Bluebeam Revu 2016 is Here!

The folks at Bluebeam have been hard at work all year, and now they're ready to share the next generation of the world's industry leading PDF solution with you: Revu 2016.

At Bohdee, we can tend to wax poetic about all the wonderful new features Bluebeam manages to pack into each new major version.  We'll keep this post limited to the basics, and then we'll follow up later with a more detailed look at how you can use each new feature to work smarter.  Email us if there's something specific you'd like to see!

 

New Features

 

Legends Revu Legends Icon

Legends allow anyone to have an immediate visual understanding of the markups on a PDF. Create Legends to show symbols with a basic description, or include additional information from the Markups list such as takeoff quantities, markup status and more. Watch your Legend automatically update as markups are added or modified. How’s that for Legendary?

Batch Markup Summary Revu Batch Sheet Summary Icon

Take your Markups list to the next level with batch functionality. Export comprehensive markup reports from multiple documents into a PDF, XML or CSV summary. Specify the information to include by using powerful sort and filter tools, create a personalized Summary Template, and then save your settings to produce customized markup reports at any time.

Tags Bluebeam Revu Tags Icon

First, Bluebeam built Sets to help you manage an unlimited number of various-source PDFs as a single document in a single tab. Now, they’ve introduced Tags to help you better organize and sort files within a Set according to sheet number, name, type and more. With Tags added to your sheets, you can even generate a complete drawing log from your Set.

Export Bookmarks Revu Export Bookmarks Icon

Too many bookmarks to count? Generate customized PDF and CSV summaries of bookmarks from a single file or across multiple PDFs. Organize your summaries according to hierarchy or as a complete list with corresponding page numbers.

 

Feature Enhancements 

Revit Plugin Enhancements

Generate smarter PDFs directly from Revit with a simple click.
