Bluebeam Revu: Save Time with Tool Chests
Date: Oct 08, 2018

Do you find yourself creating the same markups in Bluebeam Revu over and over again? Maybe for your personal standards or a company standard? There’s no need to do that anymore. Use Tool Chests instead.

Easy to Save

When you open a PDF from Bluebeam Revu 2018, you will find shortcuts to the different tools in the left side panel. The Tool Chest looks like a tool box. To save a markup, simply:

  • Create the markup
  • Right click on it
  • Add it to the appropriate Tool Chest(s)

Easy to Use

There are two ways to use a markup saved in a Tool Chest:

  • If you need the exact markup, simply drag and drop it onto your document
  • If you need to change the text, use the Property Mode to copy the properties and edit the text

Easy to Share

Once a markup has been saved in a tool chest, it is easily shared with others with the Import/Export commands.

For a demonstration, watch this short video where David Haynes, Bluebeam Certified Consultant, walks through the steps:
