  1. "Share for review" somehow linked to old file

    Had an older file that was Shared for Review and used it as a template. Saved the file under a different name, another user made some changes to the file, and this other user then Shared for Review. But the Share for Review under the new file says "You cannot access comments because another user has an active review for this document". But if i open the review under the newer file it takes me to the old file. Neither of us can see the comments under REVIEW in InDesign. We can see the comments if we go to the…

  2. Share for review automatically loads when opening a file

    I have am using version 16.4. Every time that I open a file, a Share for Review pops up on the screen. I have NEVER shared an InDesign document for review with this feature. Even if I click it away, as soon as I open another document (2 files now open), the Share for Review pops up again. How do I stop this from loading every single time? I just want to get to my documents without any slow down, and am frustrated that I can't find anything in any of the menus to turn this off.

  3. Review Link Lost

    I found a bug with the latest Indesign v.16.4.

    STEPS:

    1. Review link from my indesign file created.

    2. Editors made comments on the review file.

    3. Two months later - opening the source Indesign file the review link was lost. The file did not retain a review link was already generated and asked to establish another one.


    NOTE: No adjustments where made to the file and no comments where ported over to the original source file. It simply forgot the link association.

  4. Broken layout in review panel

    Using InDesign 16.4 - Windows 10 21H1 19043.1237

    The layout of the review panel is broken, apparently since the 16.4 update.

    Clicking on a note sends all the content on the edge of the panel, hiding most of it (as shown on the attached image).

    Changing the size of the panel (even slightly) puts everything back in place, but clicking again on a note breaks everything again. And so on.

  5. Share for Review Bugs

    We recently piloted using the "Share for Review" feature and have encountered a number of issues. Any help to solve these issues would all me to use this feature.
    -Login - a number of our pilot users had to log in twice in order to open the link (organizational accounts - one on firefox, one on chrome). Does anyone else see this issue? Are there any solutions?
    -Comments seem to be organized by page by time comment was posted. This not like Adobe Acrobat which organizes comments by page by location on page the edit/comment exists (I believe it is…

  6. Share for Review error message

    I am using Indesign CC 16.0.1 and I am trying to use Share for Review—I have created a simple letter sized document with shapes and filler text. When I click "Share for Review—Create" I just get the error message included below. I have tried with multiple documents over the last few weeks—I have restarted, signed in and out of CC...no change.

  8. Scrolling loop

    I have a scrolling bug in the share for review feature. Even in a small file of 10 pages, when scrolling too quickly up or down. The scroll gets stuck in some kind of loop, only reloading the page seems to solve the problem. Tried on 2 different macbook pro's and an Imac running Big Sur and High Sierra.

    In the attached video, you first see me scrolling 'gently' which doesn't cause any problems, but after 'flicking' the mouse pad / magic mouse a few times it gets stuck in this loop.

  9. Export for review problem

    My InDesign is up to date to V16.4

    When i press the share for review option, it stops uploading around 50% and I have the error message in the screenshot. Once I have this error message, the "share for review" options is not available anymore. There is only a blue circle turning for ever.

    I don't know what i am doing wrong as i am following very steps online

  10. Share for review comments in master page

    Currently working on a 36 page magazine and noticed that some 'Share for review' comments end up on the Master Page in InDesign. When I view the comments online, I see them grouped on the right spread, but if I click the comment to see where it actually is pinned, nothing shows on the pages. Guess this is a bug?

  11. 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.

    The fix of the issue is now available in the latest InDesign 2022(v17.0.0.96). We recommend you upgrade to the latest version for the fix.

    If you are unable to see the update, go to the Creative Cloud application and click on the context menu on the top right and click on Check for App Updates.

  15. 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.

  17. 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

  20. 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.
