review" copy

    After creating "share for review" copy, when I try to export to PDF, the "save to" destination folder changes to: C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\Adobe\InDesign\Version 16.0-ME\en_US\Caches\Artifact
    I guess it's becuase the "share for review" feature creates also a PDF copy of the book. but it's annoying to be forced to navigate again and again to my project's folder.
    i'm using the latest version 16.3 (middle east locale). windows 10.

  4. export review comments

    I previously used Adobe DC to send design proofs for review. I LOVE THE NEW InDesign option. Of course, it has a few bugs, but overall I love the UI right in Indesign.

    However, I would like to export comments for my records and documentation. In case there is a discrepancy in a final product, I prefer to keep an archive of comments related to a project. I do not see a simple way to do this.

  6. Why the strikethrough & highlight functions are hidden?

    Why are the strikethrough & highlight functions of share for review hidden?
    Hi. I was really looking forward to the ability to use the Share for Review feature. I find it an immense help for reviewing and proofreading publications.
    But when I start using it, the strikethrough & highlight functions do not appear in the browsers.
    However, looking in more detail, I see that the options are there, but they are hidden.
    I attach images
    Can you tell me how to solve this problem?
    I am at your disposal for any questions.
    Thank you

  8. Making edits in Share for Review is painstakingly SLLLLOOOOWWWWWWW!

    When I click "Resolved", it seems to me that syncing to web might be making it slow. Maybe don't update to web until you're done making your edits. I'm working on a 500-page book. Everything about InDesign for this book is tremendous. Share for Review is by far the weakest link.

  9. Share for Review broken in Chrome for Reviewers InDesign 16.1

    InDesign 16.1
    MacOS BigSur M1 Chip

    share for review worked for me in Chrome from my own account, but when I shared it with another user, the link did not allow them to open the review in their version of Chrome. Firefox and Safari worked fine.

  12. Locating the correct pin

    When working on corrections to non-linear blocks of text (infographics, maps etc) or where the client corrections are not in order, it would be useful if the colour of the pins changed when the comment was selected

  14. Public Share for Review requires Login

    Previously, I have been able to generate a public, password protected link to send to my reviewers, and they have been able to see the document without logging in. This is certainly my preferred workflow.

    When they tried to view a document today, it now requires a login. Even with the password disabled, it requires a login.

    Allowing public comments is turned on, but the login prompt appears even before the document is displayed.

    Was this intentional with the latest release?

  15. InDesign Partage pour révision ne s'affiche pas en ligne si on est connecté é ADOBE CC

    Le lien URL Partage pour révision ne s'affiche pas dans le navigateur si on est connecté à Adobe CC .
    Il faut ainsi se déconnecter de ADOBE pour pouvoir voir le lien URL de partage de révision et ainsi faire les commentaires.
    C'est très ennuyeux !
    Il serait bien qu'avant de lancer des fonctionnalités, qu'elles soient testées en amont.

  16. Share for Review files not updating

    I'm having issues getting an existing Share for Review file to update after making changes. When I click "Update Link," it just spins and never resolves.

    Here's the link to the original forum post containing the information needed.

  19. Share Review Highlight tool not showing on the desktop version

    I am using Version 16.0.1 x 64 and decided to test Share Review. I noticed that the highlight tool Is only showing in the online version. When I activate the comments on the desktop Version I see that there should be a comment on that page but doesn't show the text to be highlighted. (I tried Changing the colour of the highlight and still Not showing) - I am leaving the comment as a guest.
