Did you know that you can use Bluebeam PDF Revu to count elements from PDFs? Here’s how:
Open the Measure tab in Revu. Click the Counter tool (the 123 icon). Use your cursor to click on each of the elements you want to count. Revu will place a Counter annotation everywhere you click.
For example, in the PDF below I counted the risers. For every click, Revu placed a blue square Counter annotation. By the way – you can change the shape and color of the counter markups in the Properties tab.
Cool Tip – Before counting, add a description of the element in either the Subject or Label field of the Measure tab. For example, I used “Two Story Foyer Risers”. This will help you in a few steps, I promise.
After you’ve counted, you can find the sum in two places – the Measure tab and the Markups list.
If you entered in a description in either the Subject or Label fields of the Properties panel before counting, that text will display in the Markups list. This is very useful if you are counting multiple items in a single PDF.
