Take a huge sigh of relief, because Bluebeam is not your typical software company.
In short, Bluebeam Software makes smart, simple solutions for paperless workflows that leverage the PDF format. It all started way back in 1997, when we developed CAD to PDF creation technology for aerospace engineers. Now our award-winning PDF creation, markup and editing solutions are used by the world's top architecture, engineering and construction firms, as well as government agencies. We also have a strong following among tablet PC users, students and educators, accountants and even lawyers.
When it comes to developing innovative products, our philosophy is quite simple. We don't just create "easy-to-use" software, we design ways that make our software feel like second-nature. So, we're relentlessly working to mimic the way you normally work with pen and paper. We also avoid complex jargon and "corporatey" policies like the plague. In fact, we're confident you'll find Bluebeam to be a breath of fresh air, and appreciate that our people do everything they can to lend you a helping hand.
Revu 2016 Highlights
Legends allow anyone to have an immediate visual understanding of the markups on a PDF. Create Legends to show symbols with a basic description, or include additional information from the Markups list such as takeoff quantities, markup status and more. Watch your Legend automatically update as markups are added or modified. How’s that for Legendary?
Batch Markup Summary
Take your Markups list to the next level with batch functionality. Export comprehensive markup reports from multiple documents into a PDF, XML or CSV summary. Specify the information to include by using powerful sort and filter tools, create a personalized Summary Template, and then save your settings to produce customized
markup reports at any time.

First, we built Sets to help you manage an unlimited number of various-source PDFs as a single document in a single tab. Now, we’ve introduced Tags to help you better organize and sort files within a Set according to sheet number, name, type and more. With Tags added to your sheets, you can even generate a complete drawing log from your Set.
Don't let your markups go wild. Arrange markups with even greater precision. Place markups via Align Center, Align Middle, and Center in Document through the right-click context menu. AutoMark Enhancements
