    Happening in InDesign 2022 and latest Mac OS Monterey on Silicon Mac. Wasn't this supposed to have been fixed looooong ago?

    I'll add another issue I discovered. If you edit the text and the the text reflows, the pins inserted by the reviewer don't flow with the text but stay on the page where the reviewer first put them. So after some time spent working on the text, the pins and their referents disengage, producing even more confusion.

    Seriously, this feature is super flawed and should never have been released.

    Have lost several days on a time sensitive job and ****** off an author because I had no idea this feature doesn't actually work.

    And is it a different issue that once changes are made in the reviewed document that the 'link' to the original edit and the corrected text in the ID doc is lost? Hard to believe that this is the way this feature is SUPPOSED to work.

    Adobe should really hire people who are professional wordsmiths and editors to help them figure out what features are useful and why the ones they deliver are sometimes inadequate (indexes, endnotes, etc.)

    Oh boy. Got the "black screen of wasted effort" for the first time today. WTF has this not been fixed yet?

    I've been experimenting with this script: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1344908. Unlike the story splitter script that comes with ID, it breaks the story only at the one place you designate. ID can be set to number endnotes by story, so when you create new stories within your doc each will have its number begin from "1".

    The obvious problem here is that the stories are no longer threaded, So if you gain or lose a page you need to make further manual adjustments, which may involve deleting pages or adding pages and rethreading. It's silly that Adobe makes its users go through this effort.

    So I suggest getting the document done and only then breaking it into stories to resequence the endnotes. That is not good practice either, but in the end is probably easier in terms of layout, as long as you can deal with endnote numbers that will run well into the 100s.
