Every month, our Bluebeam team hosts 'How to with Revu,' a Q&A webinar dedicated to providing you with answers to your Bluebeam-related question. In this month's session, we looked at the different methods of viewing our document. Navigating through documents in Revu depends on the page size and the view options we have selected. Below, we'll look at the few examples we covered. 

All the viewing options are listed under the View menu tab. From here, there are a few settings we can choose to disable or enable.

 

Picture1-fit-pageAt the top, we have the option to fit the document depending on some settings. If you zoom in or out too far, the "Fit Page" option will re-center. We can also double-click our mouse will to "Fit Page."

 

Other options allow us to view the document page-by-page or view multiple at once. Each option will determine how the mouse will behave while zooming in and out of pages.

 

Picture2rotate

In this section, we can either rotate how the pages of the document are being viewed or split our interface to view two or more pages at once. Splitting documents is best for comparing two versions.

 

Picture3-synchronizeSynchronizing documents also goes directly with the split option. This feature is used best when comparing. We essentially have two documents that follow when the user is navigating.

 

Picture4-detach

By right-clicking the document in our document tab, we can detach the document off one screen and move it to another. We also see a duplicate location for splitting our view.
