Bluebeam Tip: Maximizing Efficiency with Bluebeam Revu's Batch Link for Document Management


Efficiency in document management is crucial, especially when dealing with large sets of drawings and documents. One powerful feature of Bluebeam Revu that can help streamline your workflow is Batch Link. Here’s how you can leverage Batch Link to save time and enhance your project organization:

  • Create a standardized naming convention for all of your project documents to make it easier for Batch Link to recognize and create hyperlinks.
  • Use Batch Link to automatically generate hyperlinks in large document sets. This will allow you to quickly navigate through various documents by clicking on plan callouts or detail references that have been hyperlinked.
  • Before running Batch Link, organize your files in a consistent folder structure. This can dramatically increase the accuracy of the auto-generated hyperlinks.
  • Take advantage of the Page Region option within Batch Link to specify areas of your documents where hyperlinks are most likely to be found, improving the speed and accuracy of the linking process.
  • Combine Batch Link with Sets to easily manage revisions. As new document versions are added to a Set, Batch Link can update all hyperlinks to point to the latest files, ensuring that your team is always referencing the correct information.
  • After running Batch Link, always do a quality check to ensure all links are directing to the correct pages or documents. Although Batch Link is powerful, it's not infallible and may require some manual adjustments.

Streamlining your workflow with Batch Link not only increases productivity but also minimizes the risk of errors associated with manual hyperlinking. For additional resources and tools to optimize your use of Bluebeam Revu, visit NOVEDGE.
