Favorite Feature Friday – How Can I Copy a Part of My PDF?

November 21, 2014

Have you ever looked at a PDF and wished you could copy just a little piece of it, say a toilet symbol, so you can use it elsewhere? Then, I have good news for you, because the Snapshot tool does exactly that!

With Revu’s Snapshot tool, you can copy any portion of a PDF, such as a logo, symbol, text or image, and paste it back into the PDF or another Windows application that supports an image, such as Microsoft Office.

To use it, select Edit > Snapshot.

Edit Toolbar


Then click and drag a rectangle around the area you wish to copy. Releasing the mouse button will take the snapshot.

Snapshot in action

The selected content is saved to the clipboard, maintaining the vector data and image quality of the original. You can paste the saved image by right-clicking where you want to place it and choosing Paste.

Simple, eh? Wait, it gets better. Since pasting that snapshot automatically adds the image to your Recent Tools, just drag it into My Tools to add it to your Tool Chest arsenal. Now you can use it over and over again.

Toilets Everywhere

Toilets everywhere, yay!

Until next time,



Bluebeam Goes Hollywood for the 2014 PRism Awards

November 20, 2014

Last night, we attended the Public Relations Society of America, Los Angeles Chapter’s 50th Annual PRism Awards at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood, CA.

Cocktail Reception

Team Bluebeam representin’!


The evening was hosted by actor John O’Hurley, who you may remember from Seinfeld and Dancing with the Stars fame, and he did a fabulous job!


Host John O’Hurley was wonderful.



The dessert wasn’t bad, either!


Bluebeam was nominated in the Ongoing Product or Service Program – Business-to-Business category for the Revu 12 launch campaign, and guess what? We won! This makes the second year in row –woo hoo!


We’re thrilled to be among the night’s big winners, which included Disney, Children’s Hospital LA, and SpaceX. Not bad company to keep, eh? Here’s hoping we make it three in a row next year!

Until next time,

Joni crossed the finish line in 2nd place behind Ken Block, but a second place finish gave him enough points to maintain his title lead. This is now our second in a row, as Topi took the championship last year. A big “thank you” to everyone who’s been showing their support for Bluebeam Rally! More details and photos to come.

Until next time,
