Imported drawn PDF comments don't adjust in ID layout
- ID 14
- Import a batch of PDF comments into layout, including edits made using the Oval and Arrow tools to show placement. Then proceed to apply edits, thereby adjusting the location of the text on the page.
- I would expect the drawn edits to be tagged to a location in the text, and to track with the copy as it reflows. If this feature is going to be available, that is.
- Actual result: the markup remains on the page at the coordinates at which it was imported. By the time to you get to that location, if you've been making changes to the preceding text, the markup now overlays entirely different text. See screen dump with edits made in PDF shown in Acrobat on right, ID layout with imported comments at left.
Importing PDF comments into a live document is tough to implement, I understand that. But this capability as found in ID 2019 is not ready for prime time (this is the fourth major problem I have reported so far -- there are others as well).
Perhaps you could offer a choice to implement PDF edits from the back of the file/end of the story backward to avoid orphaning drawn edits because of text reflow.
