length and angle feedback as you sketch details with your mouse, or enter precise dimensions with your keyboard.
- Batch Slip Sheet
- Keeping your complex file sets up to date has never been easier. Batch Slip Sheet automatically matches new revisions with their
corresponding current sheets and carries over all markups, hyperlinks, Spaces and bookmarks - all while stamping superseded sheets.

properties for both components independently.

pairs of files. New setup options auto-match files by pulling from file name, page label of page region.

between multiple drawing revisions, now auto-matches files by file name, page label or page region.

regions to output, such as a section of table columns and rows from a PDS into an Excel spreadsheet.

signatures from services such as DocuSign or digital IDs with embedded timestamps, which meet the requirements for PAdes LTV support.

- Sets allows you to view and access an unlimited number of files as if they are a single document, in a single tab. Filter and organize
files by page label or numeric sequence, and automatically identify, sort and insert revisions and addenda. Sets can even be saved and shared with
project partners in a convenient, read-only format.
- Format Painter
- The Format Painter enables you to standardize the appearance of markups in one fell swoop. Save time replicating a markup's color, line,
width, opacity, font and more by copying the properties of one markup and applying them to a markup or group of markups.

block, and automatically generate bookmark names or page labels from that content.
- VisualSearch Enhancements
- Revu's exclusive VisualSearch technology allows you to find symbols or graphic elements in any PDF, an entire folder of PDFs or a defined
PDF Set, regardless of variations in color, rotation or even intersecting lines. You can even generate a count from your search results or refine your
search selection for raster and vector art documents.
- Structures (available in Revu eXtreme) allows you to quickly add complex, hierarchical bookmarks to a file by pulling in dynamic
components from a selection of bookmark templates. Easily create your own templates or modify existing ones included in Revu. You can even share
these templates with project partners using the Structures Manager.

- Revu 11 adds new dimensions to 3D PDF creation, viewing and markup. Convert IFC files directly into 3D PDFs. Copy objects from a 3D PDF
and paste them into another PDF. Isolate regions of a 3D model using the Section Box tool for improved issue communication, and manipulate individual
objects within a 3D PDF using the Transform tool.

into the expression field to see a list of available functions and variables.

- Two of Revu's most popular markups tools received major upgrades. Callouts now include options for circular and triangular text boxes,
with leader lines that automatically re-attach to the appropriate side of the text box when moved. Cloud properties now include the ability to modify
the size of cloud curves, and an option to invert the cloud pattern.
- Split Documents
- Divide and conquer using Revu's new Split Documents feature to separate a PDF into multiple sections. A document, or a specific page
range within the document, can be split by top level bookmarks, file size or page count. Best of all, Split Documents does not affect the source PDF
since each section is saved as a new PDF file.

options to Convert Files and Combine Files are now just a click away from the Windows Explorer menu.
