How to add comments to assets shared with you

Use the commenting feature in the Creative Cloud website to add comments and annotations, edit comments, reply to comments, and receive notifications when there is activity on your thread comments.

  1. Open the link to the asset that you received. 

  2. To open the Comments panel, select the   icon  in the upper right.

    To comment on the shared asset, click the Comment icon

  3. Add your comment and select Submit. To provide visual context, you can also place a pin or draw a shape on the asset.

    Submit your comment

      To resolve, edit, or delete a comment, select the More options  menu, and then select the desired option. Marking a comment as Resolved does not delete it. It simply hides the comment so you can focus on unresolved comments. Use the filter icon in the lower-right corner to see all resolved comments.
