The following video takes you through a comprehensive overview of Bluebeam Revu software.

This recorded webinar starts with the basic navigation of the user interface. You’ll see just how intuitive the software is, even for inexperienced users.

Gain insight on how to quickly find files and “pin” your favorites for immediate retrieval and much more.

From there, learn how to split the screen into multiple views. Check out how the Compare Documents feature instantly clouds and records any changes in document revisions.

This is a game-changer if you regularly deal with RFIs.

Discover how to quickly markup and annotate PDF files with the wide-range of built-in Mark Up Tools. Each of them can be completely customized to fit your specific needs or standards.

Notice how each custom tool can be saved in the innovative Tool Chest for later recall.

Next is a tour of the Advance Markups List. Imagine the dynamic power of a spreadsheet built right into Revu.

This automatically tracks who said what and when for complete accountability. Just like Excel, this data can be filtered, sorted, or used for calculations.

Markup summary reports can be created in a variety of formats. The PDF report will automatically hyperlink all items to the specific callout referenced on the sheet.

Finally, bring it all together with an overview of Bluebeam Studio—the online collaboration tool available with every license of Bluebeam.

Watch how to load all your project files and “check out” PDF files to edit. Bluebeam Sessions elevates the functionality even more by hosting designated files in a “digital conference room.” It’s a great way to speed up project timelines.
