The Share for Review feature allows creators to share in-progress files directly from the InDesign interface. With just a few clicks, the creator can send a link that allows reviewers to view the PDF file on any web browser. There’s no need to install special software or download files when using the PDF Embed API. Reviewers can use the annotation tools on the web interface to make suggestions or corrections online. This makes it very easy to share drafts with clients who may not have access to powerful design software.
Comments almost immediately flow back to InDesign in the review panel, so the original designer can resolve feedback without leaving the InDesign application. Creators can even choose from multiple security settings for the link — public, password-protected or restricted to users with specific Adobe IDs — to keep confidential projects safe.
According to a recent Pfeiffer Report, productivity is six times faster with Share for Review when dealing with multiple reviewers. No one involved in the review cycle needs to worry about exporting files, attaching to emails or downloading documents. Even when looking at a simple process with just one reviewer, Share for Review productivity is three times faster on average.
One graphic design studio calls the Share for Review feature a “game changer” for InDesign. Another established designer said, “The new Share for Review function has changed my life in just one day. If you use Adobe Creative Cloud, start using it. It makes it so easy to share designs with clients and let them provide feedback.”
