Happy Favorite Feature Friday, everyone! As I mentioned in last week’s post, many of the Bluebeam staff came to work dressed as their favorite feature in Revu this past Halloween. Since there were too many great costumes to show in one post, starting today, we’ll be highlighting some of our favorites. Today’s favorite feature is definitely an unsung hero, called Get Line (Deskew).
Imagine someone sends you a scanned PDF and it didn’t come through quite right, so the lines are a bit crooked.
To fix a problem like this, you can de-skew the document using your keyboard:
- Press Ctrl+Alt+D. Your cursor will change to crossbars.
- Click and drag a line that should be horizontal in the PDF. (Alternatively, you can also click two points.)
- The Page Setup dialog will appear, showing a preview of the adjusted PDF. Click OK to complete the align/de-skew operation.
And voila! Your document should now be perfectly aligned.
By the way, you can also select Get Line in the Page Setup dialog, or use the Deskew button on the toolbar.
If you have a favorite feature you’d like to share, let me know about it!
Until next time,
