Editing PDF Files: 3 Bluebeam Features I Can’t Live Without

by

Bluebeam is a great PDF editor with several tools that enable users to redline and edit PDF drawings. But if you had to pick just three PDF editing features in Bluebeam that you couldn’t live without, what would they be? Here’s my list:

PDF editing feature I can’t live without #1:
Right-Click to access all document assembly functions

I have a need for speed, but I’m really bad at remembering keyboard shortcuts. That’s why I love the right-click shortcut for assembling PDF documents in Revu. From the Thumbnails panel I can just right click and add, delete, insert, insert blank, rotate, copy and paste PDF pages. It truly is PDF editing made easy!

PDF editing feature I can’t live without #2:
The Typewriter tool

This is the easiest I’ve ever found to add text to PDFs. I use it all the time when reviewing and editing PDFs. I just grab it, click on the PDF and start typing. In fact, I have the Typewriter annotation (set with Century Gothic, my favorite font) saved in my Tool Chest. And that brings me to my final Bluebeam PDF editing feature I can’t live without…

PDF editing feature I can’t live without #3
The Tool Chest

I can’t talk about the Tool Chest enough! The ability to save commonly used markups across sessions of Revu, and quickly grab and use them, is great! Take a glimpse at my Tool Chest:

So there you have it, the three PDF editing features I can’t live without. How does your list compare to mine? Let me know. And remember, to keep on PDFin’!
