Need to add hyperlinks in several places on a multi-paged PDF or on many PDFs? Use the Batch Link command in Bluebeam Revu eXtreme.
Batch Link searches PDFs for text specified by the user and creates links to user-defined destinations. There are built-in tools to auto-generate both search terms and destinations, or you can manually enter them.
The Batch Link command can be used in plan sets, multi-documents, and Studio Projects if you check it out. It can’t be used in Studio Sessions, and Revu eXtreme is required.
Here’s a short video with step-by-step instructions on how to select the files or folders to be updated with the links; options for setting page regions, search terms, link format, and saving; how to generate the report of links to be added, create the hyperlinks; and verify accuracy.
Want to learn more about how you can save time with the batch automation features in Revu 2018? View the recording of a webinar I recently delivered called, Save Time Through Batch Automation with Bluebeam Revu 2018.
