Bluebeam Delivers PDF Editing, Markup and Collaboration in First Mac-Compatible Version

Pasadena, CA (April 12, 2016)

Bluebeam®, Inc., leading developer of PDF-based annotation and collaboration solutions for document-intensive technical industries, announces the release of their first Mac-compatible solution, Bluebeam Revu® Mac.

Revu Mac delivers foundational PDF editing, markup and collaboration capabilities enabling architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) professionals to streamline key functions and work processes across Windows and Mac operating systems.

Bluebeam’s Studio Platform also now extends to Mac, allowing project teams to work together on the same documents in real time.

Revu Mac highlights include:

  • Studio Projects: Upload an unlimited number of PDFs and any other file types to the cloud and share Projects with project partners for simplified document management.
  • Studio Sessions: Invite attendees from anywhere to view, chat and markup the same PDFs together in real time, regardless of Internet access. All Session activity is tracked in a Record that links back to the PDF.
  • Markup Tools: Annotate PDFs with Revu Mac’s comprehensive collection of markup tools, including text, callouts, pen, lines, shapes, Cloud+, stamps, images and more.
  • Measurement Tools: Calculate length, perimeter, area and volume within drawings using Revu Mac’s measurement tools. The dynamic Markups list automatically calculates and tracks all related measurements to aid with estimations.
  • Overlay Pages: Compare two or more PDFs, even if they are skewed or different sizes. Overlay Pages allows you to pick points for comparison and assign different colors to each page so you can visually see the differences between each document.
  • Document Navigation: With tabbed document navigation, easily switch between tabs, or view them in their own floating window. Revu's MultiView™ technology allows you to split your screen up to sixteen times and sync tabs to pan and zoom in unison. Create hyperlinks that jump to any page in the document, snapshot view or URL.
  • Document Editing: Easily edit PDF content by adding, deleting or rotating pages, combining multiple PDFs, or flattening your markups to make them a permanent part of the PDF. Users can even reduce the file size of documents to make them more suitable for email and sharing.
