Bluebeam Revu Shortcuts

Bluebeam keyboard shortcuts can save you an enormous amount of time and many are worth the effort of memorization. Bluebeam has a Keyboard shortcuts document hidden inside Revu. This PDF document contains all the shortcuts for Markup and Editing, Viewing, Navigation, Page Manipulation, Show Tabs, Advanced Text, File Operations and miscellaneous items. All the function key shortcuts, and keystroke combinations of Alt, Ctrl and Shift are packed into this fabulous resource that most Bluebeamers have overlooked.

The Bluebeam Revu Keyboard Shortcuts is accessed by navigating to the Help Tab and clicking on the down arrow (inverted triangle) next to the Help icon. I find most people who find this document open it and only look at the first few pages. In essence, they only see the mouse navigation buttons. Continue on to the fourth thru sixth pages and you’ve hit the mother lode!

Now go get ’em Bluebeamers!

I’ve used bluebeam for many years, and would spend time on google looking for a shortcut I wanted. I never knew the list was right in bluebeam.

In Revu 2018 you can assign shortcuts to commands that don’t have a keyboard shortcut. Great new feature!
