New use for Bluebeam PDF Revu discovered!

June 23, 2010

I can’t believe it. All this time that I’ve been sharing helpful tips for using Bluebeam PDF Revu, I’ve overlooked one incredibly important workflow – splitting up a tab from an after work get-together. Thankfully, a creative Bluebeam user stepped up and sent me this PDF last week:

File this one under “Why didn’t I think of that?”

TK (I promised to protect the names of the innocent) fronted a happy hour bill, and needed his coworkers to pay up. So he scanned the receipt to PDF and used Bluebeam to markup who owed what. Brilliant!

Are you using Revu in an unexpected way? Let me know. And remember to keep on PDFin’!

Where do you wear your Bluebeam t-shirt?

June 4, 2010

The other day we received this photo from James, a Bluebeam user from Design Data, wearing his Mighty Bluebeam t-shirt!

James is representing the MB!

In his email, James explains that he was at the AISC NASCC conference, and one morning decided to wear his Mighty Bluebeam t-shirt to his booth. And, attendees loved it!

So I got to thinking…where do Bluebeamers where their Bluebeam t-shirts? Send me a photo to let me know, and I’ll share it on this blog. Don’t have a Bluebeam t-shirt? I’ve grabbed a stash of them. Email me your address, let me know what size you would like, and I’ll mail one right out to you. And remember, to keep on PDFin’!
