Bluebeam Revu Mac delivers the core PDF editing, markup and collaboration capabilities from our Windows application to Mac. Add comments to your documents with customizable annotation and measurement tools and organize high-quality, smart PDFs using Revu’s editing features. Or connect project partners to collaborate on the same documents in real time with Revu’s integrated cloud-based solution, Bluebeam Studio™. What will you achieve with Revu Mac?
Features and Highlights
Markup & Measure
Use Revu Mac’s markup and measurement tools, including text, shapes, stamps, length, area, perimeter and more to redline or measure your PDFs. Store common markups in the Tool Chest™ for easy reuse later. Create custom tool sets and export them to project partners to streamline annotations. Want to know who said what, when? Revu’s customizable Markups List tracks the author, date, time and comments associated with each markup. Measure once and Revu automatically calculates all other related measurements for you and tracks them in the Markups List. When all is said and done, export the Markups List as a PDF or CSV Summary.
Easily edit PDF content by adding, deleting or rotating pages, combining multiple PDFs, or flattening your markups to make them a permanent part of the PDF. Revu Mac can even reduce the size of PDFs to make them more suitable for email and sharing. Want to share more than just what’s on the document? Create hyperlinks that jump to any page in the document, snapshot view, URL and more. Revu Mac even honors PDF security that restricts access to a file or requires a password for modification.
Collaborate in the cloud with anyone, anywhere, using Bluebeam Studio. Create or join an existing Studio Project from your Mac and start uploading PDFs for easy, streamlined file sharing. Access existing Studio Sessions or start a new Session on the go. Upload PDFs to a Session and invite attendees from around the world to view, chat and markup the same PDFs together in real time or on your own time. You can even upload Project PDFs into a Session and check in changes as you collaborate for real-time updates to Project files. All Session activity is tracked in a Record that links back to the PDF to easily review past Session activity.
Revu Mac uses tabbed navigation so you can easily switch between tabs, or view them in their own floating window. Revu’s MultiView™ technology allows you to split your screen up to sixteen times and sync tabs to pan and zoom in unison. Looking for more? Display a layout grid over your PDF and toggle snap-to behavior on and off for precise markup placement. Or enable layers to better organize the content in a PDF; just toggle layers on or off to control the visibility of all content and markups on that layer. Never get lost navigating your PDFs again.

What Others Are Saying
With the ever changing pace of our industry, we are constantly on the lookout for software that will allow our users to work with their projects in an efficient manner. With Bluebeam now being implemented into our office, we found the missing link we were looking for to increase our production while working with PDF files as well as the efficiency of creating these documents from AutoCAD as well as our MS Office Products.
Glen Hines, CAD Manager
Bluebeam is quicker, faster, and more user friendly than any other PDF annotating software I have personally used! Without mentioning all of the capabilities Revu has, the use of shortcut keys has by far significantly reduce the amount of time I spend annotating PDFs. The user interface and shortcut keys alone have made the software worth the investment. Looking forward to many years of maximizing the use of PDF files with Revu!

I can verify that up to this moment the program has been of help in correspondence between our firm and other companies hired to work for us. The program has made the process shorter and more convenient for our needs to communicate to others with our digital format drawings.
