How to Upgrade Bluebeam Revu 11 to Revu 12

If you have Bluebeam Revu 11 installed on your PC or laptop, there are a few considerations before you upgrade to Revu 12.

Revu 12 is only supported in Windows 7 and Windows 8.x so if you have Windows XP or Vista, you’ll need a Microsoft Update (and possibly may want to upgrade to a new computer). You can read all the Bluebeam Full Specs and hardware requirements here. Check with your IT department, or follow these instructions from Microsoft to upgrade your Operating System:

Upgrade from Windows XP to Windows 7
Microsoft reacts to XP upgrade critics with free file transfer tool
Upgrade from Windows Vista to Windows 7Upgrade to Windows 8.1 from XP, Vista or Windows 7

If you’re already using Windows 7 or 8.x you will need the Serial Number and Product Key which you received from Bluebeam when you purchased the software (The serial number and product key were sent in the license certificate that you received in an email message from registration@bluebeam.com – This may have been directed to your IT department if you have multiple licenses).
If you cannot find the email with your License Certificate, you can request that your License Certificate be resent to you:
•Open Bluebeam PDF Revu
•From the Help menu, click on About Bluebeam PDF Revu
•You will need to obtain both the Version and Serial Number that is listed in the top portion of the window.
•Send an email to registration@bluebeam.com and request that a new copy of the License Certificate be emailed to you. Please include the Serial Number, your name, company name, email address and phone number in the email.

When adding photos to PDFs, you can quick run out of real estate on your document. Bluebeam has addressed this limitation with their Photo gallery capture feature now available in Revu 12.

Your photo gallery can attach to any markup so use it with Punch symbols, cloud existing jobsite conditions, callouts of project milestones inside walls before you drywall, etc. It even lets PDF receipients view and download photos if they want to. Watch and learn:
