  1. Indesign Book created PDF comments are not placed in right places

    Hi Team,

    We have used this plugin (PDF Comments) for last one month. We found that Indesign book pdf comments are not placed in right places. Next page comments are placed before page.

    Could you please look at this issue

    For your quick reference, I have attached the screenshot.

    Thanks & Regards,

  3. PDF comments: Delete <FEFF> marker after removal of all comments

    After choosing »Delete all comments« from the fly-out menu of the PDF comments panel at every position, where a comment was before the removal, a <FEFF> char is left behind, which shows up as a zero-width colon (:), when special characters are turned on.

    Since this is a useless char after deleting the comments, the <FEFF> should also be removed, when selecting the removal in the fly-out.

    <FEFF> shows up with XML tags, notes and index markers, so we can’t simply do a TEXT search for <FEFF> to remove it.
    BTW:
    \x{feff} doesn’t work in GREP search, which is kind…

  6. revisions are not showing

    When my collaborators comment with a pin everything works but when they highlight a text, I see the comment but 1 time out of 2 the highlighted text is not highlighted. So I can't see where my collaborator wants me to make changes.

  7. Error no se activa

    No se activa la opción de compartir para revisión

    y de la herramienta MANO es un problema que siempre se queda activada al seleccionarla a diferencia de Illustrator la herramienta mano al soltar la tecla se cambia a la herramienta de selección y eso es muy bueno

  8. PDF comment panel resets when moving back and forth to the doc

    The website is too awkward to search quickly, if this has been posted/mentioned before, so apologies if this has been covered.

    I'm working on a catalogue I have PDF Comments on, and I'm sourcing content from other ID files. When flicking back and forth, the PDF Comment panel resets back to the top and opens up each page tab, after I've minimised that page, because it's so long.

    It's making it really annoying to go from the cat to a doc, come back, and have to scroll down dozens of pages' worth of comments, to get back to where I…

  10. Mapping errors of PDF comments for deletion when applied to list items (CC 2020)

    PDF comments for deletion of list items get wrongly mapped to InDesign when importing to CC 2020; e.g. include the last character from previous list item if bullet point / numbering was included in selection to be deleted, or may be mapped to a completely wrong part of another list in the document (Although this is likely due to confusion by text duplication, it shouldn't happen nevertheless).

    Haven't tested with older versions of ID.

  11. Text disappears after hitting 'Accept' in PDF comments

    ID 15.0.3

    Just started getting our client to use PDF Comments (instead of printing, writing on, then B&W scanning, then emailing back), I've imported the comments, then hit 'Accept' over the text amends he's made, the text then deletes/disappears. There's no styling or rules or anything else applied, it's just straight text.

    Screen shot had 4 price points on, but after hitting accept, it's gone. If I change the price manually and leave any original text (to see what happens) such as the $ symbol, then hit 'Accept', the manually altered text stays, but the $ disappears.

  13. PDF Comment Loading in the Master Page

    We have recently updated to 2020 version. In the previous version when I load PDF comments in InDesign they appear in the pages where they are suppose to appear. Now, in the 2020 version, they appear in the Master Page. Why is it like this?

    Also may I suggest when copying text in the PDF Comments panel that the "Command+C" be activated as this is more instinctively than clicking the "Copy" button from the panel.

  14. No visable PDF comments in PDF Comments Window

    ID 15.1.1, Win10

    31.8.2020 The problem exist also in New-File Window: only the black window, one can see in the attachment

    After importing the comments from a PDF file there is nothing in the PDF Comments Window. Although the comments are visable in main text, I cannot accept them in PDF comments windows, because I don't see them there.

    I have the same problem with the main InDesign window: when no file is opened, I see only black flat, no icons of previously opened files, as it was in previous versions...

  17. InDesign 2020 • Script • PlaceMultiplePDF

    I've called a few times about this and this is the fastest way I've been shown to do Place MultiplePDF, resize pdf and fit proportionally:
    • Script
    • PlaceMultiplePDF
    • New document
    • Document Settings – deselect facing pages
    • Move master page to this document and apply to all pages
    • First page re-size PDF to margins
    • Fit Page Proportionally
    • CTRL ALT 4 to each page (document 898 pages)

    Can you come up with a script where you can re-size the pdf to the margins and fit the page proportionally? The CTRL ALT 4 is helpful but…

  19. PDF Comments

    I really like this feature and it is a big benefit to my workflow. However, I find the ability to cut or copy from the comments virtually impossible. Would be great if you guys could make this aspect more user-friendly.

    Many thanks and stay safe
