  2. Share for Review strikethrough & highlight from online edits aren't visible in InDesign

    InDesign Vs. 16 Share for Review: if the reviewer uses the strikethrough text or highlight option, I don't see these in my indesign doc. I can see the strikethrough text on the browser version, but the highlight disppears completely. The review comment is in both places, just not what it's referencing.

  3. Share Review not showing online "pins"

    The comments are marked on web as "Non Mapped Comments" while in Indesign they´re showed in right places!

  6. Share for Review fails to update

    No issue creating a Share for Review. However updating an existing Share for Review results in an endlessly spinning blue circle and the link does not update.

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  9. 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?

  10. 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,…

  11. Multiple Share for Review Issues

    I work with a team of 6 designers and we are all experiencing regular and multiple different issues with Share for Review – we are all using the latest version 2021 and are needing to try multiple things each time with varied results to get Share for Review to work – these include:
    1. Restarting Indesign
    2. Logging and in about of Adobe CC
    3. Trashing preferences
    4. Saving a file Copy

    Ths is extremely frustrating, wasting a lot of time and energy and money – I am sincerely hoping you are aware of all of these issues and are…

  12. 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.

  14. indesign review keeps reverting to resolved

    This happens very frequently.

    I will be going through user comments given online in the Indesign Review tab. As I do them I resolve them. This works fine.

    But then suddenly and randomly it will just decide to change my filter to show all resolved! Then all the old issues magically appear in the tab again until I go back to filter and unselect the Resolved button.

    Then it happens again. And again. It happens only when I go to change something in the document but it doesn't seem to matter what type of issue i'm doing. Replacing text. Deleting,…

  15. Share for Review broken in Chrome for Reviewers InDesign 16.1

    InDesign 16.1
    MacOS BigSur M1 Chip

    share for review worked for me in Chrome from my own account, but when I shared it with another user, the link did not allow them to open the review in their version of Chrome. Firefox and Safari worked fine.

  18. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. share for review is not working consistently

    If I try updating a share for review link the share for review panel freezes as shown in the attached image and nothing happens.
    I have to close and reopen the indesign file for the Share for Review to update the link, but it only works once or twice, before it begins to freeze again.

    This issue was fixed in InDesign v15.1.2 and later.

    Please update to the latest available versions and see if the issue(s) you were facing earlier has got resolved.

    Remember to check how you are signed into your CC account and if need be, sign out and sign in again. Since Share for Review is a service and dependent on your login to your Adobe ID account, it is important that CCD app is working well with your credentials.
