  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. share for review isn't working for client

    My client gets: File preview error. File preview not available, please reload to try again.
    They can see the document icon to click on in the "Shared with me" but when they click on it, it gives the the: File preview not available, please reload to try again. They are on Windows if that helps. It appears to be working for everybody else that it was shared with.
    Update Resaved file with new name, reshared, all is working!

  7. Share for Review

    Share for Review does not seem to be working even after another update.

    I sent an invitation by "Invite Only". My client received an email with a link and the only 2 options available for my client are "Sign in with an Adobe ID" – 99% of my clients will not HAVE or NEED an Adobe ID.

    The second option is "Enter a password if one has been shared with you." Unfortunately, I was not given the option to set up a password. However, when posting publicly I could.

    And lastly, when I update the file (link), there was no…

    5. Open Share for Review panel.

    SOLUTION 2

  10. 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.

  14. '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…

  15. review

    ID 16.0
    When I receive a replacement comment I find it unfortunate that it is not possible to validate the replacement in inDesign and that it is done automatically. Same for deletion.
    it would really save time

  16. review

    ID 16.0 CC2021 Any unresolved comments from one version to another of the share are lost.
    Unresolved comments should continue to be shared. Otherwise it limits the collaboration in real time.

    It seems like the "update a link" buttun makes a new review
    rather than just updating the file online.

  18. 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).

  19. 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'.

  20. 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.
