Revu® has had many significant updates to markups, Studio, and markups-list throughout the years. The release of Revu 2020 on August 18, 2020, was no exception. Thanks to customer feedback, Bluebeam® can meet the needs of its users and develop new tools to tailor to those needs. You can find a list of patch notes on their website here. Below, we'll take a look at the major updates added to Revu 2020.
- A new larger invitation screen greets us when first initiating a Studio Session/Project.
- You can now view which Studio Projects/Sessions users are or aren't a part of
by viewing the "Joined" or "Not Joined" lists in Studio.
- The text box markup can now quickly be converted into a call-out by right-clicking the markup and selecting Add Leader.
- Improved auto-sizing functions for text markups are also available in the current Revu20.
- Added the hexagon as a shape for a text box.
- There has been an update to the filtering process. A new row appears for us to select multiple filters to apply to the markups list.
- You can now save filters for future documents.
- A new "Find Tools & Commands" feature lets you search for tools and commands throughout Revu to help you find what you're looking for faster.
- Assign another user's markups. When a user is denied access to a Studio Session or has left the company, we now have the option to reassign markups so that their markups can be edited.
- Receive visual updates when a user replies to a markup. There is a reply icon that displays the reply text.
- You can apply a markup to all pages or a specific page range.
- A new window displays at the bottom screen when applying a measurement markup. This window shows more information about what is being applied.
- A preset section when setting a scale. Some preset scales are already saved for you to take advantage of.
- We can now have measurements on the document that is independent of the scale we set.
- Studio users can now remain signed in until they choose to sign out.
