Hiking the 2,650-mile Pacific Crest Trail…with Bluebeam PDF Revu

April 19, 2010

Things to pack for a hike:

  • Water
  • Food
  • First Aid Kit
  • Sunscreen
  • Tablet PC loaded with Bluebeam??

I never thought I’d be blogging about this! My coworker Beth just told me about a conversation she had with a user. She just helped him authorize his license of Bluebeam on his tablet PC – the computer he’s taking with him on his hike from Mexico to Canada.

Nope, that wasn’t a typo. This user is hiking the beautiful Pacific Crest Trail, a “2,650-mile scenic trail that runs from Mexico to Canada through California, Oregon and Washington.” I think most serious backpackers would agree hiking this trail in its entirety is the opportunity of a lifetime!

The user explained to Beth that he’s bringing his tablet PC along to store and read books and PDF copies of maps and even his campfire permit. He said he’ll be using Revu for most of his reading needs on the trip.

To our hiking Bluebeam friend – I hope you have an amazing adventure! And to everyone else, remember to keep on PDFin’!

Did I really just say “No?”

August 21, 2009


I just turned down an opportunity to go to the set of one of my favorite television shows! Crazy, I know…but let me explain.

Last weekend my coworker Joel attended a meeting for Hollywood script supervisors, which was hosted by IATSE 871. He was there to talk about how Bluebeam can be used on tablet pcs for inking production notes.

One of the most interested attendees just so happens to be the script supervisor for a very popular ABC drama…which is also one of my favorite shows! She invited Joel to bring a colleague and visit the set so we can see how she uses Bluebeam on a tablet. And Joel asked me to come with him!

But here’s the problem. I get very star-struck. Once, I was at a restaurant and saw the entire cast of Heroes. I stared at them throughout the entire meal.  Also, I saw Matthew Perry at a Dodgers’ game, and (inadvertently) yelled out “It’s Chandler!!” to the entire field box. Oops.

So when Joel asked me, I knew I had two choices:

  1. Go, make a total fool out of myself and get in trouble with the Bossman.
  2. Decline, and maintain some sense of dignity.

Do you think I made the right choice? Let me know. And remember, to keep on PDF’ing!

Hollywood Script Supervisors Using Bluebeam on Tablet PCs

April 7, 2009

This summer’s next Hollywood blockbuster, brought to you by PDF? Well, maybe.

A while back, we released a case study from a Hollywood script supervisor, who used Bluebeam on a tablet pc to significantly reduce the amount of time spent redlining scripts and production notes, and distributing revisions to editors and producers.

This past weekend, Bluebeam was once again on Hollywood’s radar. Bluebeam user Mary Louise McCloskey was a presenter at the Digital Script Supervising Workshop. The event, hosted by Cinema Workshops in Burbank, CA, was an opportunity for script supervisors to discuss various digital technologies that could improve their workflow.

A Bluebeam user talks about how she uses Revu to annotate Hollywood scripts.

At the event, Mary Louise shared how she uses Bluebeam PDF Revu on a tablet pc to make and track notes on scripts more quickly and efficiently during her session, “The Tablet: Digital Handwriting.” She talked about Bluebeam’s various markup tools that are accessible with a tablet pen, including the pressure sensitive pen, lines, a free text tool that recognizes ink and converts it to text, and more. Additionally, McCloskey shared how she uses Bluebeam’s tool chest to save commonly used annotations for faster markup. My coworker Joel also attended the event, and answered a few questions about Bluebeam at the end of the session.

When Joel told me that he would be attending this workshop, I knew I’d have to share it with everyone on the blog. After all, it’s a pretty interesting use of Bluebeam. What do you think? And remember, to keep on PDF’ing!
