Favorite Feature Friday – How Can I Copy a Part of My PDF?

November 21, 2014 by

Have you ever looked at a PDF and wished you could copy just a little piece of it, say a toilet symbol, so you can use it elsewhere? Then, I have good news for you, because the Snapshot tool does exactly that!

With Revu’s Snapshot tool, you can copy any portion of a PDF, such as a logo, symbol, text or image, and paste it back into the PDF or another Windows application that supports an image, such as Microsoft Office.

To use it, select Edit > Snapshot.

Edit Toolbar


Then click and drag a rectangle around the area you wish to copy. Releasing the mouse button will take the snapshot.

Snapshot in action

The selected content is saved to the clipboard, maintaining the vector data and image quality of the original. You can paste the saved image by right-clicking where you want to place it and choosing Paste.

Simple, eh? Wait, it gets better. Since pasting that snapshot automatically adds the image to your Recent Tools, just drag it into My Tools to add it to your Tool Chest arsenal. Now you can use it over and over again.

Toilets Everywhere

Toilets everywhere, yay!


To learn more about the Snapshot tool, check out this support article. Happy snapping!

Until next time,



Bluebeam Goes Hollywood for the 2014 PRism Awards

November 20, 2014 by

Last night, we attended the Public Relations Society of America, Los Angeles Chapter’s 50th Annual PRism Awards at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood, CA.

Cocktail Reception

Team Bluebeam representin’!


The evening was hosted by actor John O’Hurley, who you may remember from Seinfeld and Dancing with the Stars fame, and he did a fabulous job!


Host John O’Hurley was wonderful.



The dessert wasn’t bad, either!


Bluebeam was nominated in the Ongoing Product or Service Program – Business-to-Business category for the Revu 12 launch campaign, and guess what? We won! This makes the second year in row –woo hoo!


We’re thrilled to be among the night’s big winners, which included Disney, Children’s Hospital LA, and SpaceX. Not bad company to keep, eh? Here’s hoping we make it three in a row next year!

Until next time,

Revu and Vu iPad 2.9 are now available in the App Store. In this release, you can opt in to receive push notifications for Markup Alerts. Alerts will navigate directly to the markup of interest in the associated Session. Read the full release notes to learn more.

Still have Revu/Vu iPad 2.7?
Many of our users rely on automatic updates to keep their applications up to date. However, with the 2.7 Revu/Vu iPad release, the automatic update path was broken. This means you may still have an old version on your iPad. Although the issue has since been fixed for all future versions, users will still need to manually upgrade to the latest version.

You can check to see which version of Revu/Vu iPad you have by tapping the blue gear in the top right to open Preferences. Your most current version will be listed at the bottom, under About.

To manually upgrade:

  1. Open the App Store.
    App store
  2. At the bottom of the App Store, select Purchased.

  3. Find Revu/Vu in your list of apps and tap the Update button or the cloud icon.Update cloudORUpdate

If Revu doesn’t show up under the Purchased section, search for Revu in the App Store and select the same icon as shown above.

Bluebeam’s Phantoms Menace the Pasadena Office Again

September 16, 2014 by

Like the Sand People of Star Wars, the Bluebeam pranksters are back, and in greater numbers. The force has been strong with them lately, and our Pasadena office has seen a rise in the number of desks that have been “decorated” over the past couple of months.

Some were cute…


I felt a great disturbance in the force, as if millions of items were suddenly covered in gift wrap.


Some, not so cute…


This isn’t the desk you’re looking for. You can go about your business.


And, some were downright frightening!


It’s a trap!



Desks weren’t the only things haunted by our phantoms. Even the signage left over from our recent Bluebeam eXtreme Conference wasn’t safe.




They may, however, have left a clue as to who to point the finger at.



Until next time,
