Bluebeam Tip: Optimizing Bluebeam Revu for Dual Monitor Setups: Maximizing Efficiency and Productivity

Enhancing productivity while using Bluebeam Revu can often come down to how you've arranged your digital workspace. A dual monitor setup provides a substantial increase in screen real estate, allowing for more efficient document comparison, multitasking, and organization of your workspace. Here’s how you can optimize Bluebeam Revu for dual monitors:

  • Extend Your Display: Start by ensuring your computer's display settings are configured to extend the desktop across both monitors. This allows you to drag Bluebeam windows and tabs from one screen to another.
  • Detach Tabs: Within Bluebeam Revu, you can 'Detach' tabs to move individual documents onto the second screen. Simply right-click a document tab and select 'Detach,' then drag the window to your second monitor.
  • Utilize Profiles: Bluebeam Revu allows you to create and save custom profiles, which include your preferred toolbars and panels. Set up a profile optimized for dual-screen use to save time.
  • Tool Chest and Markups: With more space, you can keep your Tool Chest and Markups List open on one monitor while reading or editing a document on the other, keeping your tools and markup tracking visible at all times.
  • Compare Documents: Use your dual monitors to their fullest by opening and reviewing two documents side-by-side, which is ideal for comparing revised drawings or documents without having to switch back and forth.
  • Batch Operations: Run batch processes such as Batch Slip Sheet or Batch Link on one screen while continuing your work on another, allowing you to monitor the process without interrupting your workflow.
