The PDF has to be posted as a shared review on a cloud web storage site.
There's a size limit to what you can upload. My company is using corporate
GMAIL and I have a 30Gb limit on storage, and for now I have to attach a
shared review enabled PDF to an email to allow reviewers to join the
review*. Admittedly, this one file isn't going to break either of those
limits, but it's not something I can keep doing for a long period of time.
Plus the sudden increase in size worries me. If there's a problem with the
files, I need to find it before things get hosed (and yes, I did run all
the files through a MIF wash).

*I will be testing setting up a shared review by storing the shared review
PDF on the cloud drive and sending a link instead, but until I do, I know
this works.
