Revu and Vu iPad 3.0.5 have just been released! In addition to improvements and fixes to both, they are now compatible with 64-bit devices. Be sure to check out the full release notes for all the details.
Can you believe Bluebeam is celebrating our 13th anniversary today? Neither can we! The last 13 years have been so much fun, time has really flown by.
Bluebeam’s mission has always been to help our customers do what they do better. But we love having a good time in the process, and our videos are no exception. To celebrate, let’s take a look back at some of our favorites over the years. Don’t judge.
It all began with the Mighty Bluebeam, our paper-fighting hero who battled the evil “Paper Pusher” to save the people of “Paperopolis” from drowning in paper. Go Mighty Bluebeam, go!
In 2011, Bluebeamer Chris tried his best to hide his Boston accent while narrating this swell little video on collaborating with Bluebeam Studio.
By 2013, we had graduated to full-on “webisodes” for celebrating the release of Revu 11, where David and his friend “Gustavo” spread the word about Digital Signatures. Talk about mad ventriloquism skills!
Later that year, we kicked off the Bluebeam eXtreme Conference keynote with the ultimate Bluebeam “movie trailer.” We laughed, we cried, it became a part of us.
In 2014 we introduced the new “Support on Demand” feature, which delivers real live Bluebeam support personnel, wherever you need them, at the push of a button. OK…not really. It was, after all, released on April 1. ;)
We also visited Dallas on “The Road to Revu 12,” where the gang had a great time catching up with customers and showing users the new features of Revu 12. They even managed to hit a karaoke bar and chase guinea hens at the Fort Worth Stockyard. Yee haw!
Things got musical for the 2014 Bluebeam eXtreme Conference, with Bluebeamers singing and dancing their way through the office for the Keynote opening. Who knew there were so many talented thespians here?
To announce the release of Revu 2015, we brought you a new series of webisodes. But none could really compare to Rob’s star turn as dancer on a mission to bring sparkle to the world and help PDFs render faster on Revu iPad. BTW, don’t tell him it was really Studio GO and not his dancing…he couldn’t bear it.
Hungry for more? Stay tuned to the PDF Insider, Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn for the latest and greatest updates. Or if you just can’t wait, be sure to attend the upcoming 2015 Bluebeam eXtreme Conference from July 29-31, where you may see some of our latest video creations. There just might be more singing and dancing in store, so you don’t want to miss it!
Until next time,
In case you haven’t heard, this year the Bluebeam eXtreme Conference will be holding a Skills Challenge, where competitors will get the chance to show off their “eXtreme” speed, accuracy and creativity in executing key industry workflows in Bluebeam Revu.
To help prepare, we held a trial run at Bluebeam headquarters in Pasadena, where four teams comprised of some of our finest Beamsters went head to head to prove who knows Revu best. With representation from Account Services, Tech Support, Product Management, Development, QA and our Channel team, the evening was action-packed! Each team was given three problems and a Surface Pro 3 to solve them. Tensions were high as they raced against the clock to complete them.
In the end, the Dynamic Trio took home the prize, which included Starbucks gift cards and some fabulous trophies.
Think you got the skills to compete at eXtreme? There’s still time to sign up your team to compete in July, so visit the eXtreme Conference site to learn more! The winning team members will take home Microsoft Surface Pro 3s, so what are you waiting for?
Revu 2015.1.1 has just been released! This update resolves an issue resizing and maximizing the application window in Windows 8.1 environments, and includes some bug fixes affecting Studio Sessions and AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT users.
Revu and Vu iPad 3.0.4 are available as well and include support for iOS 8.3. Revu iPad also introduces the Stamp tool on the Markup toolbar and Stamp import functionality. For a full list of updates to both Revu 2015 and Revu/Vu iPad, check out the release notes page on our website.
Revu iPad and Vu 3.0.2 are now available. In addition to improvements and fixes to both, Studio Sessions created in Revu iPad now can be set to automatically expire at a specific date and time. To learn more, check out the full release notes.
Recently Bluebeamers in the Pasadena office noticed that our neighbors in the office across the street had been trying to communicate with us through sticky notes. And it looks like they may have a bit of a crush…
As flattered as we were, our hearts already belong to our customers, so we politely declined.
But eventually they understood, and now we’re really good friends. In fact, today we got this “Happy Friday” in Morse code message.
So we’re meeting up later for cocktails.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Until next time,
Revu iPad and Vu iPad 3.0.1 have just been released! This update includes overall improvements and fixes to Revu iPad, plus the addition of several new features to Vu iPad. For starters, Studio GO lets you immediately access and navigate your single sheet, large format drawings with an all-new instant rendering engine. Background Sync lets you continue working while files are syncing. Plus, folder hyperlinks that have been generated on your desktop are now supported for easier document set navigation on the go. To learn more about these new features and improvements, check out the full release notes.
That’s right, Revu 2015 has arrived, and we’re introducing highly requested new features and enhancements to help you work smarter, automate critical processes, bring greater clarity to your markups and gain more control and flexibility over project collaboration. You asked. We delivered.
Register now to see the new features in action and ask Bluebeam’s Account Services team questions in our live Revu 2015 post-launch webinar on Tuesday, February 17.

In case you missed it, this week’s new Revu 2015 feature leak webisode revealed three new (or enhanced) batch automation tools that will be included in Revu 2015: Batch Compare Documents, Batch Overlay and Batch Slip Sheet*. Whether you’re comparing documents or slip-sheeting in revisions, these new features will take you from imagining the possibilities to completing projects faster and more efficiently than ever before. Honestly, I could talk about how awesome these new tools are all day, but our beta testers can sum it up much better than I can. :)
“Our typical project has hundreds of sheets of drawings and multiple revisions, so the new batch tools help us tremendously. The combination of these new features may finally give us a construction site that’s paperless.”
— Gary Hisel, Gray Construction
“Bluebeam has always exceled at manipulating multi-page, large format PDFs, but now it’s even better with more powerful batch tools. The new Batch Compare tool will facilitate much faster plan coordination reviews between consultant drawings.”
— Nathan Woods, Taylor Design
“Bluebeam is always saving me time, but the auto slip sheet, superseded stamp and replace page content features are cutting my production time in half. Project managers/engineers are going to love it.”
— Keith Schwarting, ARC Document Solutions
