Bluebeam Tip: How to assign colors to markup statuses

A handy feature in all 3 versions of Bluebeam Revu (Standard, CAD and eXtreme) is the ability to assign statuses to markups in the markups list. You can also assign colors to these statuses so that your markups will automatically change colors whenever you set them to a particular status. For example, if you were performing punch using a PDF, you could set up your punch keys to change to green whenever you mark their status as "complete". This allows you to quickly visually reference which items have been completed, and which have not. Let's check out how to do this in Bluebeam Revu below.


1. Open up your document in Revu. In the markups list, click on the blue gear icon for "Manage Status".

2. Select the status which you want to assign a color. Click "Modify", set your desired color, then clock OK.

3. Now whenever you assign a status to a markup in the markups list, it will automatically change to the color that you specified. In this example, our punch key has changed over to green whenever we set the status to "Completed".
