Bluebeam Delivers PDF Editing, Annotation and Collaboration in First Mac-Compatible Version

Pasadena, California, USA (13 April 2016) Bluebeam®, Inc., leading developer of PDF-based annotation and collaboration solutions for document-intensive technical industries, announces the release of their first Mac-compatible solution, Bluebeam Revu® Mac.

Revu Mac delivers foundational PDF editing, annotation and collaboration capabilities enabling architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) professionals to streamline key functions and work processes across Windows and Mac operating systems. Bluebeam’s Studio Platform also now extends to Mac, allowing project teams to work together on the same documents in real time.


Revu Mac highlights include:

  • Studio Projects: Upload an unlimited number of PDFs and any other file types to the cloud and share Projects with project partners for simplified document management.
  • Studio Sessions: Invite attendees from anywhere to view, chat and annotate the same PDFs together in real time, regardless of Internet access. All Session activity is tracked in a Record that links back to the PDF.
  • Annotation Tools: Annotate PDFs with Revu Mac’s comprehensive collection of annotation tools, including text, callouts, pen, lines, shapes, Cloud+, stamps, images and more.
  • Measurement Tools: Calculate length, perimeter, area and volume within drawings using Revu Mac’s measurement tools. The dynamic Markups List automatically calculates and tracks all related measurements to aid with estimations.
  • Overlay Pages: Compare two or more PDFs, even if they are skewed or different sizes. Overlay Pages allows you to pick points for comparison and assign different colours to each page so you can visually see the differences between each document.
  • Document Navigation: With tabbed document navigation, 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. Create hyperlinks that jump to any page in the document, snapshot view or URL.
  • Document Editing: Easily edit PDF content by adding, deleting or rotating pages, combining multiple PDFs, or flattening your annotations to make them a permanent part of the PDF. Users can even reduce the file size of documents to make them more suitable for email and sharing.

"Revu is about uniting teams through a common language of technology,” says Bluebeam President and CEO Richard Lee. “By producing our first PDF solution for Mac, we are hoping to create a seamless user experience. Project teams can work how they’re used to, on their preferred hardware, while still collaborating on the same platform on the same documents. We’re excited to see how teams continue to leverage Revu and Studio to break down the barriers of what is possible with project communication.”


Revu Mac is available in English directly from Bluebeam and through a global network of Bluebeam Authorised Resellers 12 April 2016. Localised versions of Revu Mac will launch before the end of the year.
