We've had a couple of requests from users re collaborative online commenting using e.g. Network folder or database (WebDAV is still uncharted territory for many companies).
The Acro6 complete help has no information on this (and 1/2 a page on WebDAV...) so I wondered if anyone out there has any more info on setting up nwk folder/database collaboration.
I noticed in Reviewing Prefs the following WebDAV info: https://xmedia-review.adobe.com/iw/previews/comments, and followed it...
This seems to be just an Adobe server for employee and external associate use only, so not much use.
Why not set up a similar server for end-user use, maybe with some kind of space restriction to avoid any unexpected bandwidth costs?
I really fail to understand how Adobe can keep promoting technologies (e.g. commenting) and then don't do anything to actually connect it to users for the last stage. It's happened with Forms, Commenting and DRM/Ebooks. It's like they spend 23hrs 59minutes on the technology, and 1minute on the support side...!!
What is the point of doing a slick workover of Commenting in Acrobat 6 - which understandably makes people want to try it out - and then fail to provide a few 3 page How To PDFs to back it up?
Incidentally, I zipped over to the Adobe Studio site to see if there were any tutorials there - a joke, half of them relate to Acrobat 5 only and some of them - e.g. colour managment - look like they've been written by someone in 5 minutes on the john...
