  1. 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…

  2. Share for Review access settings - Public Link not available

    I am trying to use the new Share for Review option. As outlined here, I should be able to switch the access options from invitation only to public which should give me the option to have people without an Adobe account review the content by simply inputting a password for access. However, I cannot switch from invitation only to public as I simply have the invitation only option as a fixed option and no dropdown to choose from. Is there an option somewhere that I need to enable first so I can publicly share these files for review? As of…

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

    The issue has been fixed in the latest Prerelease Build (# 15) of InDesign.

    To make sure that the fix works correctly, you can Delete the App Prefs & Cache from the following locations (replace yourname with your personal name):

    on Mac:
    /Users/yourname/Library/Caches/Adobe InDesign /Users/yourname/Library/Preferences/Adobe InDesign /Users/yourname/Library/Caches/CSXS/cep_cache on

    on Win: C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\InDesign
    C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Local\Adobe\InDesign C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Local\Temp\cep_cache

    Also Sign-out and Sign-in back again into your Creative Cloud Desktop app.

  7. 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.
