How to Automatically size your Bluebeam callouts and text box markupsCallouts and text boxes are common markups on construction plans and documents. In Bluebeam Revu 11 you could check the autosize box in the properties tab of your text box or callout tools. This was an often overlooked feature so they improved it in Revu 12 by allowing you to set autosizing as a preference. You can set this as your individual preference so you’ll have perfectly sized boxes and callouts optimized based upon the amount of text you type.

To get to the preferences options click on Settings and selecting Preferences from the dropdown choices or use the shortcut CTL+K. Once there choose Markup and check the box next to “Autosize Text Box and Callout Markups”, then click OK. Bluebeam Revu Preferences to AUtosize Callouts and Text Box Markups

how do I turn the “appearance” category back “ON” for callout properties???

Gus, Callout properties include headings of General, Appearance, Custom, Layout and Options. Each can be minimized or opened. There is a triangle just left of each heading. Click on it to open or close. Opened has the triangle pointing down, Closed has the triangle pointing east.
