  1. Issue Not Resolved: Cannot Implement and/or Copy Any Review Comments

    This was previously mentioned with multiple votes and then marked as resolved by admin. However, multiple comments show that this bug is CRITICAL and NOT FIXED with the latest update.

    Share for Review is essentially useless at the moment since there's no way to either A) download the PDF with edits, B) implement a change from the comment, or C) copy and paste the comment from the review panel.

    Please fix, these features all work when sharing an exported PDF for review and then importing comments. Absolutely zero excuse that this expensive of a software cannot solve this and then…

  2. Indesign 2024: 2024 version files open as Read Only - but only sometimes.

    When opening files, created in earlier versions but already opened and saved as newer version, often, but not always, open as READ ONLY. Of course I'm not checking every time I open a file to see if it's read only because I've already updated the file to version 2024 and only realize when I try to save. PLEASE FIX THIS

  3. Objects transformed with the Shear-Tool aren't displayed correctly in Review and with Acrobat Extension for Chrome

    In my corporate design, I use rectangles with a shear angle of 45°. However, these rectangles are displayed incorrectly in the Review and in the Chrome browser with the Acrobat extension. Such rectangles are then not displayed at an angle, but as a larger rectangle. In the two uploaded images you can see the comparison of how it is designed in Indesign and how it then looks in the Review.
    Correcting this display error is very important to me. Of course, I could also draw the slanted rectangle with the path tool. But this is very impractical because I can't…

  4. Correct but wrong German translation for Review Panel

    The German translation for »Share for Review« is »Für Review freigeben«. I do not understand why you kept the »Review« in English, but that's not my point here and could be discussed somewhere else.

    There is the Review panel, which can be opened via Window > Comments > Review. In German it should be named »Review« as well, because you did not rename the functionality. Right?

    But, hey, the panels name ist »Überprüfen«. Correct translation, but inconsistent, as you might agree to me.

    So please, change »Überprüfen« to »Review« or change »Review« everywhere else to »Überprüfen«.

  5. Link Name as Page Title in Share for Review

    I have no idea why it isn’t set up this way, as the title of "Link Name" certainly makes it sound like that would be the page title, but instead I find that every single document I share for review has the page title of "Files | Adobe Creative Cloud" which is supper annoying when I have to share a few different proofs in a messaging app. Messaging apps (like Skype) convert the link to a card that features the page title in bold, so I end up with a series of links that all look the exact same, with…

  6. Share for Review: there was an error updating the artifact. NOT updating!

    Adobe InDesign CC 2024

    I am working a magazine. The size is pretty large, lots of pictures. I was able to create the Share for Review link, and share it. But I am unable to update. Although, I copy the link, open the address in Google Chrome and my edits show. When I mark a pin resolved, it does not show in my indesign file.

  7. Share for review comments moved after file update

    Comments are no longer in the correct position after update to INDD file.... I entered a few line returns and replaced a space with a non-breaking space after a few words, going manually through the search and replace. Going backwards with the edits doesn't help.

  10. The link is set to "anyone with link can comment" but it's still requiring a password

    I have created a share for review link for others to comment on, however it's requiring them to log into an account even though it's set to "Anyone with the link can comment". This was not the case before, others could comment as a guest. Using InDesign 2024 v19.0.1

  11. Share for Review has ISSUES

    I have been using the Share for Review feature for almost two years now for my employer to review documents that I am creating for them. I use it almost daily and never had any issues until the updates that came a month or two ago.

    Since the Share for Review feature was updated I can...

    1. No longer copy text from the comments that are made to paste into my document. This is troublesome because I am generally laying out curriculum that has been written and there is constant text edits being made during our review process, so I was…

  12. update to v24

    For as long as I can remember, dating back to the early single-digit versions of Adobe products, it was advised to make separate backups of user settings that were often found in obscure directories on a user's own computer. I dared to trust Adobe this time around, hoping that the update to version 24 of InDesign and its option to delete old versions, would respect the user settings that I so painfully put together. FAIL. Adobe failed to maintain them and deleted them from existence. Adobe should be putting a disclaimer on their update process to prompt users of all…

  14. based on previous file

    I love the review function. however I ususally base my work on another indesignfile and i always end up with overriding the review which is soo horrible.
    fex file1.ind gets copied and the copied file becomes file2.ind. when i make review in file2.ind its based on file1.ind reviewlink. i change name and woops i messed up comments for the file1.ind cuz file2.ind ended up there. then the reviewfile is broken and i always get an error as a plus so i need to create a new reviewlink

    I wish that everynew document would get blank there creating a new reviewlink…

  15. Share for Review is very buggy

    In InDesign lately when I Share for Review the following things happen often:
    1. InDesign thinks that the document I've shared (and for which I've received feedback) is NOT shared. I know it is.
    2. I can no longer highlight a comment and copy it to paste it into the actual document.
    3. When I click on a comment it will take me to a page/spread but there's no pin/highlighted text/etc. to inform me where on the spread the change needs to be implemented.
    4. I get a message that InDesign "cannot load comments" no matter how many times or…

  16. Copy and Paste from Share for Review Comments panel not working

    You used to be able to copy/paste directly from the REVIEW panel COMMENT when you receive feedback. Now it won't allow you to copy what someone has reviewed and suggested as replacement text. This is very important as it makes it much more efficient to copy it from within InDesign rather than swapping between screens to do it from the browser. Please can you fix this! Thank you!

  18. Gray boxes behind photos in Share for Review

    I have been using the new Share for Review for the last little while and am enjoying receiving feedback directly on my documents for import into InDesign. However, I recently went to a published file and noticed that all of the images in my design now have a light gray square behind them. Additionally, the colours and blending on some of the images are all off or look odd. The gray boxes appear on all of my previously uploaded documents, and I've checked from multiple computers and they all appear to show these boxes.

    Please refer to this thread for…

  19. colors desaturating and layer effect discrepancy

    InDesign version 18.4

    Make indesign file with layer effects (multiply, overlay, etc.) in CMYK. Click Share > Send for Review. Result in the browser is desaturated and layer effect is not working as displayed in working file.

    The file that is previewed in Share for Review site is both desaturated and displaying the layer effects differently than my working file. I even exported my working file and it exported as expected. My document is in CMYK as it is a print piece. I have not had trouble with the preview before. It has always displayed accurately in past print pieces.

  20. got stuck

    Not an idea, just a problem I have.
    Not sure this is the place to write for a solution
    Working on Adobe InDesign 2022 17.4 MacOS
    Steps to reproduce the issues: command+q
    Expected result: that the software closes. Even if it doesn't save, and will undo everything it did and let me open the file again and work
    Actual result: Shows a message (I've attached a screenshot)
    I waited a few hours
    My computer is boiling and I have a deadline
