Today I made a list of all the things you might have time to do, if only you were using Bluebeam’s search feature to review PDFs more quickly:
1. Actually have time to eat lunch (eating at your desk does not count)
2. Go home at a decent hour (without taking work with you)
3. Clean your desk (it’s okay, my desk is messy, too)
In all seriousness, Revu’s search tool is probably one of its most time-saving features. That’s because it lets you search for key words in three places – the current PDF, all open PDFs or all PDFs in a specified folder. What’s more, you can multi-select search results and then apply common markups to them, such as highlighting, text editing, redaction and more.
Here’s a great example. A while back we published a case study about a postgraduate student who used Revu’s search functionality to search and redline 600 PDFs for her thesis. You can read all about it here. And remember to keep on PDF’ing!
