Hello Smart People:

I understand that when working in a shared review in a browser window, the commenting tools are limited. But I thought that when reviewing in Acrobat/Reader all of the tools would all be available.

This review is open in Acrobat Pro DC and I don't see how to access the other mark-up tools, including the measuring tools. What am I missing?

I experienced the same thing. It seems to be by design.

So frustrating. I'm wasting time trying to convey specific instructions with the limited tool palette. Why can't the cloud file be downloaded and opened with the full-featured onboard application?

Hey there! I was wondering if there's been any new information about this issue. I noticed when you send for review through InDesign, there's even less tools – there's 2 text tools at first and then they disappear for some reason. I refresh, they come back and then disappear again. Alternatively, if you send for review through Acrobat, there's just the few tools that Barb shows. I'm confused why these platforms don't have the other text tools that are vital for feedback. It sort of defeats the purpose of having a cloud based review because of this. Thankfully my colleagues giving feedback have Acrobat and can send me back a PDF with all the edits formatted correctly, however I'd really like to use the review tool. Is it just me, or were there more tools available in review a year or so ago?

My team are also experiencing the same problems! It's getting very irritating!
