Batch processing in Bluebeam Revu 2018 software eliminates repetitive processes by automating them based on specific instructions. Before jumping into the action, it can be helpful to understand how it works. 
 
Here’s a quick explanation of the two-part process:
 
Part 1 – Gather all the PDFs you’d like changed
  • Go to Menu – Batch pulldown
 
  • In the Batch:<Batch Feature> dialog box, use the Add pulldown option to either add files or folders to the batch process
  • Click “Add” and then “Save” and the “Load”
  • The file combinations will be saved as a .bcx file
  • You can send that .bcx file to others for batch processing
 
Part 2 – Execute the batch commands (varies by process):
  • Headers/Footers, Security, and Hyperlinks have preset options that you can save to your local computer.  The presets allow you to repeat the same options on other groups of documents.
  • Sign and Seal, Stamp, and OCR do not have presets, so options have to be done each time a group of documents is batched.
