Split or Switch?

by

Today I learned something new about Bluebeam’s MultiView feature, which lets you view up to 16 PDFs or 16 views of the same PDF simultaneously. Splitting the view, either by right clicking on the document tab or clicking the icons in the bottom left-hand corner of Revu, results in displaying two views of the same PDF.

This is what happens when you split the view.

But, if you want to view two different PDFs side by side, the easiest way to do so is to right click on a document tab and select Switch.

Choose Switch

I can’t believe I didn’t know about Switch!

Switch is a faster way to display two different PDFs side by side.

If you Split the View, you can still display a different PDF by selecting its document tab. Switch is just a faster way to get the intended result.

Do you use MutliView? If so – do you split or switch? Let me know. And remember to keep on PDF’ing!
