Favorite Feature Friday – Custom Toolbars


It’s Friday which means it’s time to talk about another one of our favorite features in Blubeam PDF Revu. In case you’ve missed this series, about a month ago, Bluebeamers organized a “Favorite Feature” dress up contest, in which we came to work dressed as one of our favorite features (yes we really are that quirky). I’ve been blogging about one of these Bluebeamer-selected favorite features (almost) every Friday.

Today’s feature – custom toolbars which Peter illustrated by Velcroing Revu toolbar icons to his shirt:

Revu’s custom toolbar feature lets you edit existing toolbars or create your own special toolbar, containing just the icons you want and nothing more. Here’s how to get started. First, go to View/Toolbars/Customize.

Next you’ll see the Customize Toolbars dialog box. Select an existing toolbar to edit (1), or click the plus sign to create a new one (2). Use the categories drop down menu (3) to select a category of available toolbar icons to display (such as File, Font or Markup) then select your desired icons below (4). To the bottom right (5), Revu will display the icons and operations you have selected for your custom toolbar.

Click OK and your toolbar will be added to the Revu interface. Don’t like the location of the toolbar? Just select it and drag and drop it to a new home.

What kind of custom toolbars have you created? Let me know. And remember, to keep on PDFin’!
