A Profile, the configuration of Revu’s interface including the toolbars and panels, is one of the many ways you can customize Bluebeam. Revu ships with several interface Profiles, which you can toggle between by clicking the arrow next to the Patrick icon, errr, I mean the icon of a man with a bow tie located at Revu’s bottom right-hand corner.
You can also import additional Profiles from the Profiles Section of the Revu Start Page.
One of the best aspects of the Profiles feature is that it’s really easy to create your own. Just drag and drop to move your toolbars and panels. Or go to View/Toolbars to turn additional markup and editing options on, and unwanted options off. Add custom tool sets to the Revu Tool Chest, set up custom columns and statuses in the Markups lists, and add scripts to the Revu toolbar because, you guessed it, these features are all tied to the selected Profile in Revu. Once you’ve made all the changes you want, click the Profile Icon (not the arrow next to it) to display the Manage Profiles dialog box.
From here, you can add your newly created Profile to Revu. You can even Export your custom Profile (complete with all those tool sets, custom columns, statuses and scripts you created) to share with other Bluebeam users in your firm or on your project. Pretty nifty, huh?
