  1. 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,…

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Share for review comments disappear when updating link

    I am currently working with a 102 page document that is shared with several customers. Once I make edits and I update the link, all comments from myself and the customers disappear. Even after restarting my computer, updating InDesign, signing out and signing in of Creative Cloud, the problem still persists. I am working on a MAC and InDesign version 17.2.1. This problem is only happening with one project file, and I've also tried moving all of the pages to a new document with no luck. I appreciate any help.

  7. Share for Review Unreliable

    I love the share for review function, however it is proving too unreliable to be used in a professional setting.

    Here are the issues that my team and I encountered on a regular basis:

    Review comment window is blank
    Updating sharing link freezes program
    Review page in browser won't load (spinning circle of death)
    Document in browser glitches and jumps around when trying to navigate
    

    These are pretty serious issues that need to be resolved. I like the innovation, but in order to make it part of our process, reliability is the most important aspect.

  8. Share for Review

    After sending out a "Share for Review" in InDesign, I went back to the file after people made comments and when I go to the review, the only option is to create a new review. But if i go to my email notification and click on the link, I can see the review that way. I did not "save as" to the file.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  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. 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?

  15. 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.

  16. 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…

  17. Share for Review -Disappearing tools

    I have Indesign 16.0.
    On my first test of share for review, all the tools appeared.
    after saving it they disappeared. Then I saw that save as function disrupts the process.
    Then I signed out of my account and rebooted.
    When I signed back in the tools were there again.
    I opened another document (made in InDesign 16.0) and the tools were gone.

    THIS IS SO FRUSTRATING!
    How do I get the tools to stay consistently?

  19. Review is good start but needs a lot of work

    Intermittent issue with review panel appearing blank, needs restart to refresh it.

    Document and panel comments jump around making it painful to use in a long document. Panel seems to constantly refresh which appears to be causing the issue? Today can't see any comments or update from my side (see screenshot)

    It would be nice to have comments panel work as the pdf review
