Quick Fix: Balancing Your View in Revu


Revu is oftentimes thought of as a fully-stocked drafting table or toolbox. Everything you need is right in front of you.  It even comes with what we like to call MultiView technology, and it’s probably one of Revu’s most powerful viewing features.

When working in Revu you can use its MultiView technology to split your screen up to 16 times, enabling you to view multiple PDFs side by side at the same time, just as you could with printed drawings. But, did you know there is also a trick for equally balancing the size of all your views?  Some may choose to resize them manually, but there is another quick fix that can save you a lot of time.  Here’s how it works:

To split your screen, simply click one of the “MultiView” buttons located on the lower left hand side of your screen.

Now, let’s say you want to view three PDFs or views side by side. You have to choose one view to split, so now you should have one view taking up 50 percent of the screen with the other two views taking up 25 percent of the screen.

Or, perhaps you want to have an even number of views (like four), but instead of splitting the view that is taking up 50 percent of the screen, you split one of the 25 percent views. Regardless of how you got here, the point is you now have an unbalanced view.

Yes, it’s true that you can manually resize unbalanced views by selecting and dragging the side bar over, but there is also a shortcut – simply hit “Shift F12.”  This instantly balances all views equally within seconds.

Finally, if you really want to make your life easier, you can also equally balance your views by simply clicking on the “Balance” button located under the “Window” tab.
