Bluebeam unveils new version of PDF editor

Features integration into Microsoft SharePoint, file management tab and revamped customisable interface

By CBR Staff Writer

Bluebeam Software has unveiled PDF Revu 8, a new version of PDF editor for the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry, which integrates PDF creation, markup and editing into digital workflows with new features for customisation and access to files.

The company said that the new features are, integration into Microsoft SharePoint and Bentley ProjectWise, a file management tab and a revamped customisable interface.

According to Bluebeam, the PDF Revu 8 offers file access tab for searching local and network drives for PDF files, as well as organising and managing recent files directly within Revu. It integrates into Microsoft SharePoint and Bentley ProjectWise, enabling users to retrieve, edit and check PDF files back in without jumping through hoops.

Revu is also debuting a Revit plug-in for one button PDFs, leveraging the same PDF creation technology that is used by AutoCAD, SolidWorks and MS Office users. The Revu 8 toolbars are fully customisable and the markups list has undergone metamorphosis. It allows users to add custom columns with formulas, drop-down menus and check boxes.

Revu 8 is an innovative, must-have tool for enterprises going digital, and it’s unmatched by anything else on the market.”
