In our final monthly "How to with Revu®" Q&A session of 2022, we covered the topics discussed throughout the year. Below, we'll review each session's subject and its point of interest.
A few ways to create a layered document include:
1. File menu tab > Create > Layered PDF. This will prompt you to select which files to create a Layered PDF. Browse other files to begin layering.
2. Document menu tab > Overlay Pages.
When creating a stamp, there is some data you can dynamically apply each time a stamp is applied to a page. When adding a text box to a stamp, a "Dynamic" option displays to enter different information:
Begin by signing into the Gateway Portal via www.portal.bluebeam.com. Manage your Revu licensing, Drawings application access, and Gateway Admins.
In this session, we covered updates included in Revu20.2.6. We saw more updates than usual in a .2 release in this update. Some of the main new features were related to Studio® and the Markups List.
In this workshop webinar series, we discussed the punch process workflow of creating spaces in Revit, extracting the file to PDF, creating punch tools, and collaborating on the project in a Studio Session.
Spaces are designed to enable more efficient punch list and backcheck operations.
When it comes to Revu, there's always going to be more than one way to perform a task. Any shortcut to enhance efficiency is always appreciated. In this session, we looked at a few tips & tricks I believe every Revu user should be familiar with.
In Revu®, security can be set to restrict users' access to a PDF. You can require the user to enter a password to read or edit the file. Check options on or off to ensure specific features cannot be utilized on the locked file without unlocking first
Note: Some actions, such as certifying or digitally signing a document, automatically secure it.
Navigating through documents in Revu depends on the page size and the view options you have selected.
Like previous versions, you still need to install Revu 21, but now you no longer need to provide a serial number or product key to get started. With Revu 21, users can now simultaneously sign into up to 5 devices at a time. You no longer have to feel the pain of having to unregister/register any computer you want to use.
With the new subscription model, there are now three new versions of Revu 21: Basic, Core, and Complete. Each differs from the previous editions we've all known Revu for throughout its evolution. Below are some changes between each version.
