A Different Way to Highlight Objects in Bluebeam Revu
If you’re a Bluebeam Revu user, you’re probably familiar with the Highlight tool that is found under the Pen menu on the Markups tab. This is a great tool—you can scribble with it, and it won’t ever dry out or get lost. You can even draw nice, straight lines with it if you hold down the Shift key while you use it.
Today, we’re going to look at a different way that I like to highlight objects in Revu with the Snapshot tool. With the Snapshot tool (found on the Edit tab), you can grab geometry and then reproduce it over and over without having to redraw it just by hitting Control-V.
If you take a snapshot of a blank area of your document and paste the blank snapshot back into the drawing, you can set the Blend Mode to Screen and set a fill color to use the snapshot to highlight objects.
