One of my favorite features in Revu is the ability to create custom markups and save them in the Tool Chest. I know I talk about this feature a lot. Today I thought it’d be cool to show you step by step how to create digital versions of the tools I have sitting on my desk.
Let’s start by looking at what’s on my desk:
This really is a photo of my desk.
Okay, so I might have a bit of a hard time creating a magic wand markup. But the highlighters and pens are easy to recreate. For example, here’s how to create and save a green highlighter:
- Select the highlighter tool.
- Change the highlighter color to green from the toolbar.
- Make a highlight mark.
- Right-click and select Add to My ToolChest/My Tools
Just follow these steps.
Now I just need to repeat this process to create a pink highlighter, blue pen and black pen.
Here are my tools!
When you add a markup to the Tool Chest, it is initially saved in drawing mode, which means that you can select it to replicate that exact same markup – some color, opacity, shape and size. You can double click on a markup to put it into properties mode.
Here are my tools in properties mode!
Once in properties mode, you can select a saved markup, for example, the green highlighter, and make a green highlight mark of any shape or size.
If only it were this easy to improve my penmanship.
Now that you know how easy it is to create and save custom markups, go ahead and make digital versions of your favorite tools! And remember, to keep on PDF’ing!
