Fix issues with sharing documents for review in InDesign
Experiencing issues when sharing documents for review or loading the review link? The solutions provided here should help.
Problems sharing documents for review?
Creative Cloud services are used to share documents for review and any issue that affects the cloud can affect sharing. However, other factors such as the OS of your computer, its hardware configuration and the workflow you choose can also prevent effective sharing of documents for review.
The following issues have been fixed in InDesign 16.2.1:
- In the Share for Review workflow, some review comments do not appear in the InDesign document but appear fine in the browser version and in the Comments panel.
- Share for Review panel is blank when trying to initiate a new Share for Review.
For all other issues, try the solutions below in the order they are listed. With each solution, pause and check to see if the issue is resolved and proceed no further.
Solution 1: Sign-out and sign-in to Creative Cloud.
