So on Monday I got to tag along on a customer visit with Rob and Andrew from our Account Services team. They were doing a demo to show how using Revu and Studio could help this team communicate better with other departments within their company. As I was watching Rob in action, he demonstrated something I thought was really cool, and had no idea you could do in Revu 11.
When creating a Callout, you can set the properties of the text box to automatically resize based on how much text is in there. Now, some of you might not be quite as excited about this as I am, but if you are all about the little details, then I know you’ll love this as much as I do! Here’s how to do it:
Create a Callout and type in your comments. As you can see here, I’ve used the Properties tab to customize mine so the fill is a lovely shade of aqua.
Next, select the text box portion of the Callout and right-click. You’ll see a context menu pop up, where you’ll select Autosize Text Box.
And, that’s it! You’ll see your text box has magically resized to fit the amount of text in there more proportionately. No more unused extra white space!
You can also set your font size to increase or decrease when you resize your text box. Simply select the Callout, and then go to the Properties tab. Next to Font Size, check the Auto box.
By the way, you can also change your Preferences in Revu so that this setting is applied every time you create a Callout or Text Box. Just go to Settings, and choose Preferences (or Ctrl+K). In the Preferences window, select Markup and then check the box next to Autosize Text Box and Callout Markups.
Pretty cool, huh? Rob said this is one of those hidden gems he loves showing in demos, and I can see why. Do you have a favorite feature in Revu you consider a hidden gem, too? I’d love to hear about it, so let me know!
Until next time,
