If you have created PDFs from your InDesign document and shared them for review, you can import comments from the reviewed PDFs right into your document and manage the feedback with ease. You can accept comments and mark them as resolved or unresolved. Selecting a comment also highlights the section in the document where the comment is applicable.
For the correct mapping of comments, ensure that the InDesign document is not edited after creating the PDF for review.
The PDF Comments panel displays all the imported comments. The total number of comments is displayed on top. All the comments are grouped based on the page number.
Each comment displays the following:
- Type of comment
- Name of the reviewer
- Date of the comment
- Option to mark a comment as resolved or unresolved
- Option to delete a comment
- Option to accept a comment, available only for Strikethrough Text, Replace Text, and Insert Text
A. PDF Comments panel menu B. Filter comments C. Mark resolved/unresolved D. Accept a comment E. Delete a comment F. Search comments G. Number of comments H. Type of comment I. Show/Hide comments on layout
Once the comments are imported in the PDF Comments panel, you can review individual comments. As you select a comment, the annotation corresponding to that comment gets highlighted in the document.
In the PDF Comments panel, you can do the following:
View comments that are not mapped with an object in the document. Unmapped comments display the icon.
You can filter the comments based on the types of comment. The following comment types are supported in InDesign:
|Text Comment||Connected Lines|
