Productivity tools available in Bluebeam Revu that are often overlooked and not covered in training classes.


  • Previous experience with Bluebeam Revu is helpful, but not required


Thanks for checking out my free class on some of my favorite features found in Bluebeam Revu.

The lecture videos were originally created for our YouTube channel.
I decided to create a free class here using that content in order to possibly reach and help more people.

This course contains nine lectures on topics discussing what are some of my favorite Bluebeam Revu features.
Lecture #1 discusses the use of the dimmer tool when it's hard to tell what is PDF content and what are markups in a PDF file.
Lecture #2 discusses the use of the disable line weights tool when plotted or scanned graphics visually obscure portions of a PDF file.
Lecture #3 discusses toolbars and how to edit them or create custom collections of functions into newly created toolbars.
Lecture #4 discusses how to place, edit and create new stamp markups with static and dynamic information included.
Lecture #5 discusses how to create and apply lists of status conditions that maintain an audit trail of markup manipulations.
Lecture #6 discusses how to create and share "ZIP" like files called PDF Packages using Bluebeam Revu.
Lecture #7 discusses the scripting capabilities only available in the Extreme edition of Bluebeam Revu.
Lecture #8 discusses how to create digital dashboards to help project participants find information more easily.
Lecture #9 discusses some of the ways in which you can share digital dashboards with your project participants.

If you like what you see in this class and would like to discuss training options for your organization my contact information is provided in the videos.

I've been teaching people how to use technology since 1985. I achieved the titles of Bluebeam Certified Instructor and Bluebeam Certified Consultant in 2015. I have created numerous pre-structured training classes regarding Bluebeam and I specialize in creating one-off completely custom Bluebeam training classes.

Organizations come to me for consulting & training when despite the best efforts of talented people, they're just not getting the results they expected from their e-Construction investment.

Need a solution for your construction administration and inspection woes on infrastructure projects, or looking to get the most out of your Bluebeam investment - contact me anytime. (610) 715-3178
