  2. 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

  5. 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…

  7. 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?

  8. 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.

  9. '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…

  14. 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.

  17. 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…

  18. 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.
    Warum funktioiert es nicht mehr?

  20. 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
