Reviewers can make comments directly on PDF versions of topics, images, and maps during the review process.

When files reach the review stage, users with the proper access rights can view PDF versions of topics, images, and maps, and mark these up with their comments.

The Collaborative Reviewer is available in two versions:
  • An Eclipse-based version – This version is available within the DITA Perspective. It can be used by editors and subject matter experts to review documents and by authors to respond to their reviewers' comments.
  • A web-based version – This version allows users to access just the reviewing functionality of DITA CMS, without having to install Eclipse. Details of this application are available from its Help menu.
