Bluebeam Tip: Optimizing Multi-Monitor Setups in Bluebeam Revu for Enhanced Workflow Efficiency

Bluebeam Revu is a powerful tool that can enhance your workflow, particularly when working with multiple monitors. When you have additional screen real estate, you can improve your efficiency by having your working documents on one screen and toolbars or panels on another. Here's how to optimize your multi-monitor setup with Bluebeam Revu:

  • Undock Panels: Bluebeam allows you to undock most panels. Click on the top of the panel and drag it to your second monitor. This way, you can have your PDFs on one screen and your panels like Tool Chest, Markups List, or Thumbnails on another.
  • Use Profiles: Create and save custom profiles that include your preferred toolbars and panels for different tasks. This can include a multi-monitor profile that places certain elements on your secondary monitor automatically.
  • Float Views: Right-click on a document tab and select "Float." This will create a new window that can be moved to a second monitor, perfect for referencing multiple documents simultaneously.
  • Sync Views: When comparing documents, use the Sync feature to link multiple floating views. This ensures that as you pan or zoom in one document, the other documents will follow suit.
  • Save Workspace: Once your setup is perfect for your workflow, save it. Go to "Window" > "Save Workspace" to save your current view configuration, including any floating views and undocked panels.

Keep in mind that an organized workspace can significantly reduce the time it takes to complete tasks.
