Acrobat "Send for Shared Review" - Reviewing with Adobe Reader?

Hello all,
I am experimenting with Acrobat's collaboration function and I think I am almost there...
1) I built a webDAV server
2) Authenticated the document with the webDAV server.
3) Tested making edits to the document locally... in both Acrobat and Reader (I had to Save As Other the PDF as a Reader Extended Document)
4) Now, I think I have one last hurdle to overcome.
   When another user received the test file, I was dismayed that PDF asked the user for the webDAV user name and password. Why? This security information should be stored in the document. It should automatically log into the webDAV server.
Anyhow, once the login information was provided, the reviewer can successfully enter comments into the document. So... sort of success. :]
I just need to solve that login problem because I can't be giving out the user name and password to the webDAV server.
Any ideas?

I understand that. Perhaps I am not explaining myself (or not understanding your reply)
What I am bothered by is that when the reviewer opens the PDF document, in Adobe Reader, the reader is asked to enter the user name and password of the webDAV server and then they are asked to enter their user name, email address, etc. That is a lot of steps I would love to eliminate in order to make the review process as easy and seamless as possible.
If anything, I would love to embed the webDAV authentication into the PDF.
Shall I presume that you are using PDF Shared Reviews with a webDAV server? Do your reviewers have to first enter the webDAV's user name and password and then second, enter their personal information, every time they wish to review a document?

    Cannot embed pdfs in Word doc which are PDF Version 1.3 (Acrobat 4.x) [This is associated with Adobe Reader 9]. Getting 'program not installed' error.
    Pdfs with other versions are okay:
    Tested successfully with Adobe Pro 9 (Version 1.5 (Acrobat 6.x)), Reader X (Version 1.4 (Acrobat 5.x)) and XI (Version 1.6 (Acrobat 7.x))
    Also cannot open embedded pdfs which have been embedded with this version (getting a similar error).
    Importantly I have removed/disabled all security options in Adobe Reader, following numerous internet suggestions from Adobe and elsewhere. This does not fix the problem.
    Currently the work around is to re-save the pdf with something other than Adobe Reader 9 (so the version updates), but we would prefer not to do this for all the old pdfs we have.
    Thank you,

    Could you please email me the document on which you are seeing this issue at [email protected] ?

  • Impossible to review pdf with Adobe Reader 9.0

    I'm trying to use the option in Acrobat sending pdf to review by users working with Adobe Reader but it
    doesn't work as described in the help.
    I'm sending the review with Acrobat Professional version 7.0 and the receiver with Adobe Reader 9.0.
    Normally it should work as it is indicated Adobe Reader 7.0 or higher, but the receiver is not able to add comments and the toolset which should be provide according to the Acrobat review wizard doesn't open.
    Who can help?
    thx! Anja

    With Acrobat 7 you can only send out Browser Based Review, (which is replaced by shared reviews in version 9).
    The reviewers will need to open the PDF inside a browser, and have access to the location of the PDF to be reviewed.
    Acrobat 8 can do both types still, have a look here: b-8C0D-58C7B2063B1D.html
    And here's a tutorial for those situations whereby reviewers do not have access to the server location of the Reviewed PDF:

  • Adobe XI send for shared review is missing option for Adobe online services, where did it go?

    I am using Adobe XI and trying to share a PDF file using Comments --> Review ---> Send for Shared Review.  The option to share via Adobe Online Services is missing.  What is causing this and how do I get that option back? I am working on a Mac in Safari. Screen shot below:

    With Acrobat Pro 11.0.06 I have send more 188 files for shared review with deadline in June.
    After the update (automatically in May) to 11.0.07 Monday June, 2 became a cold shower to me:
    1) to start a new shared review was not possible anymore
    2) tracking of my 188 reviews was not possible anymore, "no active reviews" = empty tracking list !!
    My temporary solution: uninstall 11.0.07 and reinstall 11.0.00 with NO automatic updating: stop updating at version 11.0.06.
    Result: the tracking list is filled with all items.
    Earlier this year Adobe announced end of life of shared reviews at the end of this year 2014.
    My question to Adobe: how long is this type of shared review supported ?
    My complete workflows are based on it.

  • Adobe Captivate 8 Send For Shared Review link to Adobe Captivate Reviewer provides no download for Captivate 8

    In Adobe Captivate 8 if you use the feature "Send for Shared Review" and select the option "Send Email" and "Attach Adobe Captivate Reviewer" the end result is a link generated in the email to download Adobe Captivate Reviewer (doesn't attach it as indicated).
    As noted in the email Adobe Captivate 8 Reviewer is REQUIRED to review the file. No big deal there is a link to it in the email : the download link -
    Unfortunately that link redirects to another page and on that page there is no Adobe Captivate 8 Reviewer link to download. *screenshot of the page below*
    Anyone know the correct link location to download Adobe Captivate 8 Reviewer?
    I am still searching but so far have been unable to find it.
    Thank you in advance to anyone that can help.

    When sharing the link for people to review use the same link but just give instructions to use the one specified for 7.0 (mac or windows).
    Sorry to ask again but want to make sure before I send this out to people.
    Thank you.

  • Send for shared review - What type of Web server folder works?

    Hello all,
    Can someone please explain to me what type of web server folder works with "Send for shared review"?
    I have created a folder on my GoDaddy server account with full permissions... but after clicking Next, I see the error, "The Shared Folder Location is not valid. Click OK and check the Status field for more information."
    1) It isn't valid? What are the valid server requirements?
    2) "...check the Status field for more information."? What Status field?
    It would have been great if I could use a Google Docs folder but that failed as well.
    What must I do to unlock this neat feature?
    Thank you

    Thanks CtDave.
    I ended up building a WebDAV server and I am now encountering a bunch of new issues. Such as:
    From my workstation, working with Acrobat.
    - After making comments. I click the top button "Publish Comments" - this works well - no errors. But when I attempt to exit the PDF, Acrobat wants to save the document. Attempting to Save results in a read-only error. After trying this, Acrobat gets into a loop where there doesn't appear to be a way to exit Acrobat (other than by Save As new file name):
    Even worse... I understood that reviewers only required the Adobe Reader in order to comment. This doesn't seem to be the case.
    When I emailed a test document for review, this is the message that pops up:
    All that is available is the original content (none of the review comments are available).
    Any ideas?

  • "send for shared review" cannot connect to server

    I'm trying use the "Send for Shared Review" feature in Acrobat 9. I want to send a pdf document to and share with others for review and comment. I first used this feature about 2 months ago and it worked without a hitch.
    Every time I try it by clicking in the menu "Send for Shared Review", I'm asked for my user name and password to connect to I type it in (I know it's correct because I can go to using my browser and the password works), the dialog box comes up telling me it "can't connect to server." It has my correct log in information. If I use my browser to go to, I can log in fine, but then of course I can't get the mark-up feature for my shared pdf files. Any ideas what I can do to troubleshoot? I'm at a loss.

  • Interactive button in PDF file doesn't work with Adobe Reader for Mac nor Acrobat Pro

    I've to use a interactive form which has an interactive button that is supposed to send that form by email. If I open that PDF with my iPhone or iPad with the PDF Expert App, it works perfectly, but for any strange reason, when I try to open that same PDF in my Mac with Adobe Reader or Acrobat pro, that button doesn't do anything.
    Can this be a configuration error?

    The problem is deeper than that. It's not reader. Now the same form I was creating in LifeCycle Designer ES2 yesterday, with the actions working perfectly, no longer work. None of the actions are working.
    Could it be realted to me trying to set the default version compatibility to Adobe 7. It gave me warnings, so I set it back to 9.
    Any help would be appreciated.

  • Extend/modify deadline in Acrobat Pro 8 shared document review

    Is it possible to extend or modify the deadline for an Acrobat Pro 8 shared document review?

    No it's not possible to extend/modify the deadline in Acrobat 8 shared reveiws. These features have beed added in Acrobat 9. In Acrobat 8, the reviewers can add comments even after the deadline has expired. The review file can however be checked out of the review by saving a copy of the file using the 'save an archive copy' option under file menu(File> Save as archive copy), when the reveiw process is complete.

  • Form is filled on iPad then emailed.  If form is opened with Adobe Reader all text is visible, but if opened with Acrobat XI no text is visible.

    Form filled on ipad.  When opened with Adobe Reader all text is visible, but if opened with Acrobat XI no text is visible- form is blank.   Have been using this system for months with  no problems.

    That suggestion makes sense and likely works, but only if the user is on a machine that will allow them to use Reader. I'm sending this out to a lot of teachers, who are using machines either at school, or are school-issued machines, and they don't have the admin privileges to install software-- even Reader.
    so my problem is, if they are stuck on a machine without Reader, and without the possibility of having Reader... it's just not going to work because Preview can't handle these functions.
    And, since that is not an acceptable answer with what I'm trying to do... I will find another way to create/submit forms. I think there are some online possibilities I will have to make work.
    very, very disappointing and frustrating.

  • Will Adobe Acrobat 8.0 Standard Work With Adobe Reader 8.2.4?

    I have a question, but haven't found an answer to this yet.
    Can anyone tell me please:  Will Adobe Acrobat 8.0 Standard work with Adobe Reader 8.2.4?
    I had Adobe Acrobat 6.0 Standard on my computer & it was working with Adobe Reader 8, but don't remember what the version it was.
    I was using Adobe Acrobat 6.0 Standard to scan very old family pictures & documents & I realize that this version of Acrobat is outdated.
    To make a long story short, my computer had crashed, so we built another computer & just replaced the hard drive.  When I went to Adobe, I had to download the newer version of Reader 9.0 & it didn't work with Acrobat 6.0., so I removed Adobe Reader 9 & I found Adobe Reader 8.0 & have downloaded the patches, so now I have Adobe Reader 8.2.4 back on board.
    Thank you.

    Adobe doesn't recommend any version of Reader with any version of Acrobat on Windows. It will cause problems. It just is a matter of how and when. The problem has to do with shared resources causing conflicts. If you have Acrobat 8, you can update it to Acrobat 8.2.4. You must apply the updates sequentially.

  • Problem with adobe reader for android.

    I have set up 25 android tablets for my employees to use adobe reader. They are downloading a blank .pdf forms created with acrobat from a cloud drive (google drive) and then filling out the forms on the tablet. On 24 of the tablets, when the original form is opened from the cloud, adobe reader gives a warning that the file is "read-only" and gives the option to save a copy locally in order to be able to edit the form, or to continue and view the form as read-only. On one tablet, adobe reader skips this warning and ALWAYS opens the form as read-only. I have un-installed and re-installed adobe reader and the cloud drive multiple times. I have done factory resets and completely re-configuresd the tablet multiple times. I have even tried multiple cloud accounts to ensure that it isnt a cloud setting. The problem is isolated to this tablet, regardless of all of these "fixes" I cannot find any setting to eneble/disable this option. Any ideas as to why everything works on every other tablet, but not this one?

    The first thing I would try is a different cloud server, e.g. Workspaces at - just to make sure it's not Google Drive causing the problem.
