Well, that’s it in a nutshell. When you boil it down, Adobe has made it rather easy to review and comment on a PDF. Of course, this isn’t exactly in real–time, like instant messaging, but it does beat manually emailing and trying to bring all of the comments into one document. Also, this workflow may not work for all companies and in all review situations, but that’s why Adobe has given us so many options for review.
Ultimately, you and your reviewers should each have a copy of the PDF with all of the comments inserted by the end of the review. As the initiator, it is your job to track the review process and keep it moving along (although reviewers can obviously lend a hand if necessary).
