Bluebeam Software announced the release of Revu 11. This new version of the software makes it easier for users in document-intensive industries to collaborate on project documents and digitize technical reviews, according to the company.
“Revu 11 makes anything possible by introducing cutting-edge technology for sharing feedback exactly how you intend it to be seen and truly collaborating anytime, anywhere,” said Richard Lee, Bluebeam Software president and CEO. “Whether you are flying across country, working on an underground tunnel project, standing on an oil rig platform or sitting at your desk and inadvertently lose your Internet connection, Revu 11 allows you to continue to edit files from the cloud and annotate them with a dramatically enhanced set of PDF markup and editing options.”
The software's Studio Projects Offline mode enables project teams to centrally maintain a digital master set. The enhancement to Revu's integrated cloud feature, Bluebeam Studio, allows users to access and edit files stored in a Studio Project from a desktop, tablet PC or an iPad, even with the loss of an Internet connection. Changes can be synced as soon as connectivity is restored, and users are warned if additional changes by others occurred while they were offline, ensuring that no edit is lost.
The AutoMark feature gives users the ability to organize PDFs by automatically creating bookmarks and page labels from PDF content, such as drawing title blocks. The Sets feature enables team members to view, navigate and edit multiple files as if they were one. The new Format Painter applies property settings across multiple annotations. Simply select a markup that contains the desired property settings, select markups that need to change, and Revu does the rest.
VisualSearch now performs more robust searches regardless of an object's size, color or rotation or even another intersecting object, the company says. Users can even apply a count from results that, when combined with Revu's formula option in the Markups list, can automatically generate easy material cost calculations for bids and estimates.
