Streamlining PDF-Based Digital Workflows with Revu® 9, the newest release|
Not your typical software company, Bluebeam Software is taking the quest for
paperless construction projects to once again, a whole new level. Founded in
2002, Bluebeam has been making smart, simple solutions to dramatically improve
workflow and bring more sustainable, paperless solutions to architectural,
engineering, and construction firms worldwide.
Bluebeam PDF Revu 9, the latest, fully loaded version of Bluebeam’s PDF platform
technologies is bringing forth 30 enhanced features to streamline PDF markup,
viewing, processing, collaboration and sharing. “Revu 9 is truly fully loaded.
We took everything our users love about Revu for project communication,
incorporated their feedback and feature suggestions and made it better,” said
Bluebeam Software CEO Richard Lee. “The result is more power, more flexibility
and enhanced usability to help our customers get their job done”.
Revu 9’s new 3D PDF viewing capability enables users to navigate through complex
models on screen and rotate, spin and zoom to gain a dynamic view of the
project. Using a mouse, users can refine their perspective and vantage point, as
well as isolate and view various specific elements, make transparent layers to
drill down into masked details and save these specific views in the document so
that project collaborators can have the same perspective.
VisualSearch™, is another new feature that adds a new dimension to document
search capabilities over simple text-only search. Users simply highlight a
specific visual element or symbol to find and Revu 9 searches for instances of
that element across the current document, all open documents, recent documents
or files in a specific folder. Plus, users can instantly apply markups and
hyperlinks simultaneously to all identified VisualSearch results, eliminating a
time-consuming manual process.
The highly requested function, area cutouts, makes Revu 9 ideal for design and
construction professionals to account for room obstructions in area measurements
and create more accurate estimates. Users can also convert PDF files seamlessly
back to their original native MS Office® file formats with export capability to
Word, Excel and PowerPoint, as well as HTML for online use and search-ability.
Revu 9 allows users to run multiple sessions concurrently and move document tabs
dynamically between sessions using the new MultiView™ feature. Tabs can also be
dragged and dropped to an attached second monitor for expanded viewing and more
“Even with all these new features and capabilities in Revu 9, we know that some
users are craving more tools to push the limits of electronic workflows,” Lee
said. “For these PDF power users, we are introducing Bluebeam PDF Revu extreme™,
a new edition of Revu with advanced functionality to satisfy tech-savvy
Revu 9 eXtreme adds optical character recognition (OCR) for scanning and
converting paper documents to text searchable and selectable PDFs, PDF form
creation capabilities, document redaction capabilities for added security and
powerful scripting capabilities for automated batch-processing of multi-step
desktop functions for ever greater efficiency and time savings. Extended
capability enhances productivity by allowing users to run multiple sessions of
Revu concurrently and move document tabs dynamically between the sessions.
