Core Revu Features

Markup & Measure
Use Revu’s markup and measurement tools, including text, shapes, stamps, length, area, perimeter and more to redline or measure your PDFs. Store common markups in the Tool Chest™ for easy reuse later. Create custom tool sets and export them to project partners to streamline annotations. Want to know who said what, when? Revu’s customizable Markups list tracks the author, date, time and comments associated with each markup. Measure once
and Revu automatically calculates all other related measurements for you and tracks them in the Markups list. When all is said and done, export the Markups list as a PDF or CSV Summary.

Document Editing
Easily edit PDF content by adding, deleting or rotating pages, combining multiple PDFs, or flattening your mark-ups to make them a permanent part of the PDF. Revu can even reduce the size of PDFs to make them more suitable for email and sharing. Want to share more than just what’s on the document? Create hyperlinks that jump to any page in the document, snapshot view, URL and more. Revu even honors PDF security that restricts
access to a file or requires a password for modification.

Bluebeam Studio
Collaborate in the cloud with anyone, anywhere, using Bluebeam Studio. Create or join an existing Studio Project from Revu and start uploading PDFs for easy, streamlined file sharing. Access existing Studio Sessions or start a new Session on the go. Upload PDFs to a Session and invite attendees from around the world to view, chat and markup the same PDFs together in real time or on your own time. You can even upload Project PDFs into a Session and check in changes as you collaborate for real-time updates to Project files. All Session activity is tracked in a Record that links back to the PDF to easily review past Session activity.

PDF Navigation
Revu uses tabbed navigation so you can easily switch between tabs, or view them in their own floating window. Revu’s MultiView™ technology allows you to split your screen up to sixteen times and sync tabs to pan and zoom in unison. Looking for more? Display a layout grid over your PDF and toggle snap-to behavior on and off for precise markup placement. Or enable layers to better organize the content in a PDF; just toggle layers on or off to control the visibility of all content and markups on that layer. Never get lost navigating your PDFs again.
