If you use Revu to highlight text in your PDFs, you are going to love this trick.
The highlighter, by default, simply places highlight marks on your file. But of course, if you highlight text, it means that those words are pretty important. And they’re probably something you need to refer back to, and remember some time in the future, right? Well, there’s a very easy way to copy highlighted text into Revu’s Markups List so you can do just that.
First, go to Edit/Preferences/Markups. Check Copy Selected Text into Markups.
Once this preference is turned on, any text that I highlight will be copied into the “Comments” column of the Markups List.
Now I have a few options for working with these notes. First, I can use Bluebeam’s Search tool and run a filtered search – scanning only my markups for keywords.
I can also create a PDF summary of my markups, basically making a “study sheet.”
The possibilities are endless! So go ahead, change that preference setting, grab that highlighter tool and keep on PDF’ing!
