Bluebeam Tip: Best Practices for Backing Up and Restoring Bluebeam Revu Settings

Bluebeam Revu is a powerful tool for professionals across various industries. To ensure that your personalized settings, tools, and profiles are preserved, it is essential to know how to back up and restore your Bluebeam settings properly. Here are some best practices:

  • Regularly Back Up: Make it a routine to back up your settings regularly, especially before upgrading to a new version of Revu or making significant changes to your tool sets.
  • Use the Export/Import Feature: Bluebeam Revu allows you to export settings to a file and import them later. This can be done through Revu > Settings > Backup & Restore.
  • Include All Relevant Data: Ensure your backup includes custom tool sets, profiles, and stamps. This comprehensive approach ensures a seamless transition when restoring settings.
  • Safe Storage: Store your backups in a secure location, such as an external drive or cloud storage. Companies like NOVEDGE offer reliable cloud storage solutions that can be integrated with Bluebeam for added convenience.
  • Document Your Backup Process: Keep a record of the backup process and schedule, especially if you're part of a larger team. This will help in maintaining consistency and avoid data loss.
  • Restoring Settings: When you need to restore your settings, simply use the import function found under Revu > Settings > Backup & Restore. Always make sure Bluebeam Revu is closed before restoring settings to avoid any conflicts.
  • Verify After Restoration: After restoration, verify that all settings, profiles, and tool sets are functioning as expected to ensure workflow continuity.

Remember, taking the time to back up your Bluebeam settings can save a significant amount of time and effort in the future. For more tips and tools that enhance your Bluebeam experience, explore the extensive offerings at NOVEDGE.
