RH2020 Reviewer markup and comments move and don't display correctly

I’m on RH 2020.5.71 and started using the Review tool with 4 people doing the reviewing. All the reviewers received the linked emails, and everything was going fine until I started getting the markup and comments back.

Where the reviewers highlighted or made comments is not where I see it. It has jumped to a completely different line/area. A reviewer showed me on his screen how he highlighted a line and when he started to scroll down the highlighter line kept moving around. When he scrolled back up it highlighted the correct line. When I open the document in RoboHelp all highlighting, and comment markup is moved to the wrong line/area. So, I have no idea what needs to be updated!

I'm including two images one is from the reviewer called RH_Reviewer and the other is the image I see as the author called RH_Author. As you can see in the RH_Author all the mark up is in the wrong places.

Any ideas what is happening???

I just wanted to let everyone know that the review process is now working. Surbhi was able to assit in getting this resolved.

Hi,

 

This issue could be related to the fonts referred in the document content and might be due to different font installations on the reviewer's and author's system. This can be verified by opening the review url on both machines and checking if any discrepancy is there.
If it is possible to share the stylesheet used with some sample content we can try to reproduce the issue at our end also. Please share your topic file and CSS file with us at sumahesh@adobe.com  to look into it further.

 

Thanks and Regards,
Surbhi Maheshwari

Per the email I received I sent the topic and my css files to the email listed.

Also I have no idea what Surbhi is talking about regarding the URL since I don't see a URL because I see the file in the Review tab in RoboHelp??? Maybe someone can explain that one to me.

Secondly, I'm using the Calibri font so I can't believe that is the issue.

Surbhi is from a different section of Adobe, not Support. Her section is closed this week. The address is still good though and I do know it was being looked at.

Thank you Peter, I do realise you are not part of Adobe. I received an email last week from Surbhi Maheshwari saying they were looking into this issue. I went to email this person back today and I get a message saying it can't be delivered because the email address is no longer valid. So I was reaching out to see who can help me.

Thanks,

Try again, definitely correct. I think it's a glitch in the system. I'll check it out in the morning.

What is the current status of this issue?

We are facing the same issue and it is very hard to work on the reviews when the highlighting and error correction is not working properly.

Adobe was able to get a fix for this issue and pushed out the update so we are in the process of testing the fix.I'm hoping to get everyone here to help with the testing and will report back later this week. At first blush it appears to be working but doing much more through testing.

I agree very difficult to try to guess what needs revisions when its not working properly hoping this fix will work. Stay tuned!

Hello,

is an additional update of RoboHelp necessary?
We have followed the documented steps, but unfortunately we still have partial 50% error rate in the markers. The markers were created directly in RH2020 and I checked them as a reviewer in Chrome - Incognito Mode.

Supposedly Adobe pushed out a update they told me. I just did a check for updates within RH. 

As long as the reviewer has the browser incognito mode and does all their markups incognito mode then I as the author make the corrections within RH.

Now there still are 2 issues with the Adobe alert links and when you click that alert you can't see the documento or markup. You can get around that by not using the alerts to view the markup. Unfortunaely, it is best if the reviewer tells you what topic the markup has been done in then you as the author can open that topic within RH and make the corrections.

Hopefully that helps.

The problem for us is that we have 5 authors. However, there are many reviewers in our company, but they do not have RH license. Therefore, we rely on the reviews to work without problems via the browser. We cannot provide an RH license to every employee. We chose RH for this very reason, because reviewers do not need an Adobe license.

Hi,

Thanks for the tip "Incognito mode" !

BUT ! (and I speek to Adobe representatives)

- This is still a tip, which imposes to think about it for the reviewers, that are not doing this each morning...

- As an author, the links received by mail for each comment are not working. So I need to open each toopic to be reviewed, to see if there is some comment on it.

- In order to see the comments AND the docs, I need to open the link I sent to the reviewers, which opens RH on line. Creative Cloud is really useless, and the fact that I installed it on my PC, as requested in your deocumentation, had no effect. Still no access to the documents.

- It would be great, at least, to give this information on Robohelp Help site, so people don't loose their time in discovering this in a forum...

- And it would be better that Adobe solve theese issues !

Thanks in advance to consider the customers... as customers...

Regards

I just had a quick go with the latest patch I installed today (Help > Check for Updates) and the reviewing seems to be working okay.  Highlighting and Strikethrough on text I added in a normal Chrome window appeared on the correct text inside RoboHelp.

We have version 2020.5.71 installed.

RH is telling me that we have the latest version...

 

Seems like they have big problems with markers if an autor is marking some parts in a content and the reviewer is using a browser.

Pending this being fixed consider using Pdfs and commenting those.

Before Robohelp, we used Microsoft Word's change tracking... so means back to the roots until the bug is fixed...

I know this is an old thread, but I was wondering if anyone had any new information on this problem. I and a colleague are using RH 2020.6.76 and ran across the same problem where all the highlights were shifted. I then discovered a workaround (at least for us). I discovered that I (the reviewer) was using a zoom level of 125% in my browser and she (the author) was using 100%. When I changed to using 100% zoom level, the highlights were no longer shifted. I am posting here in case anyone else runs across the same problem, but also is there a way to get this info to RoboHelp developers?

Meanwhile we don`t have this problem with our reviews anymore. First inkoginto mode worked for us but now we can do the review without any problems, regarding wrong pointers etc. We are using same version as you do.
