Feature Spotlight: Sketch Tools

Bluebeam is well known for being responsive to customer feature requests, and perhaps no other feature has been more requested than the ability to draw markups to specific dimensions. This is especially the case for those who are used to working in design programs such as AutoCAD or Revit, where performing this task is a simple affair.

The good news is that Bluebeam has listened, and in Revu 2015 you can now draw polyline, polygon, retangle and ellipse markups to exact measurements based on the PDF's calibrated scale. This not only speeds up the process of generating the markups, it also takes the guesswork out of the equation and cuts down on the margin for human error.

All three versions of Bluebeam Revu 2015 (Standard, CAD, eXtreme) come equipped with the new Sketch Tools, and you can access them from the markups tab in your toolbar along the top. Once you select the sketch tool you'd like to use, you can either click around the PDF to place points as normal, or manually type in the exact dimensions and angles.
