A New Bluebeam Tool Set


Bluebeam has a new flowchart Tool Set for you! It’s available on our Resources page and contains 33 symbols commonly used in flowcharts and diagrams.

Use this Tool Set to make flowcharts in Revu.

I know – I was surprised to see 33 different symbols in it, too. But our graphics designer, Brian, assured me they’re all relevant symbols…and that he didn’t add random shapes just for fun.

For those of you who are not familiar with Bluebeam’s tool sets let me explain…

To import the Tool Set, click the link on the Resources page to download a zip file. Then open it up and double click on the Tool Set .btx file. Just like magic, the Tool Set will automatically load into Revu.

Remember, each symbol in the Tool Set is an annotation. That means you can customize its color, line style, font and other properties settings. Once you place and customize the symbols, I suggest connecting them with Revu’s line, polyine and arrow tools.

If you want to learn more about Tool Sets, read about creating your own Tool Sets or watch a video about using the Tool Chest.

One last thing before I go. At least half of the Tool Sets on our Resources page, including the flowcharts, were requested by customers. And we obliged. So if you have any ideas for new Tool Sets, send them my way. And remember to keep on PDF’ing!
