  2. indesign review keeps reverting to resolved

    This happens very frequently.

    I will be going through user comments given online in the Indesign Review tab. As I do them I resolve them. This works fine.

    But then suddenly and randomly it will just decide to change my filter to show all resolved! Then all the old issues magically appear in the tab again until I go back to filter and unselect the Resolved button.

    Then it happens again. And again. It happens only when I go to change something in the document but it doesn't seem to matter what type of issue i'm doing. Replacing text. Deleting,…

  3. 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.

  4. 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?

  6. Multiple Share for Review Issues

    I work with a team of 6 designers and we are all experiencing regular and multiple different issues with Share for Review – we are all using the latest version 2021 and are needing to try multiple things each time with varied results to get Share for Review to work – these include:
    1. Restarting Indesign
    2. Logging and in about of Adobe CC
    3. Trashing preferences
    4. Saving a file Copy

    Ths is extremely frustrating, wasting a lot of time and energy and money – I am sincerely hoping you are aware of all of these issues and are…

  7. 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. 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

  10. 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.

  12. 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

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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,…

  16. "Share for Review" lost for documents accessed via UNC paths

    Indesign 16.2.1 won't maintain the link between the indesign document (on a server) and the "Shared for Review" online file if the Indesign document was opened via a UNC path when you make the "share for review" link.

    (Windows 10 - Indesign 16.2.1 x64)

  17. Comment pins move in spread with content

    At the moment, pins on content in a story do not move with that text if the text ends up being pushed onto another page. This means we end up with seemingly random pins floating on the page.

    Please allow pins to remain bound to their original location as text moves and flows into other pages.

  18. Share for Review breaks when INDD files are duplicated for versioning

    Everyone I know who uses InDesign duplicates files regularly to create various versions of documents. Share for Review seems to have a major problem with this. When I create multiple versions of a document by duplicating an original, InDesign cannot seem to differentiate between the various versions, even if they have different names and are completely separate files. The only solution seems to be if you have only one document open at a time and break the link to start over. It's maddening, as I have 9 versions of important documents that I need to share for review, and when…

  19. 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.
