  1. Public Share for Review requires Login

    Previously, I have been able to generate a public, password protected link to send to my reviewers, and they have been able to see the document without logging in. This is certainly my preferred workflow.

    When they tried to view a document today, it now requires a login. Even with the password disabled, it requires a login.

    Allowing public comments is turned on, but the login prompt appears even before the document is displayed.

    Was this intentional with the latest release?

  2. InDesign Partage pour révision ne s'affiche pas en ligne si on est connecté é ADOBE CC

    Le lien URL Partage pour révision ne s'affiche pas dans le navigateur si on est connecté à Adobe CC .
    Il faut ainsi se déconnecter de ADOBE pour pouvoir voir le lien URL de partage de révision et ainsi faire les commentaires.
    C'est très ennuyeux !
    Il serait bien qu'avant de lancer des fonctionnalités, qu'elles soient testées en amont.

  3. Share for Review files not updating

    I'm having issues getting an existing Share for Review file to update after making changes. When I click "Update Link," it just spins and never resolves.

    Here's the link to the original forum post containing the information needed.

  4. Share for Review - Not Working

    I have tried share for review both with clients (who have CC) and with my team members (who all also have CC) and have been unsuccessful every time. When selecting the link that is sent to the users email, they are then redirected to their "Synced Files" and not the review link.

    This has happened whether we share it as private, public w/ password, or public. We have also tried logging out of CC and back in with no luck.

  5. Share for Review breaks when INDD files are duplicated for versioning

    Everyone I know who uses InDesign duplicates files regularly to create various versions of documents. Share for Review seems to have a major problem with this. When I create multiple versions of a document by duplicating an original, InDesign cannot seem to differentiate between the various versions, even if they have different names and are completely separate files. The only solution seems to be if you have only one document open at a time and break the link to start over. It's maddening, as I have 9 versions of important documents that I need to share for review, and when…

  6. Share for Review from InDesign Book 'artifact' error

    When I try to share chapters from a book for review the Share for Review either doesn't function beyond clicking the 'Share for Review' 'Create New Review' or populates the details with the wrong file name and then fails to proceed (giving an 'artefact' error.

    I solved it by doing the chapters one at a time with no other chapters open and the InDesign Book closed - but it took me a few hours to work this out.

    Even when doing the chapters separately their Title Field of the Share for Review document is sometimes the previous document's name and…

  7. Share for review feature box shows up blank

    1/10 times it works, but most of the time it does not. I have tried logging in and out of my accounts and restarting my computer, but it still isn't working for me today.

  8. Share for review

    Hello, am I being dumb? I can share individual files, but when I try and share a book, “share for Review” is greyed out and the Review panel is black.

  10. Share Review Highlight tool not showing on the desktop version

    I am using Version 16.0.1 x 64 and decided to test Share Review. I noticed that the highlight tool Is only showing in the online version. When I activate the comments on the desktop Version I see that there should be a comment on that page but doesn't show the text to be highlighted. (I tried Changing the colour of the highlight and still Not showing) - I am leaving the comment as a guest.

  13. share for review isn't working for client

    My client gets: File preview error. File preview not available, please reload to try again.
    They can see the document icon to click on in the "Shared with me" but when they click on it, it gives the the: File preview not available, please reload to try again. They are on Windows if that helps. It appears to be working for everybody else that it was shared with.
    Update Resaved file with new name, reshared, all is working!

  20. '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…
