  4. 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,…

  7. '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…

  8. 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

  9. 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.

  11. 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).

  12. 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.

  13. Share for review: drawing annotations wonky

    When drawing annotations in Share for Review, the tool doesn't draw where my cursor is, and the line I have drawn moves as I move the cursor.

  14. Misplaced pin icons and shapes in Share for Review

    Pins or shapes in Share for Review are always shown with misplaced icons or shape "borders". All browsers render it similarly. In Chrome, after reloading and clearing cache through DevTools, pin icons are changed to numbers and shapes disappear (in DevTools there is some error...). Btw, in Opera for Android, there are shown numbers by default. Using InDesign 15.1.1 for Windows, tried different files on laptot/desktop with the same results.

    About a week before I used the function for the first time and everything was fine, but I'm not sure if InDesign had the latest update.

    Working example: https://assets.adobe.com/id/urn:aaid:sc:US:f5b91a94-c27e-44bd-9b09-f46e662affc8?view=published

  15. Share for Review Comments Sign In Bug

    My idea is to let people comment on Share for Review for Indesign even if they don't have an Apple, Google, or Facebook account. Not sure why Adobe wouldn't allow people to enter their email as a guest to make comments? Makes no sense to me.

    As a ‘Reviewer’, you do not need to have Apple/Google/Facebook account. You can Review as a Guest.

    The ‘Designer’, when he creates and sends the link to you (the Reviewer), has to create a ‘Public Link’ in InDesign. When you as the reviewer open that Public Link, you can Review and Comment as a ‘Guest’.

    Hope it helps and you will be able to use Share for Review feature and find it useful.

  16. InDesign 15.11 - Share for review: LINKS panel does not appear, even when Window shows it is active.

    Share for Review only works in Advanced platform, but controls disappear at top. Link window does not appear even when selected. Switched to Book platform and got controls back, but Share for Review comments disappeared.

  17. Share for Review access settings - Public Link not available

    I am trying to use the new Share for Review option. As outlined here, I should be able to switch the access options from invitation only to public which should give me the option to have people without an Adobe account review the content by simply inputting a password for access. However, I cannot switch from invitation only to public as I simply have the invitation only option as a fixed option and no dropdown to choose from. Is there an option somewhere that I need to enable first so I can publicly share these files for review? As of…

  18. Share for review annotations not showing up in InDesign

    In using the new Share for Review this morning from today's update to v15.1 we did a test document that included some drawing annotations. The comments showed up as expected in InDesign but not the drawing annotations. I have tried toggling on and off the eye in the review panel and nothing happens like it does in the web browser.
