New Features Now Available in Revu iPad and Vu

February 26, 2014

Now that Revu 12 is here, we have some exciting news for all you iPad users! Revu iPad 2.4 and Vu 2.4 are available for download on the Apple App store and include new features that make it easier than ever to work in the field. The latest release of Revu iPad contains some key updates found in Revu 12, including the ability to embed multiple photos into your markups from your camera, photo library or document manager with the Capture tool. The new Radius tool lets you quickly take radius measurements on the jobsite, while Perimeter and Area measurements now include a Depth parameter for calculating Wall Area and Volume. We’ve also introduced improved grouping functionality with SmartGroup™ measurement summation, so grouped markups will display accurate measurement values for all markups within a group. And, you can now add, delete and edit replies to markups in the Markups list.

In addition, Vu iPad, our free PDF viewer, has also been updated with the new Capture feature and SmartGroup support; plus, it now allows you to view comment threads for markups in the Markups list. The complete release notes are available on our website.

Have questions about these releases? Feel free to comment here, or post in the Bluebeam Community Forum. You can also visit our  iPad Resources page to access video tutorials of the features included in this and previous releases.
