  1. 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…

  4. Share for Review – Filename for the reviewer

    I am loving this relatively new feature, but struggling to get full buy in from my reviewers because the filename displayed in their email notification is an Adobe generated random name and not the name of the actually file you are sharing. How can you make sure that the review filename is the same as the name of the actual Indesign document?

    The attached is an example of 3 such emails.

    I don't understand why the filename is not replicated.
    ( I know that S4R saves the review PDF in the Artifacts folder – if I force change that, will…

  8. 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,…

  12. 'Share for review' showing name of a previously shared document, hasn't recognised which document to share

    InDesign 16.0
    Mac OS 10.15.7
    Chrome Version 86.0.4240.183

    Share for review should respond to whichever tab is in focus

    Steps to recreate.


    1. Have 2 InDesign documents you want to share for review

    2. Open one of the files

    3. Go to share and review, see the filename populated in the panel's field

    4. Create the share

    5. Open the other InDesign document

    6. Go to share and review

    Expected: Document that is in focus in the open tab is the file that is being shared

    Actual: Previous file's name is still populated. Changing it and sharing creates an error.

    And now this has happened, restarting…

  13. review

    ID 16.0
    When I receive a replacement comment I find it unfortunate that it is not possible to validate the replacement in inDesign and that it is done automatically. Same for deletion.
    it would really save time

  14. review

    ID 16.0 CC2021 Any unresolved comments from one version to another of the share are lost.
    Unresolved comments should continue to be shared. Otherwise it limits the collaboration in real time.

    It seems like the "update a link" buttun makes a new review
    rather than just updating the file online.

  16. 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.

  18. Share For Review, only getting shape tool and pin tool.

    In share for review, I only see the pin tool and the shape tool. All of the other reviewing tools that I should be seeing are missing. They appear briefly and then disappear.

    If the Share for Review was created using the previous version of InDesign – InDesign 2020 (v 15.1/v15.1.1/v15.1.2), then only 2 Tools are visible in the browser – Pin and Draw.

    The new Text Tools in Share for Review – Highlight, Strikethrough, and Replace are available ONLY if :
    1) Share for Review is initiated from InDesign 2021.
    2) Opening a document that was created in an earlier version and initiating Share for Review from InDesign 2021.
    3) For Share for Review created from InDesign 2020 (v 15.1/v15.1.1/v15.1.2), you click on the Update Link button in the Share for Review panel in InDesign 2021. (You may have to hit the Refresh button in the browser if the Review was already open there).

  19. Last updated stays on 'this week'.

    My version is 15.1.2

    It seemed to work before, but the 'timestamp' when I click on Update Link remains 'this week'. I remember before it said something like 'X minutes ago'.

  20. Share for review Icon is hiding content.

    The share for review icon is hiding my text in InDesign.

    Often I get text updated and users place the icon on top of the words.
    When I want to update the text, it is very difficult to see the text to update as the icon is placed right on top. Would be nice if I could move the icon a little.

    Thanks.
