More Love from our Revu 2015 Beta Testers

January 16, 2015

In case you missed it, this week’s new Revu 2015 feature leak webisode revealed three new (or enhanced) batch automation tools that will be included in Revu 2015: Batch Compare Documents, Batch Overlay and Batch Slip Sheet*. Whether you’re comparing documents or slip-sheeting in revisions, these new features will take you from imagining the possibilities to completing projects faster and more efficiently than ever before. Honestly, I could talk about how awesome these new tools are all day, but our beta testers can sum it up much better than I can. 🙂

“Our typical project has hundreds of sheets of drawings and multiple revisions, so the new batch tools help us tremendously. The combination of these new features may finally give us a construction site that’s paperless.”

— Gary Hisel, Gray Construction

“Bluebeam has always exceled at manipulating multi-page, large format PDFs, but now it’s even better with more powerful batch tools. The new Batch Compare tool will facilitate much faster plan coordination reviews between consultant drawings.”

— Nathan Woods, Taylor Design


ARC“Bluebeam is always saving me time, but the auto slip sheet, superseded stamp and replace page content features are cutting my production time in half. Project managers/engineers are going to love it.”
— Keith Schwarting, ARC Document Solutions

Our Beta Testers Are Loving the Dynamic Tool Set Scaler in Revu 2015!

December 18, 2014

Beta testing for Revu 2015 is underway, and the feedback we’ve received so far is very exciting! One of the tester favorites is the Dynamic Tool Set Scaler. This new feature eliminates the need to manually rescale tool sets by enabling markups to automatically resize when used on documents with different scales. Here’s what a couple of our beta testers have to say about it:

KDOT-logo“We’re excited about the new Dynamic Tool Set Scaler. Up until now, we’ve always had to create and maintain multiple tool sets containing the same sets of tools at different scales. Now we can consolidate these tool sets into one single set and leave it up to the reviewer to determine the scale of the tools.”

– Jonathan Mushock, Kansas DOT


Taylor logo

“… the ability to set the scale for Tool Chest items is simply awesome!”

– Nathan Woods, Taylor Design

Be sure to stay tuned for more sneak peeks of what our beta testers are saying about the new features in Revu 2015. And, don’t forget to check out our feature leak video on the Dynamic Tool Set Scaler to learn why size no longer matters. 🙂

Until next time,
