  3. Share Review not showing online "pins"

    The comments are marked on web as "Non Mapped Comments" while in Indesign they´re showed in right places!

  4. Share for Review strikethrough & highlight from online edits aren't visible in InDesign

    InDesign Vs. 16 Share for Review: if the reviewer uses the strikethrough text or highlight option, I don't see these in my indesign doc. I can see the strikethrough text on the browser version, but the highlight disppears completely. The review comment is in both places, just not what it's referencing.

  6. Share for Review link creation

    I click on share to review. When I go to update the link, the wheel just spins and spins. It gets stuck and will not update my link. I've tried signing in and out of creative cloud, which has worked before, but it isn't working now. I can't get the latest version of my document to my client because it won't update.

  7. Share for Review: Image Quality

    Can we have an option where Share > Share for Review has a high-quality view as opposed to the low-res preview (see file attached- Review (left) and Original (right)) please?

    Share for Review is to quickly share a design that is still a work-in-progress with the Reviewer(s) for quick feedback. Since the review opens in a browser for the reviewer, it has to load quickly even on slow networks, that’s why the image quality has been kept low deliberately so that the page loads quickly without long wait times. Using high-res views will slow down the loading of pages in the browser considerably, marring the experience.

    Hope this helps.

  8. Share for Review SYNC Broken

    I use "Share" > "Share for Review" on a Program for review by multiple departments for edits. I received notifications of over 200 edits, but upon opening the InDesign file to begin changes, the "Window" > "Comments" > "Review" Panel data is empty and again says "Create Review".

    So the connection from my online review and the source InDesign is broken. Additionally, there is no option to save that online version as a pdf to import the comments via that option in "Window" > "Comments" > "PDF Comments"

  9. Multiple Share for Review Issues

    I work with a team of 6 designers and we are all experiencing regular and multiple different issues with Share for Review – we are all using the latest version 2021 and are needing to try multiple things each time with varied results to get Share for Review to work – these include:
    1. Restarting Indesign
    2. Logging and in about of Adobe CC
    3. Trashing preferences
    4. Saving a file Copy

    Ths is extremely frustrating, wasting a lot of time and energy and money – I am sincerely hoping you are aware of all of these issues and are…

  10. Share for review

    During this pandemic, I'm am trying to use the 'share for review' feature for a book I'm laying out. It is 600 pages, 300 spreads, about 333 MB file. It includes images and text.
    I've designed other books -- the printer had no problem with the files
    I'm using a Mac with InDesign 15.1.
    When I tried to share the file, 4 pages - 2 spreads uploaded. I tried again and 8 pages - 4 spread, appeared for sharing. I didn't choose them, it is what InDesign randomly chose.
    As an experiment, I created another file and tried to…

  11. Share for Review

    Share for Review does not seem to be working even after another update.

    I sent an invitation by "Invite Only". My client received an email with a link and the only 2 options available for my client are "Sign in with an Adobe ID" – 99% of my clients will not HAVE or NEED an Adobe ID.

    The second option is "Enter a password if one has been shared with you." Unfortunately, I was not given the option to set up a password. However, when posting publicly I could.

    And lastly, when I update the file (link), there was no…

  12. Print doc from the "share for review" page

    To review a document, some people like to print it to have a better look at it.

    Currently there is no option to print from the new "share for review" page, but having it would be very useful for some.
    Otherwise we still need to make and send a separate pdfs for review.

    So, it would be appreciated if you can somehow add it.

    Sincerely
    JP

    Bis heute morgen hat die Funktion "erstellen eines Review" funktioniert.
    Heut Abend macht das Programm nichts mehr. Es kommt nur mehr eine "schwarze" Fläche.

  14. InDesign Review Feature

    My coworker and I are both suddenly facing major problems with the review functionality with Adobe InDesign 16.1 (Windows). This has only been occurring for about 10 days. When the review function actually works instead of an error or just loading nonstop (only works 30% of the time now), the links often don't work in the end for other viewers to review and show up as an error. Now, when this works, the comments from the review link are not showing up where they were placed, and when we go in to implement them manually in InDesign from the weblink,…

  15. share for review is not working consistently

    If I try updating a share for review link the share for review panel freezes as shown in the attached image and nothing happens.
    I have to close and reopen the indesign file for the Share for Review to update the link, but it only works once or twice, before it begins to freeze again.

  17. 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,…
