Unable to Import PDF Comments from Acrobat 2019 Shared Review

PDFs with shared Reviews running off the Adobe Document Cloud are not able to import comments into InDesign.

Since Acrobat 2019, we are no longer able to use our own review server. There's now a big blue button to share the review using the Adobe Document Cloud. While this simplifies using Shared Reviews, the review PDF is now hosted and maintained by Adobe. Then, there is no longer a way to import the comments into InDesign.

To import a PDF's Shared Review Comments, InDesign requires access to the copy of the PDF containing the comments. With Acrobat 2019, this copy has been moved to the Adobe Document Cloud and is inaccessible even by the originating user. If the user attempts to save a local copy, he is told that the copy will be saved WITHOUT comments.

    This makes really no sense. It would be cool to export an InDesign document directly to the review process.
